The City Council of Granada requires the Vijazz to be held on the original dates

The city of Granada has sent a letter to the management of Banco Sabadell Vijazz Penedès asking that the event back to its original dates in the next edition, since they change produced this year has solapi with the Festival of Granada. The measure has unanimity among all the political parties in the Council granadenc.

The Festival of Granada has historically held the second weekend of the month of July this year, when there are placed also the Vijazz, which traditionally took place the previous weekend. From the granadenc Council considers that the holding of the event hurts the regional assistance Vilafranca parallel to the Festival and, especially, in the View of DO Penedès wines and CAVAS, which this year reaches its fifteenth Edition and that has four more years of seniority that the Vijazz.

It is the second time that the two events coincided. As happened in the year 2012 and, from the city of Granada, it is expected that, as then, the change of dates of the Vijazz is only punctual.
