The Deià International Music Festival was created in 1978 by the late Patrick Meadows, American musician and poet, and his partner Stephanie Shepard. Since 2000, the artistic director of the festival is the pianist Alfredo Oyágüez Montero.

This edition is held from June 3 to September 30 at the Son Marroig Music Hall, a spectacular enclave on the Mallorcan coast in the municipality of Deià. The possessió, whose origins date back to the 16th century, was one of the properties acquired on the island by Archduke Luis Salvador of Austria in the Serra de Tramuntana, and the museum that is kept inside is dedicated to him.

During the intermission of the concert you can enjoy the fabulous views of the sea and an Ionic style temple made with white Carrara marble, accompanied by a glass of cava.
