Sierra Espuña International Early Music Festival (ECOS) emerges with the firm intention of filling Territorio Sierra Espuña and its six municipalities: Aledo, Alhama de Murcia, Librilla, Mula, Pliego and Totana full of Early Music.

Next ECOS festival will be held between 18-28 July 2018.

Sierra Espuña is located within the Region of Murcia and comprises the emblematic Sierra Espuña Nature Reserve and the six municipalities surrounding it. An area of outstanding patrimonial and historical wealth. For this reason, ECOS is far more than just a festival: it is an encounter with sensations and sonorities, becoming a unique experience.


At ECOS, early music is mingled with gastronomy, nature and heritage in order to provide with exceptional cultural and touristic offerings; this being built up around the international academy, early music concerts, children´s activities, and the experiences in the area.


Betting on young talent, the festival´s ensemble, conducted by Jorge Losana, and the resident ensembles of his international academy will share the stage with early music leading figures such as Manfredo Kraemer and Pablo Zapico.
