Santa Cruz de Tenerife, February 28, 2011. - Santa Cruz de Tenerife's Plaza del Príncipe will become Plaza Dorada from March 3-13 in an initiative from Compañía Cervecera de Canarias to support the Chicharrero Carnival. It will feature over 33 hours of musical performances by 14 local bands during the main days of the celebrations.
For this reason, Plaza Dorada will become a tent covered by a 100-square-metre net of LED lights. Its perimeter will be covered with over 62 metres of canvas decorated with some of the carnival's motifs used by Dorada in its limited-edition aluminium bottles produced for the event. The decorations will be completed with other elements related to the celebration and the brand, among them the Chicharrero Carnival poster, and pendants and medallions.
The 25 shows offered by Dorada will take place on March 4, 5, 7, 11 and 12, the days with a large audience turnout, beginning at 22:00 and running until 06:00 the next day.
Some of the most representative bands of local music are among the chosen performers, such as Pepe Benavente & Trío Diamante, Salsarengue, KDTS, Kimbara, Orquesta G.A.S., Los Concejales and DJ Richard.
In addition, the following acts will also be present: Sensación Latina, Nueva Línea, Combo 5, Clave de Son, Son 21, Rocking Boys and Almas de goma.
Organising the musical concerts at Plaza del Príncipe is just one of the many endeavours carried out this year by Dorada, which has been named the official beer of the Chicharrero Carnival. Some of the company's other novel efforts include the commercialization of a limited edition of 250,000 Dorada aluminium bottles decorated with Chicharrero Carnival motifs, in addition to 780,000 cans decorated specially for the event.
Dorada's activities also include the distribution of over a million plastic cups across Santa Cruz's main points of sales during the Carnestolendas celebrations. These cups carry a poster of this year's carnival, which pays tribute to Enrique González, one of the legendary celebrities of the Chicharrero Carnival.
In addition, Dorada will also sponsor all the carnival contests, and has implemented an important advertising campaign across more than one hundred marquees, four of which are articulated and incorporate the new bottles designed for the event.
