Sixties Mods descend on Leon

Purple Allnighter

At the end of Autumn, Leon celebrates 1960s Mod culture with the Purple Weekend Festival, with fans coming from all over the world to enjoy concerts, art and a display of costumes and hairstyles from the era.

Headlining at the event, which runs from 6-8 December, are founding members of the 13th Floor Elevators and a pioneer of the psychedelic rock genre Roky Erickson, from Texas, punk new-wave band The Rezillos, from Edinburgh, and California-based musician Nick Waterhouse.

Other bands from across the world are also featured in the three-day festival along with a classic Scooter Run around the city and exhibitions from Pintachan, a Sevillian illustrator whose screen print T-shirts have been featured in the likes of Q Magazine and Monocle, and Mod photographer Felipe Hernández.

The events take place across the city at several venues, with various cover prices. El Gran Cafe offers free entry, Pepsi Espacio Vias offers tickets from €6 and El Studio from €18.
