A Carnival talent show will decide the theme for the upcoming fiestas in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

The public will be able to vote between Las Vegas, Planet Earth or Disco Pop


In a year without fiestas, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is already working on the next Carnival, hopeful to enjoy it once again in 2022. Each year, the city organises the fiesta around a central theme. These have been, for example, The Eternal Spring of Peace and Love, Magic and Fantastical Creatures, La Belle Epoque, Ancient Rome or A Night in Rio. It’s up to the public to choose their favourite option for the Carnival allegory. For the immediate future, there are three alternatives: Las Vegas, raising awareness to save Planet Earth, and Disco Pop.

In previous editions, the audience voted online during a specific period of time. On this occasion, the organisers have scheduled a TV show for February 26, during which viewers will be able to cast their votes via SMS. The programme will start at 9:30 PM (Canary Islands time), and has been conceived as a kind of talent show, with the participation of Carnival's main stars. It will be broadcast on the international channel of Televisión Española, as well as on Televisión Canaria and La 2.

"Imagina 2022" ("Imagine 2022") is the name given to this show, which will turn the Gran Canaria Arena —home to Club Baloncesto Gran Canaria and the arena that hosted the 2014 World Basketball World Cup— into a spectacular Carnival set.

Murgas, comparsas, Queens and Drags will all shine their lights in this TV show, which will culminate with the result of next Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Carnival’s central theme.
