Since then, the brotherhood of the Gypsies of Utrera has paid tribute year after year to important figures of this art (Caracol, Mairena, Camarón, Fernanda and Bernarda, Lebrijano, etc.).

The Marinaleda Flamenco Festival is characterized by its unusual format, only four artists, and by its open support for authentic flamenco without any frills. It is organised by the Town Council.
