Default Pollensa Music Festival 2013

We were wondering if anyone knew who was performing this year and where I could find out the dates etc. Tried googling Pollensa Music Festival 2013 but it brought up nothing. Hope someone might be able to help.
Many thanks

The festival was thrown into chaos because of a fallout between Joan Valent, the director, and the town hall. Valent has been reinstated as director, so things should be being organised, but I'm afraid the town hall is in a state of total confusion at present, so patience will probably be required before we know definitively what is happening. Valent had, prior to the fallout, already been in contact with a number of leading figures from the arts world, such as author Ian McEwan, about participation this year.

Looks good, particularly;

Thursday, 15 August: Music in the streets of Pollensa.

We don't go home until the 17th so we will make a point of wandering the streets on that Thursday!

Is that something that they've done at the festival before? Just wondering if anybody has been and what to expect.
