Inaugurated in 2013, a cultural group, Vega Educa dedicated to environmental sustainability for the maintaining of the Vega staged its second show of music and poetry in April 2014, in Granada. Attended by Tim Robbins, artists (musicians and poets) included Miguel Rios, La Barraca, The family of Enrique Morente with the band - Lagartija Nick, Paco Ibanez, Lara Bello, Luis Garcia Montero and Laura Garcia Lorca. It was said the Leonard Cohen had been invited, but could not be tempted from his recurrent spiritual retreat for a matter so terrestrial. Viva La Vega!
