June 16th is Bloomsday:

Sleeping with Ulysses!

My head is full of pebbles and rubbish and broken matches and bits of glass picked up 'most everywhere. The task I set myself technically in writing a book from eighteen different points of view and in as many styles, all apparently unknown or undiscovered by my fellow tradesmen, that and the nature of the legend chosen would be enough to upset anyone's mental balance.
(Letters, 24 June 1921) James Joyce

I've put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant, and that's the only way of insuring one's immortality.

(Joyce cited in Richard Ellmann's James Joyce)

June 16th. Bloomsday - is an annual celebration among Joyce fans throughout the world, from Fort Lauderdale to Melbourne. It is celebrated in at least sixty countries worldwide, but nowhere so imaginatively, of course, as in Dublin. The novel, Ulysses, by James Joyce recounts the hour-by-hour events of one day in Dublin - June 16, 1904 - as an ordinary Dubliner, Leopold Bloom, wends his way through the urban landscape, the odyssey of a modern-day Ulysses.

Marbella: International Arts Festival. The dream of a group of dedicated art lovers in Marbella is now a reality.

The 1st Festival Internacional de Arte Marbella (FIAMAR) will showcase the talents of some 80 artists, photographers, sculptors, ceramicists and digital artists in a colourful, crowd-pulling street festival on the Avenida del Mar. Artists will display their work in individual white tents, and the street festival is expected to draw artists and public from far and wide.

The bustling Avenida will be covered with awnings to shield the public from Marbella’s heady summer sun, and a children’s activity tent will be set up to encourage the creativity of the younger art lovers.
