Thanks to a packed schedule of concerts which are growing every year, Marbella is becoming a popular destination for lovers of the best live music in amazing surroundings. At the international tourism fair Fitur in January, it was announced that 2016 is going to be the biggest year yet, with the Starlite festival promising 24 concerts between 14th July and 20th August.
As well as amazing concerts, Starlite has fashion shows, a gourmet area, an outdoor disco and art events during their month long “boutique festival”. Located in an old quarry in the hills above Marbella, it’s an amazing experience and becoming an important part of the summer event schedule.
There are many more artists to be confirmed but it’s already a stellar line-up. The big news is that Tom Jones is coming back to perform on the 1st August! We’re excited to see that one of the best guitarists of all time Santana will be performing on 24th July and international classical music quartet Il Divo will be performing on 3rd August as part of their Love & Passion Tour. Grammy winner and Spanish pop icon Alejandro Sanz will be performing at Starlite again on August 9th after a sell-out concert in 2015 and tickets are sure to sell out fast. Keep checking their website http://starlitemarbella.com/ for the latest stars to be announced.
The village of Ojen holds the OJEANDO Festival on the first weekend in July, which is the most important independent pop, rock and Indie festival in the area. There are four stages around this picturesque village, with three of them free to enjoy, and you can see a wide range of hot new talent. As well as the music there’s a market and even a play area for the little ones and the atmosphere is amazing. Our boutique hotel is just a few minutes away from this great festival, so it’s a great option to combine your holiday with a weekend festival and not have to slum it!
The Puente Romano Tennis Club also holds a number of concerts in July and August in a lovely setting, although they tend to announce these dates quite late in the year. In addition to these concerts, there are loads of ferias between April and September with live music (particularly flamenco) taking centre stage.
Marbella’s feria is at the beginning of June, with wonderful concerts, events, fireworks, a fair and the whole town out partying. This is a really wonderful way to see Marbella at its best. We have a list of ferias and festivals for you to help you plan your visit around some of the area’s most important events.
