Summer Music on The Costa del Sol

News date: Friday, 09th of July, 2004

Benalmádena, Fuengirola and Mijas once again offer a packed cultural programme for this season The attractive combination of live music and warm summer nights transforms the summer concert agenda along the Costa del Sol. The musical deficiency of the rest of the year turns into a veritable deluge of cultural events during the summer months. One festival ends and another begins, delighting both local residents and tourists who enjoy the perfect combination of sunshine during the day and music at night. This year, just in Fuengirola, Mijas and Benalmádena, there is something for all tastes. July started with last weekend’s avant-garde musical extravaganza (AV Festival), but this is to be followed by the more classical Ciudad de Fuengirola Festival, Mijas’ Celtic Night and the Musical Theatre Festival.

The Sohail Castle in Fuengirola is one of the most attractive settings for musical events this summer. Concerts take place here practically every weekend in July and August. Last weekend the AV Festival kicked the season off with a programme of some of the most independent and avant-garde musicians. This year’s festival was opened by a very special guest, the singer of the legendary band The Smiths, who gave his first concert in Spain in ten years. The festival, now in its third year, continued with Stereolab, Shellac, Four Tet, Squarepusher or Telefon Tel Aviv.

But all this modernity is now to be followed by something more classical. Once again this year the Ciudad de Fuengirola Festival takes place in the Sohail Castle, with the opera Madame Butterfly, Víctor Ullate’s ballet and Spanish operetta (zarzuela) with Katiuska. Then the Noches del Castillo festival takes over, with some of Spain’s most commercial music including Nuria Fergó and Manu Tenorio.

This year also boasts a new event: the Mystic Festival, with three launches from the national music scene: Dover, Sober and Sexy Sadie.

Furthermore, throughout July and August the Palacio de la Paz is host to the II Festival of Musical Theatre, with performances (in Spanish) of “Peter Pan”, “Blood Brothers”, “The Magic of Broadway” and the world premier of “Aladdin”.

Although less spectacular than last year’s, the III Benalmádena Summer Festival boasts an interesting programme with Carlinhos Brown and two present day flamenco stars: Tomatito and Estrella Morente.

There’s also plenty going on for theatre lovers as Mijas celebrates its 18th annual Villa de Mijas Theatre Festival with fun Spanish companies such as Tricicle, Yllana or Rafael álvarez “El Brujo”. Mijas is also host to its annual events on La Cala beach with the festivals Calapop, and Cala Reggae.

And that is all just along the stretch of coast that comprises Benalmádena, Mijas and Fuengirola. A number of summer festivals are also being organised in Malaga and Marbella, among many others.
