Keep up-to-date with whats happening within the property market on Costa del Sol.Go
Despite the uncertainty about Starlite’s future in Marbella last year it seems like the organisers and the Town Hall have come to an agreement and this great music festival will take place this year. This is great news for the holiday makers who want to combine a sunshine and beach holiday with seeing some amazing acts live in concert.
Today we’re answering your questions about Starlite and live music on the Costa del Sol to help you plan your next trip.
What is Starlite?
Starlite is a very popular music festival which takes place in a spectacular location just outside Marbella’s centre in July and August.
Why is it so popular?
Starlite offers a great combination of concerts with big names, live music sessions, gastronomy and bars. You can go up to Starlite for a drink or a bite to eat even when there isn’t a concert and they have added in live music sessions outside the main auditorium to offer cheaper tickets with an excellent atmosphere and some great performers. There will also be DJ sessions every night, which will be a great addition to your holiday this year.
Who is playing this year?
Lots of fantastic acts have been announced already, with many more to come over the coming months. We’re very excited that we can see the legendary Sting on the 19th of July, as his live performances are always wonderful. Il Divo will also be performing in July, bringing their “classical crossover” style to Marbella on the 28th of July. Fans of Spanish music and dance shouldn’t miss David Bisbal on the 20th of July and extraordinary dancer Sara Baras who will be performing on the 11th of August. James Blunt is also performing at Starlite, taking to the stage on the 3rd of August, as part of his Afterlove Tour.
How can you get tickets?
Tickets can be bought online here and you can already secure your tickets for all the artists that have been announced and also book tables for the DJ sessions. As there are lots more artists and events to be announced, sign up for the newsletter on the website so you can get all the updates http://starlitemarbella.com/en/
Where should I stay?
Where else can I see live music this year?
We are lucky to be able to have a lot of excellent live music in bars, restaurants and festivals here on the Costa del Sol. However, they can be late to be announced, so as you plan your trip keep your eyes peeled! Fuengirola’s Sohail Castle and the Puente Romano Tennis Club always do great concerts and the ferias through the summer are wonderful if you like flamenco and Spanish pop. Check the website for concert promoter Crazy Music Productions and the event sections of MyGuideMarbella and Marbella Azul for what’s happening during your stay.
Here are some highlights to look forward to –
- If you’re an Indie Fan, head to the festival in the small village of Ojen just outside Marbella in the first weekend of July for Ojeando.
- Dance music fans will enjoy the three day music festival Weekend Beach Festival in July near to Malaga and also the electronic music and dance festival at the beginning of August in Estepona.
- In September the focus moves to Gibraltar for the MTV Gibraltar Calling on the 21st and 22nd which always attracts some very big names. Find out more
Whichever concert or festival you choose they start and finish late, so we recommend choosing a conveniently located holiday rental property which you can reach by cab from the venue. That way you can come and go as you please and recover the next day with a lazy day on the sofa and plenty of coffee! If you let us know where you want to go and see live music, and on what dates, we can recommend the best holiday rentals with availability. Get in touch today
