After the success of the previous edition, the white village of Mijas will celebrate its second Luna Mora Festival. Last year, this unique event managed to attract more than 20,000 visitors and organisers are hoping to more than double that figure attracting over 45,000 people to this years festivities.
One of the highlights of this year’s event is the fact that it will be celebrated over two consecutive weekends; from the 17th to 19th July and from the 31st July to 2nd August. The other notable addition this year is that all the activities and attractions will extend into the centre of town multiplying the festivals surface area by five.
The city of Malaga is getting ready to host, for the 3rd year running, a fabulous series of summer evening concerts. This latest edition, of what has become a consolidated event in the city’s summer events calendar, will delight spectators with four free classical music concerts to be held in the Gibralfaro Castle and the Alcazaba fortress.
The Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra and two musical ‘ensembles’, ‘Músicos Concerto Málaga and Ensembre Ars Cello, the latter made up of students, ex-students and teachers from Malaga’s Music Conservatory, will be performing in two of Malaga’s most iconic land marks.
This Summer, the picturesque white village of Mijas will play host to a series of concerts featuring some of the world’s best cover bands and singers.
Under the ‘Hot Summer Nights’ banner, this series of concerts kicks of next Thursday 25th June with a fantastic Swing Night followed by Spain’s top ‘Bruce Springsteen’ tribute band in Friday 26th June.
If you’re planning on spending your summer holidays on the Costa del Sol and enjoy a good live music concert, you’ve come to the right place!
Below we’re put together a guide to the best concerts on the Costa del Sol this summer including the venues and ticket prices. We’ve broken the list down by month and you can even download a pdf copy of the guide to keep handy.
If you’re planning a holiday in Benalmadena and are looking for fun ideas to keep the kids happy, this post is going to come in handy.
We’ve put together a list of – what we consider to be – the best things to do with kids in Benalmádena. Whilst most of the attractions and activities recommended here are located in Benalmadena, there are a couple (Aqualand and Bioparc) which are in neighbouring towns but which need to be included on this list as they’re some of our favourites!
All three of Selwo’s Costa del Sol parks and attractions (Selwo Marina, Selwo Aventura and the Benalmádena Cable Car) have put together a magical events and entertainment programme for this Christmas.
Until the 6th January, each of the parks and attractions will offer themed events, magical characters and exhibitions for kids.
Apparently, all children (aged 3 to 9 years) who visit any of the 3 parks over the Christmas period will receive a special gift: A kid’s season ticket which grants them unlimited free access to all the Selwo parks during 2015. So what’s the catch? Well, they need to be accompanied by an adult paying the full entrance price.
