As we approach the busy summer season, we’ve decided to put together our – now regular – list of the top concerts on the Costa del Sol for this summer 2013. There are some fantastic musicians and entertainers performing live at various venues along the Coast; however, this year, one event stands out from the rest: The Starlite Festival in Marbella.
After the success of last year’s series of concerts in the concert arena located in the Nagueles quarry, the organisers have lined up an even more impressive list of top international and Spanish artists including Julio Iglesias, Jamie Cullum, Bryan Adams, Paco de Lucía, UB40 and Alejandro Sanz. The Starlite Festival will run from the 23rd July to the 24th August and you can see the schedule for the concerts below. Read More→

The ‘Arcos de Buenos Aires’ Company will be performing their highly acclaimed ‘Reina de la Plata’ Show in the Moonlight Theatre at Sunset Beach Club this coming Saturday the 11th May 2012.
This is now the fourth time this talented group of musicians and tango dancers have performed at Sunset Beach Club and judging by the popularity of previous editions, we are expecting tickets to sell out quickly.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the format of the ‘Arcos de Buenos Aires’ Shows, we’ll quickly explain: The company is led by prestigious conductor and composer Walter O. Tejada Carranza and is made up of 16 artists. Throughout the evening, spectators will be treated to some of the most amazing and traditional tango dancing routines coupled with the beautiful music of a string chamber orchestra. It really is a fabulous combination and well worth witnessing for yourselves!
Tickets are just €10 and can be purchased at the Leisure Desk located on the 6th Floor of Sunset Beach Club or at the entrance of the Moonlight Theatre on the night of the show.
The show starts at 9.00pm on Saturday 11th May 2013.
Hope to see you there!
Organised by our friends at Active Sound Productions, this event includes a performance by Antony Wolfson, rated number 1 UK & Worldwide Rock & Roll Artist 2013 by premium independent global music website, ReverbNation.

At the start of last summer we wrote a blog post highlighting the main music concerts on the Costa del Sol over the summer. Well, it proved so popular that we’ve decided to do the same for this summer 2012 season!
If you are on holiday on the Costa del Sol– or indeed if you live here permanently – it’s always nice to know what’s happening on the concert scene over the summer. I know many of our guests at Sunset Beach Club are more than happy with our great live music and entertainment shows in our Moonlight Theatre (shameless plug!) but there are many guests who also like to get out and see some of the Coast; a good concert is a great excuse for this
Without further a do, here is our ultimate list of Costa del Sol concerts for this summer: Read More→
