Next Thursday 13th February sees the start of another edition of the Rockin’ Race Jamboree music festival in Torremolinos. This is the event’s 20th anniversary and will attract thousands of visitors from all over the world eager to enjoy a fun packed long weekend to the sounds of their favourite musical genre: music with American roots from the 50’s.
This year the festival’s organisers wanted to do something special to commemorate this 20th anniversary… They will be flying in some of the world’s top artists exclusively for the event! Here’s a list of these top names:
- Young Jessie featuring Mike Sanchez & his Band
- Sleepy Labeef
- Barrence Whitfield
- The Rapiers
- The Straitjackets with Kaiser George
- Kim Lenz
The festival will take place in two locations: The Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones in Torremolinos and the Buenavista Apartments. Last year more than 3000 people participated in the event and organisers are hoping that this year will attract even more rock n’ roll fans.
The following bands and artists complete the line up for Rockin’ Race Jamboree 2014:
Eddie Angel’s Guitar Party feat Smokestack Lightnin’; 49 Special; Keith Turner & The Southern Sound; Eddie & the Backfires; Randy Rich & The Poor Boys; The Mean Devil; The Intruders; Drugstore Cowboys; Moonshine Reunion; Los Mambo Jambo; The Imperial Surfers; The Honky Tonkin’ Boozers; The Hitones.
