If you’re travelling to Benalmadena between February and April this year (2024), you’ll be delighted to hear that the Town Hall, together with the Port Authority, have organised some fantastic events for this quieter winter/spring period.

In an effort to inject a little life to the Marina and offer visitors entertaining events encompassing culture, music and workshops, the organisers have put together a diverse range of initiatives.

Read on for details of all the events taking place from February to April.

Beatlemania – 24th & 25th February 2024

Beatlemania en Puerto Marina, Benalmadena

A full weekend dedicated to the Beatles! You’ll enjoy facemask workshops, musical games, and arts & crafts market and an amazing Beatles Tribute band, The Silver Beats. They actually played in our Moonlight Bar a few years ago and we highly recommend you head down to the Marina on Saturday or Sunday to watch them.

OnlyFest – 9th March 2024 (Postponed to 6th April due to bad weather)

OnlyFest is a special event dedicated to Singles. So if you’re looking for the love of your life, this may be the event for you! There will be live music all day with OBK, Play and El Mandato del Loco as well as fun activities including speed dating, confessions and express weddings with Elvis Presley!

March is ‘Folklore’ month with events inspired in Andalucía, Japan and Celtic culture (for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations)

Andalucía Day – 2nd March 2024

Just two days after Andalucía Day, the Marina will honour its local roots with a series of concerts (Los Voluble, García Picasso & Carmen Xía) as well as a ‘Gran Cajoneada’ (The Cajon is a flamenco percussion instrument). Kids, parents and even grandparents will all be able to take part in this event.

Coinciding with the popular St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, this event will feature an amazing concert by Uphoria, a U2 tribute band as well as typical Celtic dancers.
