The local music scene is also well represented with 3 groups from Andalucía: The Sun Rockets (Almería), The Wild Shakers (Málaga/Córdoba) and Ric’ & The Rocks (Málaga).

As well as the fantastic line up of bands, there will also be 6 of the best DJ’s from Rockabilly and American roots scene: DJ Mark Lamborn (London), DJ Crackzorla (Barcelona), DJ Bop-Hop (Sevilla), DJ Deborah DevoBot (Málaga), DJ David Mockingbird (Cádiz) and DJ Tall Mike (Marbella).

On Saturday the 23rd November at 4:00pm, Buddy Holly fans will be treated to a great tribute act by ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ winner, Buddy Walker. This will take place on the terrace of the Oasis Restaurant and is free for all hotel guests and anyone with a weekend pass to the Festival.

Each and every one of these artists will be delighting spectators with their very own interpretations of authentic and genuine Rockabilly and music with American roots.

    Very loud music!! This is not a theatre jazz event. It is a Rock ‘n Roll Dance Rockin’ blues LOUD MUSIC festival.
    ¡MÚSICA MUY FUERTE! Este no es un evento de jazz para estar sentado como en un teatro. Este es un festival de Rock ‘n Roll Rockin’ Blues para bailar con música muy fuerte.
