This summer, Málaga has a packed agenda of music festivals to enjoy with a total of 17 events spread throughout the province between the months of June and August
In terms of significance, Puro Latino is the largest music festival not only on the Costa del Sol but also in the various locations where it takes place. Last year, it was a real success, surpassing the figures of previous years. Its lineup is impressive, featuring rising artists such as Quevedo, Myke Towers, Morad, Eladio Carrión.
It’s a weekend event taking place on the 21st and 22nd of July, filled with stars, music, and, above all, a great party atmosphere. Currently, ticket prices range around £90 for general admission and £200 for VIP.
Elrow, one of the world’s biggest electronic music festivals, will be in Málaga on the 19th of August. The artists haven’t been confirmed yet, but last year it was an absolute success, and the same is expected for this year. The venue and exact location are yet to be announced. Prices range from £55 to £80.
The first one starts this very weekend at the municipal auditorium in Málaga (pictured left) on the 26th and 27th of May, the Oh, See! Málaga. Most of the tickets are already sold out, with only a few remaining at around £55 and premium tickets costing around £90. It has a dedicated space for children without the need for additional payment, so even the little ones can enjoy the festival with their parents.
The Alameda Festival, taking place from the 2nd to the 3rd of June in Alameda, is an event featuring urban and techno music artists. Its lineup includes big names such as Ayax y Prok, Fernandocosta, Kaze, and the legendary group SFDK. Tickets are around £50.
On the 24th of June, the Marenostrum Fuengirola will host one of the world’s biggest electronic music festivals, the Ultra Beach. It’s a day of celebration with internationally renowned artists, with DJ Martin Garrix as the main star. Prices range between £60 and £70, but many tickets are already sold out, so if you want to go, you need to hurry to get yours. On the 17th of the same month, the Cosquin Rock will also take place, featuring groups like Marea or La Renga.
Starlite Marbella, as usual, offers us a great number of musical events with internationally recognized artists. Among the highlights this year are Juan Magan, Pablo López, Melendi, India Martínez, and many more singers. Practically, every summer day has an event, so you can check their complete lineup on their website. Ticket prices range from £40 to £230.
On the same date, we find two very similar festivals, the Weekend Beach Festival and the Reggaeton Beach Festival, with the former taking place from the 5th to the 8th of July and the latter on the 8th and 9th of the same month. The Weekend prioritizes Spanish musicians (with exceptions like Maluma), and you can enjoy numerous artists over the course of the four days. At the Reggaeton Beach Festival, you have recognized names like Ozuna, Jhay Cortez, and Young Miko.
Both festivals have approximately the same prices, ranging between £80 and £90, but it’s important to note that the number of days is different.
Also in July, from the 6th to the 8th and from the 21st to the 22nd, the Brisa Festival takes place, featuring more indie/pop music. This year, it includes artists like Chambao, Macaco, or La habitación roja. The tickets cost around £25 per day for the simplest tariff. On the 29th, the Locos por la Música event will be held in Fuengirola, a festival showcasing the best national rock music with names like No me pises que llevo chanclas, M Clan, or La Guardia.
