The Gibraltar Music Festival is not the only event in or around Gibraltar pulling in the big music names. The Starlite Marbella music festival is the biggest music and entertainment event in Andalucia, lasting for a month from 22-Jul to 22-Aug. Almost every day through-out there’s a new name playing at the Cantera de Nagüeles, in Marbella (an open-air amphitheatre surrounded by nature). The concert stage is located in-between 60 metre high rock walls creating a unique and memorable setting. The festival is wanting to be as much a social as music event, catering for several age groups and tastes – and was last year visited by many movie, sports and other music celebrities. It is still a very young music festival but is taking leaps every year – both in terms of popularity and the big music names that are saying yes to their invitation. The four times consecutive GRAMMY Award winner, and multi-instrumentalist mega star, Lenny Kravitz is kicking off this year’s festival on the 22nd July. Find tickets here.
