Weekend Beach Festival
Summer comes around and the festival season springs into action. Our beautiful corner of Andalucia has no shortage of great music events – the biggest of the lot, though, is undoubtedly Weekend Beach Festival.
What is Weekend Beach Festival?
An annual music festival held at the beginning of July beside the beach in Torre del Mar (about 45 minutes from central Malaga). Two stages welcome crowds from all over Spain with a variety of music. This is what makes Weekend Beach special: music of all genres for all ages. Expect to see national and international names over 4 days. Past international highlights have been The Offspring, David Guetta, The Prodigy and Alpha Blondy. In 2019 the big crowd draw are Black Eyed Peas.
Where is Weekend Beach Festival?
Torre del Mar is a coastal town with shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, beach clubs and clubs. The town is easily walkable if you want to venture out from the festival park, campsite and beach area. Torre del Mar has a long, very lovely boulevard which goes from the small fishing village, La Caleta, in the east, to the edge of Torre del Mar to the west. This main promenade is called Paseo Maritimo de Poniente.
The festival ground is beside the beach to the west of the edge of the town. Find the lighthouse on Paseo Maritimo de Poniente; with it behind you and the sea in front, walk right until the boulevard ends and you’ll see the festival area. Simple!
