Upcoming Event: Mijas Rocks - Málaga Rock Festival

May in Spain sees many events.  Things are heating up, and it's not just mercury rising. The celebrations of Santa Cruz - or the Crosses of May - and the fragrant patio festival in Córdoba.  Take in the San Isidro celebrations in Madrid.  In fact -  it's impossible to visit Spain in May without tripping over the hem of a flamenco frock or hearing the lonely rasgueado strum of a guitar.

What's the event?

It's brand new and promises to be exciting stuff.  This festival has it all, location, big-name bands, and the sunshine of course - almost guaranteed!  Think Glastonbury minus the mud.  Mijas Rocks -  Malaga Rock Festival - bringing a sunny sound of rock and indie music to the Costa on the 29th and 30th of May, this year. So forget Rock the Casbah, it's time to Rock the Costa!
