Concerts on the Costa del Sol

Over the last few years, the Costa del Sol has made something of a name for itself in music. And this year is no exception. Several famous international and Spanish names have already confirmed their presence at resorts on the Costa del Sol this year. If you’re planning a golf break in Marbella and fancy combining it with some great music, check out our round-up of the best concerts on the Costa del Sol in 2019.

Legendary Dylan

One of the biggest names in music and a legend in his own right visits this spring. Bob Dylan performs at Marenostrum Music Castle Park, located in Fuengirola Castle at what is likely to be one of the biggest concerts on the Costa del Sol. Taking place on 4 May, the concert will visit Dylan’s biggest hits and probably have a literary air since the singer songwriter won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016. It’s 20 years since Dylan last visited the Costa del Sol.

Did you know? Rio Real Golf is just a short drive from Fuengirola so why not stay at Rio Real Hotel when you come to the Bob Dylan concert? 

The Jacksons

Michael Jackson included Marbella in his Bad Tour back in 1988 at one of the most memorable concerts on the Costa del Sol ever. Some 31 years later, his siblings return to pay him and themselves homage with hits from the Jackson 5. Jermaine, Tito, Jackie and Marlon perform at Puente Romano Tennis Club on 8 August.

Rod Stewart

Another legendary rock star also visits the Costa del Sol this year. Rod Stewart plays at the Marenostrum Music Castle Park in Fuengirola on 3 July. Fans of the Scottish singer can expect a repertoire of his greatest hits.


One of the biggest names in Latino music comes to Marbella in July as part of the Starlite Festival. Maluma, multi-award winning and famous for hits such as Obsession and Mala Mía, plays on 13 July on the Starlite stage with its amazing location at the foot of the Sierra Blanca mountains.

Also confirmed at the Starlite Festival 2019 are Roger Hodgson, Diana Krall, Ketama, The Beach Boys, Malú, David Bisbal, Tomatito…

Did you know? Rio Real Golf course has panoramic views of the Marbella mountains as well as the Mediterranean. Enjoy yours when you play a round of golf. 

West Side Story

The world-famous musical comes to the Cervantes Theatre in Malaga in July and runs for nearly three weeks. Songs are in Spanish, but with original music and choreography so it’ll all be very familiar.

John Williams sound tracks

Film buffs and music lovers have a date at the Congress Centre in Malaga on 24 March at one of the best concerts on the Costa del Sol this spring. The Film Symphony Orchestra pays tribute to the great composer of film sound tracks, John Williams. Expect to hear favourites from Star Wars, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park and many more.

Andalucia`s Gateway

It always makes a good pub quiz question. What is the geographical centre of Andalucía? Historically, and semi-officially, Antequera (near the northern border of Málaga province) is considered to hold that honour – at least for tourist brochure purposes. However, earlier this year a report by the National Centre for Geographical Information argued that the exact centre is in the small Córdoba municipality of Monturque. Other key cities in the region have their own claims to fame: Sevilla, the official capital; Cádiz, the oldest city in the western world; Málaga, the Andalucian capital of international tourism… 


Golf and Tennis… Marbella’s Sporting Haven

When it comes to golfMarbella is recognised as Spain’s premier destination.

Several of the courses have hosted European Tour events (as well as the World Cup in 1973 and 1989) while others such as Río Real are regular venues for premier national and international amateur tournaments. The same applies to tennis
