Councillor Juan Carlos Gonzalez said event organisers had ‘failed to obtain the proper authorisation’ and as a result the festival, set for the end of May, will be ‘cancelled’.
However Malaga Rocks Mijas organisers refute the statement, claiming they have done everything the Town Hall asked.
“The town hall have made a huge error,” said Carl Wileman, co-founder of Mijas Rocks Malaga.
“We have attended several meetings with the deputy mayor and chief of police.”
Malaga Rocks Mijas are now soliciting the help of lawyers to get the show back on the road.
