Costa del Folk

La Cultura Costa del Folk

MUSIC fans on the Costa del Sol will have the opportunity to enjoy the first ever English folk music festival in March.

Costa del Folk will feature some of the biggest names on the British folk scene, including the iconic Fairport Convention.

The festival will be compered by Mike Harding, one of the best known folk music promoters, having hosted the BBC Folk programme for almost 20 years.

“A Folk Festival without rain is just too good to be true!” he said. “I am delighted to be involved.”

The line-up at the five day festival at the Hotel Alay in Benalmadena from March 14 – 19 will also include more than 20 of the top names in British folk music including Show of Hands, The Demon Barbers and Steamchicken.


  1. Do you know how to buy tickets for these concerts? The link provided by Madeline in the previous comment is not particularly useful as you can only purchase the full package.

  2. They are certainly offering a “locals” ticket – i.e without accommodation.

    I spoke to Gerry Flynn on my radio show about three weeks ago and he mentioned it then.
