Three music festivals will take place on the Costa del Sol this summer with Metal Paradise, Andalucia Big Festival and Rock and Beer festival all announcing big name bands.
Andalucia Big Festival will take place on Sacaba beach on September 8, 9 and 10.
The project is divided into three aspects: an international forum for professionals in the music sector, a series of concerts throughout Andalucian provinces and the music festival in Malaga.
Juan Marín, Minister of Tourism said: “This will give international projection to the Andalucian brand and will involve the eight provinces. The festival will give the province national and international prestige”.
The festival will run alongside a new initiative called Andalucia Live, with a programme of concerts that will take place in the weeks prior to the festival in different Andalucian provinces.
Tickets for the music festival, organised by the Junta de Andalucia and Mad Cool Festival, in collaboration with Malaga city council, go on sale at the end of April.

Tickets cost range from €40 to €90.
