Cudeca Goldies to host two-night live music festival in Benalmádena

  • The MusicStory festival will present more than 20 of the most celebrated bands and solo artists on the Costa del Sol

The Cudeca Goldies have come up with another adventurous event to raise awareness of the cancer charity’s twenty-fifth anniversary celebrations. Set to take place over two days, the Goldies will host a grand musical extravaganza in the Benalmádena auditorium in La Paloma park on 23 and 24 September.

The MusicStory festival will present two nights of music in a festival that will involve more than 20 local bands and solo artists.

The festival will be a journey through musical history and will present rock and roll, funk, disco, soul and rock music.

Cudeca will offer a free bus service to and from the concerts, with pick-up and drop-off points in Marbella, Calahonda, La Cala de Mijas and Fuengriola.

The lineup of artists on the first night will include the Memphis Trio, Wayne Ward, The Stolen Gnomes, One Wish Steve and Cath John.

Sunday night’s instalment will present Deborah Dee, Banana Studios, Stereo 80s, Mr Maph and Magnet Man. There will also be a Queen tribute show as a grand finale.

Carlos White, fundraiser for Cudeca, showered praise on the Goldies, claiming that this was one of the biggest events they had ever attempted.

“Where else on the coast can you experience a music festival with more than 20 bands performing hits from the 50s to present day? This is a massive event and the Goldies have done another great job,” Carlos told SUR in English.

The Goldies are pulling out all the stops to make the weekend a success and they will also launch a Christmas car raffle.

“1,200 people can fit into the auditorium and we aim to get it three quarters full, but it would be wonderful if we were to fill it,” Carlos explained.

Tickets, which cost 10 euros, can be purchased from any of the Rubens Exchange offices, or from the Cudeca website www.cudeca.org.
