Organisers of Torre del Mar's Weekend Beach Festival, along with deputy mayor Jesús Pérez Atencia, held a press conference on Tuesday to officially announce the line-up for this year's instalment.

Although information had been released previously about acts such as British band The Prodigy and internationally-acclaimed Malaga group, Chambao, this was the first official announcement.

The poster for the festival was also unveiled, naming 87 acts, who will perform on three stages, from Wednesday 5 until Saturday 8 July.

Event organiser, Fátima Rodríguez said, "Today we are confirming that 88 artists will perform, although we haven't released details of the last one, which we will be doing in the next few days and it's going to be the defining artist."
