Starlite Festival firms reported for 'building' in quarry auditorium
  • The prosecutors stated that organisers have put in permanent walls and flooring in the outdoor Nagüeles venue

Environmental prosecutors have reported two companies behind Marbella’s prestigious Starlite summer music festival. They say organisers have put in permanent walls and flooring in the outdoor Nagüeles venue used as an auditorium for its concerts by famous artists.

The former quarry is in a protected rural area and a condition of the original licence with Marbella council was that only temporary structures could be installed there for each summer season.

The council has said that it has asked Starlite to remove the structures as a condition of extending its licence, which expired last year, for this season.

Starlite did not comment on the prosecutors’ decision to report them.
