Fuengirola's summer music festival is to get a significant upgrade next year. On Monday, organisers of Marenostrum were in Madrid's prestigious Teatro Real to launch their plans for 2020, which include 30 concerts, seven festivals and an increase in capacity at the Sohail Castle venue to 18,000.
Started under five years ago with modest ambitions, the Marenostrum event has been growing each year and this summer featured headline performances by Bob Dylan and Jennier López as part of the 21-concert schedule.
So far the biggest name confirmed for next year is Lenny Kravitz and the main innovation will be the celebration of seven themed music festivals, including rock, indie, electronic, dance and reggaeton/trap.
To achieve this some existing festivals from other locations will join the Maremagnum calendar, such as Cosquin Rock, currently celebrated only in Latin America.
Mayor of Fuengirola, Ana Mula was in Madrid for the launch.
