The twenty-third edition of the Festival Ciudad de Fuengirola, which incorporates Marenostrum Music Castle Park, will present a calendar of live music events that will continue throughout the summer.

This weekend, Sohail Castle will be transformed in to a huge night club to host La Noche Rosa, a festival offering the nostalgic rock and pop music of the 1980s.

Some of Spain's top acts will come together for this live music extravaganza, including Javier Ojeda, frontman of Torremolinos pop sensation, Danza Invisible. The group have enjoyed a succession of chart hits since the 1980s, when they formed part of the musical movement known as La Movida Madrileña.

Others on the bill are Spanish punk band, Seguridad Social; new wave rockers, La Union; and Nacho Campillo, lead singer of celebrated pop outfit, Tam Tam Go.

There will also be a special tribute to the late Antonio Vega, founder and singer of Nacho Pop, one of the most iconic bands of the 80s Spanish pop scene.

La Noche Rosa, which takes place on Saturday, has become one of the most popular music events of the year in Fuengirola and organisers have promised that this year's festival will be more spectacular than ever before.

Tickets for the concert, which starts at 8.30pm and continues to 2am, cost between 27 and 40 euros and are available online, or from El Corte Inglés.

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
