The casetas, which are open daily from 1pm until 3am, are a haven for foodies, who can sample an array diverse gastronomic specialties and exotic drinks prepared with all the flavours and colours of far off lands.
Live music will include reggae, jazz, rock and roll, calypso and ranchero, while lovers of dance will enjoy traditional world dance performances featuring Arabic and Indian folk dance, Argentinian tango and flamenco.
The festival is one of the biggest multicultural festivals in Malaga and it attracts thousands of visitors from all over the province, many of whom dress in traditional costume, or as famous celebrities and heads of state.
