More than 110,000 music fans are said to have attended the second Cala Mijas festival, which finished on Saturday after three days of non-stop music in the Sonora venue and on Torreón beach in La Cala de Mijas. Organisers claimed the attendance figures “surpassed” last year’s festival, and again attracted a diverse audience, of which 28 per cent were foreign. The United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and France were the countries with the greatest presence, while other music fans travelled from Madrid, Catalonia, Murcia, Valencia and various parts of Andalucía.

The weekend presented a stellar lineup of international and national artists, which included the British indie rock band, Florence And The Machine; the French electronic dance music duo, The Blaze; and the Glasgow rockers, Belle & Sebastian, among others.
