Torremolinos is getting ready for the second biggest LGBT festival of the summer season, the Wonder Gay Festival, a week of themed parties and musical events that will take place at different venues in the town centre and on the beaches of El Bajondillo.
Following the success of Torremolinos Pride last month - which was attended by more than 40,000 people - the Wonder Gay Festival will take place from Monday 23 until Sunday 29 July.
The festival presents a series of activities like pool and beach parties with top DJs, comedy drag shows, concerts and leisure activities. The event is expected to attract people from all over Andalucía.
Parties are held in the most popular gay-friendly bars, including Eden, where many of the daytime parties will take place on the bar's private beach area.
The Hotel Ritual - the town's first gay hotel - will also host parties on its roof-top pool terrace, while many of the venues in La Nogalera will also participate in the fun.
The festival gets go ing at the Sala Parthenon at midnight on Monday 23 July, with an opening show performed by renowned drag queen, La Prohibida. Another highlight of the festival is the performance by the outrageous comedy drag, Malote, which will take place in the Sala Centuryon on Friday 27 July.
The closing party will be held in the Aqua Emporio Club in La Nogalera on Sunday 29 July.
Tickets for the individual parties and shows cost between ten and 25 euros, or a weekend pass - which entitles the holder access to Friday, Saturday and Sundays events - is available for 50 euros.
