A series of rock, pop and flamenco concerts, along with exhibitions and children's activities, will be held in Torremolinos between Friday 24 September and Sunday 3 October as part of the town's Feria de San Miguel celebrations. This year's annual fair will be scaled down to comply with the current health and safety measures. Although the traditional Romería pilgrimage usually held prior to the fair will not take place again this year, the decorated caravans and floats will be on display in the centre of Torremolinos. The town hall will also install audio-visual panels showing photographs and videos of previous ferias along the route the Romería normally takes.

The children's fairground attractions will operate from Tuesday 28 September to Sunday 3 October (Children's Day), when the price of all rides will be reduced.

Various performances and events will take place in the La Caseta Infantil, Aguas de Torremolinos and Tercera Edad, the only three casetas open during the fair.

The main concerts will take place in municipal auditorium and will feature performances by La Trinidad (29 September), Suzette and Fuel Fandango (30 September) and Ziryab and El Canijo de Jerez (2 October).

The day feria will take place in the centre of the town between 1pm and 6pm. Artistes lined up to perform during the daytime celebrations include the Kalima Orchestra and the Alboreá Orchestra (Plaza da la Unión Europea), and The Money Makers, Meskalina and Mister Propper (Plaza La Nogalera).

All concerts are free and Covid-19 protocol will be enforced.
