The Marbella Arena venue, located the town's old bullring in Puerto Banús, will host for the first time the Fiesta Marbella, a five-day cycle between the 7 and 11 of August bringing some of the biggest names in music to perform in Spain for the very first time. The lineup includes UK pop icons, Blue and Chesney Hawkes, British DJ Pete Tong and the 'queen of Arab pop', Nancy Ajram, among others.

Organised by Bill Blenkarn and Steve Durham, serious music promoters with a stellar record, this promises to be an epic celebration of global music and talent. The event will support the local charities – Hogar Betania, Collective Calling, Rotary Club Puerto Banús and Triple A. The charities will be showcased before the music begins each night.

Marbella Fiesta kicks off on 7 August with the show Arena of Dreams, featuring Centreforce 883 and Clockwork Orange, a night of vibrant house and disco music with a line-up of DJs and musicians from the UK.
