Marbella has been growing in popularity as a destination to watch live music and each year world famous performers fly in to delight the crowds. Here are some highlights to look out for each year, acts and exact dates will change of course, but hopefully our list will make your research a lot easier!
Nerja Music and Dance Festival
There is an annual series of concerts and performances in June, set inside the breathtaking Nerja Caves. Nerja is an easy day trip from Marbella. If you want to find out more about this great area, check our Nerja Guide in Day Trips section.
The normally sleepy white village of Ojen, just 30 minutes from Marbella, transforms into an amazing music venue at the end of June or beginning of July as it hosts Ojeando. This long-running and popular Indie Festival showcases some of the local talents in beautiful surroundings and ticket prices are very reasonable. (Find out more)
If you want to experience this festival, we’d suggest basing yourself in Marbella and then heading up there on the bus so you don’t need to worry about parking or driving home after a fun day! Check out our Marbella vacation rentals.
