Costa Levante News - - CB LIVE -

By Barry Wright NOW that we are into the new year and with Three Kings night just one sleep away it’s time to have a look at some of the fes­ti­vals that are tak­ing place in Spain in the com­ing 12 months.

This is with a view to ask­ing Balthasar, Mel­chior and Gas­par for tick­ets as a present.

The first of these is the fifth Fuz­zville garage rock and punk fes­ti­val at the Magic Robin Hood Re­sort in Benidorm on March 22-24.

The event is be­ing head­lined by the myth­i­cal At­lanta punks Car­bonas, who will be ably backed by fel­low At­lantans, Bar­reracu­das, The Queers and many more.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion avail­able from fuz­zville.es.

Next up is Pri­mav­era Sound which takes place at the Parc del Fòrum in Barcelona from May 30-June 1.

This eclec­tic fes­ti­val an­nu­ally at­tracts some of the big­gest mu­sic mak­ers on the scene, plus, more im­por­tantly, some of the new movers and shakers and cult acts that it is dif­fi­cult to find per­form­ing else­where.

This year’s event is also ground-break­ing as the line-up is equally split be­tween male and fe­male artists.

Full de­tails are avail­able from www.pri­mav­era­sound.es.

Next up we have the Down­load Fes­ti­val, an event that an­nu­ally gets lovers of any­thing heavy chomp­ing at the bit.

The event takes place at La Caja Mág­ica in Madrid on June 28-30 and is be­ing head­lined by Scor­pi­ons, Slip­knot and Tool.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion can be ob­tained from www.down­load­fes­ti­val.es. is

A lit­tle fur­ther away, but no less re­ward­ing is the Músi­cos en la Nat­u­raleza Fes­ti­val. This one-day event, si­t­u­ated in the beau­ti­ful Sierra de Gre­dos moun­tain range to the east of Madrid, is be­ing head­lined by none other than Rod Ste­wart. More in­for­ma­tion and tick­ets are avail­able from www.mu­si­cosen­lanat­u­raleza.net.

One of the coun­try’s big­gest up­com­ing fes­ti­vals Mad Cool, con­tin­ues to go from strength to strength and the 2019 edi­tion ap­pears to be no ex­cep­tion.

The fes­ti­val takes place at the Es­pa­cio Mad Cool in Valde­be­bas, Madrid from July 11- 13 and fea­tures the likes of The Cure, The Na­tional, Bon Iver, Vam­pire Week­end, Smash­ing Pump­kins and many more.

Full in­for­ma­tion can be ob­tained from www.mad­coolfes­ti­val.es.

The 25th edi­tion of the Benicàs­sim fes­ti­val takes place in the town af­ter which it is named on July 18-21. To date not many acts have been an­nounced, how­ever fes­ti­val go­ers can be as­sured that those that have, Lana del Rey and The 1975 will be backed by a more than able cast.

Fur­ther de­tails from fiber­fib.com.

Next up we have one of the Costa Blanca’s big­gest mu­si­cal at­trac­tions of the year. This be­ing Benidorm’s Low Fes­ti­val which takes place on July 26-28 and fea­tures head­line acts such as New Or­der, Foals and Bastille, with many more acts yet to be an­nounced. Tick­ets and more in­for­ma­tion are avail­able through lowfes­ti­val.es.

Last but not least we have the Leyen­das del Rock (leg­ends of rock) fes­ti­val which takes place in Vil­lena on Au­gust 7-10.

Although only one of the three head­line acts, Air­bourne, has been an­nounced there is cur­rently a strong un­der­card that boasts the likes of Dee Snider, Rose Tat­too and Cra­dle of Filth. With many more bands yet to be an­nounced, the fes­ti­val is set to be­come a heavy rock fans dream out­ing.

Fur­ther de­tails can be found at www.leyen­das­del­rock­fes­ti­val.com.

These are just a few of the events that take place through­out the coun­try ev­ery year.

When de­tails of the larger fes­ti­vals are re­leased they will be in­cluded in the Big Gig Guide.

Happy days.
