The Costa del Sol is very popular for many reasons, one of them being undoubtedly the music festivals that take place every year during the summer months.
With a mild and benevolent climate, the sea breeze, some truly impressive stages and a line-up full of artists, the Costa del Sol also has all the necessary infrastructure, accommodation and hotels and with Malaga international airport just a few kilometres away.
