The calendar of Malaga is full of cultural and traditional events. However, the best time to visit the region is during the summer when most of the festivals took place.
Entertainment wise, Malaga’s town and villages have something to contribute. Be it a music, dance or theatre festival, and these attract international performers. The Spanish film festival in Malaga was born in 1998 and since then, it has maintained its objective, to favour and promote Spanish film making.
Getting Ready to be the Cultural Capital of Europe
The festival covers feature films, as well as short films and documentaries. In fact the Costa del Sol will be the setting for the 2016 Cultural Capital of Europe for one year. Even though, the date seems far away, the town is already working on preparations for this event.
The Rocket Festival on the other hand is a three-day alternative festival of music, performance and visual arts. This is more than just a music event, however, and festival-goers can expect to indulge in an inspiring fusion of performances spanning the theatrical to live art from some of the world's most renowned graffiti artists.
There will also be themed bars, fire dancers, a kid's space, daredevil extreme sports and an outdoor circus stage featuring trapeze artists and tightrope jugglers. Non-stop beats, breaks, electro- techno, reggae and flamenco will keep dancers going all night long.
