From Starlite 2015
This year´s Starlite Festival 2015 in Marbella will be held between July 22nd and August 22nd at La Cantera de Marbella, Carretera Istán.
La Cantera de Marbella is a quarry holding a unique open air amphitheatre surrounded by the beautiful nature that is Andalucía. Starlite brings together a complete programme of unique concerts, cinema premiers, fashion shows, art exhibitions and gastronomy from the five continents. Entrepreneurs Sandra García-Sanjuán and her husband Ignacio Maluquer consolidated the project and generated more than 270 jobs and an economic impact of 40 million euros.
This year in order to optimise the natural acoustics in the quarry, a new oval stage has been designed especially for the event. Also the organisers have signed a contract with Taxisol of Marbella to ensure taxis will drop you right at the door of the venue.
