Even if you have never visited Marbella, there’s a good chance that you will know something about the Starlite Festival, which has become one of the continent’s major cultural events of reference in recent times. And as reported by SUR in English and elsewhere, the 2022 edition is fast approaching, set to be held from 10th June to 4th September.
There will be plenty to look forward to, with various big names set to perform over the three months, including the likes of Jason Derulo, Jessie J, Nile Rodgers and Chic, Diana Krall, and Andrea Bocelli.
What do you need to know about the Starlite Festival?
The Starlite Festival – or the Starlite Catalana Occidente festival, to give its full name – is already nine editions old, and has established a reputation as one of Europe’s premier boutique festivals.
Although the festival has certainly had plenty to offer to music fans down the years – such stars as Enrique Iglesias, Lenny Kravitz, Lionel Richie, Anastacia, and Pet Shop Boys having all thrilled the Marbella crowds on unforgettable evenings – the event is just as much of a magnet for those seeking the best in broader culture and gastronomy.
And this year’s running looks set to be as special as ever, amid predictions that more than 350,000 people will attend, significantly up on the 281,427 visitors who were drawn to the most recent, 2019 edition of the event. The 227 million euros that it is anticipated will be generated by the 2022 festival would also be a 24% rise on what was recorded three years ago.
