Glastonbury, V Festival, T in the Park, Leeds and Reading Festival, I think you get the idea… Festivals have come an awful long way since way back in the 1960s, and nowadays music festivals seem to be at the top of everyone’s bucket list no matter what your age is. But if you don’t want to take the risk with the good old English weather, festivals abroad are not only a great way to guarantee the sunshine, but they also offer a fantastic line-up.
When Does it Take Place?
Don’t Miss Out – Gibraltars Music Festival is the place to be this year.
The festival takes place on the 5th and 6th September 2015 and will be held at the Victoria Stadium.
How Do I Get to Gibraltar?
With only a short flying time of 2 hours 50 minutes you could be dancing your socks off in no time. And even better, you can fly directly into Gibraltar from the UK. Alternatively, you could fly into Costa del Sol which is around 1 hour 30 minutes from Gibraltar by road transfer, but this will depend on the traffic. They are also return coach tickets available to pre-book from 11 locations in Spain, so getting to Gibraltar isn’t a problem.
Where is the Stadium?
The Victoria Stadium is close to Gibraltar Airport and around 600 metres from the border of Spain.
A fantastic weekend of music has been lined up for this year’s event with music to suit all ages and tastes.
Duran Duran, Paloma Faith, Estopa, Tom Odell, The Feeling, Lawson, Union J, Third World, Hudson Taylor, Guy Valarino, Kristian Vinales – DJ set , This Side Up, Jeremy Perez and Tom Stott, and Karma 13.
Kings of Leon, Madness, Kaiser Chiefs, James Bay, Ella Henderson, Rae Morris, Dub Colossus, Reach, Headwires, Paddy Taylor, Dead City Radio, Strange Brew, Tim Garcia, and FT Afterhours.
What else does Gibraltar have to offer?
Situated at the most Southern tip of Spain, Gibraltar is well worth a visit. Of course, Gibraltar’s most famous habitants are its Barbary Apes that reside on the famous Rock, but this unique place has so much more on offer. In fact, Gibraltar is British territory so you can expect to see signs of old England dotted around its colourful landscape such as old style red phone boxes. If you love shopping you won’t be disappointed here, Gibraltar is a VAT free haven, giving you a great opportunity to pick up some real bargains. Do you love a bit of history? Then we suggest that you visit the 1779 siege tunnels dug by the British.
So, if you like the sound of the Gibraltar music festival, you could always combine the event with a holiday in the Costa del Sol.
