Spread over three sun-soaked days, this festival promises a melting pot of musical talents, from the iconic Arcade Fire and The Strokes to the groundbreaking Moderat and The Blaze and the soulful Amaia and Florence + The Machine. From August 31st to September 2nd, Cala Mijas will be the place to be.

DAY 1: A Sonic Extravaganza

As the sun sets on Thursday, August 31st, the stage will be set for a sonic spectacle featuring indie rock legends Arcade Fire. If you’re into genre-blurring, then brace yourself for Foals’ electrifying set, guaranteed to leave you awe-inspired. For those craving an unfiltered energy rush, the punk rock rebels, IDLES, are ready to deliver a performance that won’t hold any punches. And if you’re into exploring the fusion of electronic and experimental sounds, Moderat is bound to cast a spell. With the iconic voice of Siouxsie and the Banshees, plus the soulful enchantment of Amaia, day one’s lineup is a compelling mix of sounds and styles.

DAY 2: Keeping the Momentum Alive

But rest assured the fun doesn’t stop there. September 1st promises to keep the musical momentum going strong. Indie rock’s prodigal children, The Strokes, are back to reclaim their spotlight, while M83 will wash over the audience with their signature soundscapes. Electronic pioneers, Underworld, are ready to teleport you to another dimension, and Acid Arab (live) will take you on an electrifying journey. Punk enthusiasts can brace themselves for the fiery performance from Amyl & The Sniffers. Meanwhile, Lori Meyers and Cariño will bring an uplifting Spanish indie-pop vibe, and Palms Trax will weave a genre-blending narrative that’ll keep you grooving all night long.

Make sure to check out the mesmerizing sets by Ouri and Call Super at the stage that never sleeps, La Caleta, surrounded by trees, lights, and good vibes.

DAY 3: The Grand Finale

And then comes the grand finale on September 2nd, where the festival’s curtain call will be nothing short of breathtaking. Prepare to be captivated by the hauntingly powerful performance of Florence + The Machine, while Arca’s electronic experimentation is sure to push boundaries, it always does. Indie darlings Belle & Sebastian will whisk you away on a nostalgia trip, and The Blaze will transform the stage into a captivating electronic-cinematic realm. The soulful folk tunes of José González will touch your heart, and Metronomy will keep the energy alive with an infectious dance set.

We also recommend catching artists like Judeline and Baiuca at the Sunset stage and Helena Hauff at La Caleta stage to bid a fond farewell to the festival.

With summer’s final curtain call, Cala Mijas beckons you to partake in this celebration. Imagine the warmth of the sun on your skin, the sand between your toes, and the music coursing through your veins – it’s an experience that’ll linger long after the last note fades away.

So, what are you waiting for? Pack your sunscreen, grab your sunglasses, and planning your trip.
