See and be seen. Marbella life requires a certain amount of socializing at the glitziest level. This month sees the much anticipated return of one of the most popular events on the Costa del Sol. Squeeze into that Valentino gown and get ready, it’s almost time for the Starlite Marbella Festival, 2017.
When and what is Starlite Marbella?
From July 13th until August 26th, Marbella is at its shiniest. Starlite Marbella is celebrated every summer, and has been since 2012. Starlite founders Sandra García-Sanjuán and her husband Ignacio Maluquer turned the Nagüeles quarry into a natural amphitheatre. They enlisted the architect Héctor Ruiz Velázquez who created the artistic space. So began the annual event featuring the absolute cream of entertainment, big names, music legends, and all happening underneath the stars. Forty five nights of summer fun, and an event that has seen Starlite gain the seal of Marca España for representing the values of the country as an ambassador.
