The Blues at Moonlight festival brings the best of rockabilly, country and blues to Benalmádena

The Councilor for Youth, María Isabel Ruiz; and the organizer of the festival, Miguel Corchón, presented this morning the new edition of the Blues at Moonlight festival which, after a forced hiatus in 2020 due to the pandemic, will return from November 25 to 28 at the Sunset Beach hotel.

“This festival has already acquired a notable relevance not only in Benalmádena, but also internationally, as evidenced by its repercussion in the media in other countries,” the councilor highlighted.

Ruiz also thanked “the bet that Miguel Corchón makes for Benalmádena, organizing this festival in the difficult times that we continue to live as a result of the pandemic.”

“This 2021 we celebrate the 13th edition of the festival, dedicated to North American roots music, mainly rockabilly, although it encompasses other styles such as country, rock & rolland blues,” explained the promoter.

This year’s edition will be a little smaller in terms of number of bands, with 13 groups, Corchón explained, “to adapt to the new situation, but we have already closed the schedule for 2022, and next year we will schedule around 20 bands again,” he said.

Half of the bandsthat make up the poster are national, and the others come from countries such as England or France.

“This year we will have Jake Calypso and His Red Hot, from France, regulars of the festival who have just released a new album,” said Corchón.

In addition,this year the festival has released its own record label, El Dandy Records, whose first reference will be by Jake Calypso, who will present it at the festival.

“We will also have the Barcelona trio The Starways, and the Sun Rockets from Almeria with their original line-up: semi-drums and voice, double bass and guitar,” explained the festival promoter.
