You Have To Go To Gran Canaria's Free Soul Festival On The Beach

The Maspalomas Costa Canaria Soul Festival The Maspalomas Costa Canaria Soul Festival www.photosgrancanaria.com

The free II Maspalomas Costa Canaria Soul Festival is on San Agustín beach between 29 and 3 July 2016.

The world's best soul musicians performing on the beach during a three-day free festival in the sunshine. Yes, the Gran Canaria soul festival is as good as it sounds. Last year's inaugural event attracted 10,000 people and we expect this year to be even bigger. 

Porretta Soul on the beach

The Maspalomas Costa Canaria Soul Festival features the same acts as the famous Porretta Soul festival held in Bologna, Italy very year. Started in 1988, Porretta Soul is now one of the largest soul music events worldwide and the European showcase of the Memphis Sound. Porretta is associated with the Stax Museum of American Soul Music in Memphis and the Center For Southern Folklore in Memphis.

Lex says: We love the fact that Porretta was started by a music fan who just wanted great, free music in his town, just like Agaete's Bioagaete Festival

Here are the acts at Porretta this year. The Gran Canaria lineup should be exactly the same only with a few local bands playing too.

    Las Canteras beach is a no-take reserve so there are loads of fish, especially where Luis Morote street meets the sand.
