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 every 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 similar with a few local bands playing too.

    Tip Of The Day: Arucas Old Town Is Worth A Wander

    There's more to Arucas old town than the great big church. Walk up the narrow cobbled streets behind the cathedral for great old Canarian houses and local street life, then head down narrow Calle Gourié to the High Street (Calle León y Castillo).
