Sensational Starlite Festival returns to Marbella

A summer of sophistication is what you might expect when in Marbella’s Starlite Festival. The month-long Starlite Festival is all about national and international music. It’s also about closeness to the stars – not only on the stage but also among the public and in the sky at night.

Starlite is one of the most important social and entertainment events in Europe that draws a steady flow of music-lovers to Marbella.
