The countdown is on for Low Festival 2016
The chronometer from the official web site is counting down the hours, minutes and seconds to kick off the first group or artist that will commence this forthcoming Benidorm Low Festival 2016.
This year it will take place over the 29th, 30th and 31st of July when the Guillermo Amor football stadium will be transformed into a multifaceted setting where day and night parties will be held along with rest and relaxation in comfortable green areas.
For this ninth edition of Low Festival in Benidorm, not only we will there be the best bands and artists from rock, indie, pop and electronic music but also the biggest fans of this type of music. So once again, residents from Benidorm and the surrounding areas as well as holiday makers and visitors who come to the resort solely to enjoy the experience that this musical encounter offers. It is already considered elite not only at national level but also at European level.
The comfort of the stadium’s lawn area as well several swimming pools in which to cool off during those moments of intense heat, together with chill out areas where there is no shortage of shade, will add a special touch to the comfortable and casual atmosphere that characterizes this festival, which this year will celebrate its eighth anniversary.
Last year’s Low Festival 2015, in its eighth edition managed to bring together more than seven thousand people in the thirty thousand square kilometres of its huge campus. This year, we are convinced that the Low Festival 2016 in Benidorm will continue growing in quality and prestige and at the same time remain among the most important of its kind.
Suede, Hot Chip and the Peaches are some of the major acts that will once again bring value to the Low festival Benidorm 2016.
There will also be some famous Spanish bands who are becoming more popular outside of Spain such as Love of Lesbian, Vetusta Morla, who already have a huge following, as well as Second from Murcia, who album after album surprise us with their increasingly innovative and interesting materia.l
Less than a month ago, the festival organisers published on its website that there were new confirmations of groups for this latest edition. La M:O:D:A, Pablo und Destruktion, Raretraxxx, Badlands, Holy Paul, La Hora del Té and once again DJ Coco will enhance this this eighth edition for some “Lowers” who will not be left feeling indifferent following such a wide variety of acts.
We can also enjoy with the special appearances of Belle and Sebastian, Los Planetas, The Cook and 091.
Furthermore, an essential part of this new festival that will take place on the 29th, 30th and 31st in the Guillermo Amor Stadium in Benidorm will be the change in terms of opportunities that will be offered to rising Spanish bands via the competition Budweiser_emerge. This new contribution consists of selecting 30 semi-finalist bands of which only five will make it to the Grand Final.
The selection process counts on audience participation which will contribute largely to these five finalists being chosen.
Following this screening, a specialist panel of judges will decide the name of the winning band or artist who as well as passing directly to form part of the official line up will be rewarded with the recording of an EP of 4 songs and will be able to receive all royalties.
The festivals official website has kept the entry date open over a long time in order for people to apply as a judge for this event in which names such as Penny Necklance, Samu de Río, Celéstica, Jagguars and The Weels are already mentioned among candidates to be chosen as finalists.
The Guillermo Amor Football Stadium is accessible from any of our 9 Servigroup Hotels in Benidorm by local bus and also from the Servigroup Montiboli Hotel in Villajoyosa by tram (our regional railway) accessible just a few metres from the hotel.
And so, we offer you an opportunity for a summer filled with great concerts, where there is no shortage of famous names such as David Guetta, (a few days after the Low Festival), Marc Anthony, Malú and our popular Iberia Festival at the end of August fo which Servigroup Hotels will once again be the official sponsor.
Whether it’s for a concert or other, we’re waiting for you...!!
