Benidorm hotels to benefit from summer festival

The hotels in Benidorm are sure to benefit from the latest edition of the Low Cost festival which will be held in the town between the 21 and 23 July this summer. The singer Mika is the latest addition to the list of over 50 acts that will participate in the festival. This will be Mika’s only concert in Spain this year and during the Low Cost festival he will sing songs from his latest album ‘The Boy Who Knew Too Much’ as well as his successful previous one ‘Life in Cartoon Motion’.

Over 50 national and international acts which will perform over three days of concerts on three different stages during the Benidorm festival. Some of the bands who are participating are, among others, Mando Diao, Klaxons, Crystal Castles, Vetusta Morla, Cut Copy, Ok Go, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Steve Aoki, Love of Lesbian, Eli Paperboy Reed y Fangoria.

The musical event aims to continue the urban spirit which was born in Benidorm the second time the festival was held in 2010. This year there will be a change of location and the event will move to the Benidorm municipal sports area in the Playa de Levante allowing the organisers to expand the capacity from the 20,000 attendees last year to about 60,000 this time. The new site chosen for the festival has many green areas in addition to catering establishments and shops. It is estimated that more than 20,000 people will attend the musical event on each of the three days which means the festival has now become one of the five largest in Spain.

Tickets to attend the three day festival are on sale through TicketMaster and other distribution channels at the price of €60 for the three days. Tickets can also be purchased for each day of the Low Cost at €30 for the Thursday, €40 for the Friday and €40 for Saturday. It is estimated that the Low Cost festival will generate around 80,000 overnight stays for the hotels in Benidorm over the three days of the event which will be a welcome source of additional revenue to the hotels in the city.
