NEXT year’s Juegas Rock festival will be staged in Adra, Mayor Manuel Cortes has announced.
Describing the festival as “one of the events with the greatest tourism, social and economic impact” for the municipality, Cortes said his government team had worked hard to ensure Adra would be the Juegas Rock venue once again.
The Mayor expressed his satisfaction at the positive results of “intense negotiations”, commenting, “We have made it possible that out town will yet another year be the venue for this important festival which brings together thousands of people in a privileged enclave on our coast.”
He maintained it was “excellent news” for all local residents due to the “enormous projection of our town at national and international level”, and for the benefits for tourism and the local economy, saying it would create hundreds of direct and indirect jobs.
Cortes insisted Adra offers the ideal conditions for hosting festivals of this kind thanks to the “ideal location and quality services”, and said his administration supports attracting and organising big events to benefit all local society and to serve as “a showcase for all our town offers.”
The Mayor added that he would shortly be able to confirm the exact dates of what will be the eighth edition of the festival.
