AMERICAN basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal has been booked for next summer’s Dreambeach electronic music festival staged on the beaches of Villaricos and Palomares.
The NBA star will perform as DJ Diesel.
Cuevas del Almanzora council broke the news at this week’s FITUR international travel fair in Madrid at the presentation of what will be the 8th edition of the music festival.
“I have no doubt this new edition of Dreambeach will be a success and a meeting point for thousands of young people, who come to Cuevas not just for the grand show that it is”, the mayor Antonio Fernandez Liria affirmed, but also for “our excellent climate, our magnificent beaches, our cuisine and for our  good people.”
Fernandez Liria said the festival has “taken the name of our municipality around the world and every August turns Cuevas del Almanzora into the world capital of electronic music.”
For this reason, the mayor added, “we continue supporting this prestigious festival and we are pleased to host it on our coast due to the major tourism impact it means.”
This year’s Dreambeach will run from August 5 to 9.
