THERE will be five different nights of music at the Port Adriano Music Festival this year which runs from the end of July through August.
First band to appear on July 31 will be the Dire Straits Experience put together by original band saxophonist Chris White and this will be there only appearance in Spain before setting off on a cross Europe tour.
After a two-decade break, Chris White got together with singer and lead guitarist Terence Reis who it is claimed plays and sounds just like Mark Knopfler and they put together a group of eight professional musicians, five of whom always accompany them on tour.
Tickets for this event cost from €30 to €60.
Then on August 2, it’s time for Celebration as Port Adriano welcomes Kool & the Gang led by Robert Bell as they supply an inexhaustible evening of funk, soul and disco hits that they created in the 70s and 80s.
This too will be their only Spanish date this year but many will remember the electric performance they gave in Marbella in 2018 with four of the original members still able to Get Down On It.
So, if you fancy some Jungle Boogie, tickets cost from €30 to €200 and can be obtained via the festival website https://portadriano.janto.es.
