The 12th Ruta del Rock (Rock Route) this year features more than 40 live performances in various restaurants and bars in Torremolinos. The event will be held on the weekends of February 9 to 11 and 16 to 18.

The venues are located in the areas of Playamar, Los Álamos, Centro and La Carihuela and the concertsare on Fridays and Saturdays from 7pm to 11pm and on Sundays from 5pm to 9pm.

The event was launched by the Councillor for Events, José Manuel Ruiz Rivas, who said that, “we are very happy to have changed the date. We are moving from May to February, a month in which commercial activity needs a boost, and I think that doing the Ruta del Rock on this date helps to give these establishments a bit more life”.

The main objective of this event (apart of course, from providing great entertainment!), is to help the more than 40 participating businesses increase their profits and clientele during the days of concerts.

The councillor encouraged residents and visitors to enjoy this event which, he said, “will be all over the municipality and will fill the different neighbourhoods of Torremolinos with light and colour”.
