Tom Jones plays the Starlite festival in Marbella

Monday 2nd August 2016 saw Tom Jones take to the stage, as one of the many top flight entertainers appearing during the 6 week long Starlite festival in Marbella.Starlite festival marbella

The Starlite festival takes place in a private setting at the Marbella Auditorium, close to the exclusive properties in Sierra Blanca on the site of an old quarry set into the side of the dramatic La Concha mountain overlooking Marbella.  You would be hard pressed to recognise this is not a fulltime venue such is the high quality of the site.

The venue improves year on year and is a crossover of:

  • entertainment and concert venue
  • epic outdoor disco
  • fashion show
  • open air cinema
  • gourmet dining and drinking location
  • boutique shopping and luxury goods show

Guests are met at the ample parking areas and shuttled up to the venue in executive air conditioned coaches which run non-stop.  On arrival at the venue you enter into the bowl, passing a Ford Car show this year with a nice yellow Mustang as a centrepiece.  You then enter the main after show area, which is the main hub pre and post concerts.  Here the stage acts and DJ’s keep the crowds entertained.  There is a huge dance floor, numerous fast food places and bars and VIP dining and drinking areas located around this bowl area.Tom Jones at the Starlite festival

Under the seating for the main concert stage there are numerous stands selling great food and drinks and showcasing quality brands.

I digress, back to Tom Jones, who had the crowd on their feet, and the girls waving their knickers with a mixture of his greatest hits, numerous gospel songs and recounting his stories from his past days in Vegas with Elvis.  His big hits Sex Bomb, It’s Not Unusual and Delila really fired up the concert and got the crowds dancing.

A great night’s entertainment from a top entertainer.  We left about 2:00 am and the crowds were still coming in to enjoy the disco and bars.

Highly recommended! This years’ Starlite festival runs until 26th August.
