The 2018 Maspalomas Costa Canaria Soul Festival is on the 27, 28 and 29 of July. This year it's dedicated to Memphis legend Spencer Wiggins. 

Porretta Soul on the beach

The Maspalomas Costa Canaria Soul Festival features the same acts as the famous Porretta Soul festival held in Bologna, Italy every year. Started in 1988, Porretta Soul is now one of the largest soul music events worldwide and the European showcase of the Memphis Sound. Porretta is associated with the Stax Museum of American Soul Music in Memphis and the Center For Southern Folklore in Memphis.

Lex says: We love the fact that Porretta was started by a music fan who just wanted great, free music in his town, just like Agaete's Bioagaete Festival

Here are the acts at Porretta this year. The Gran Canaria lineup should be similar with a few local bands playing too.

    Aloe Vera: The Gran Canaria Cure For Sunburn

    Gran Canaria's sun is African and in the summer it fries pale northern bodies in minutes. If you want a tan, take it easy for the first couple of days until your skin has a chance to adjust.
