Arenal Sound is a Spanish music festival which features a blend of indie bands, hip-hop acts and big name DJs. The music is a major draw, but the setting is just as important. Taking place at the beginning of August on an idyllic beach in Borriana, Castellon, few music festivals in Europe have such a gorgeous backdrop. If you like the idea of camping under the stars and watching high-profile acts in between dips in the ocean, buy some Arenal Sound tickets from StubHub today.
Background information about the Arenal Sound festival
Arenal Sound takes place near the Spanish resort of Borriana in Castellon province, around 40 miles north of Valencia and just down the coast from Benicassim (another famous musical festival which takes place in mid July). Founded in 2010, it's a relatively young event, but has swiftly picked up a massive following, both among Spanish music lovers and Europeans keen to hear their favourite bands in a sun-soaked setting.
The music lasts for six whole days, running between Tuesday and Sunday right at the start of August (so you can be sure of enjoying scorching weather). Everything is arranged around four stages, and DJ sets run until morning, pumping out tunes on the beach. If you love live music and dancing into the small hours, it's hard to imagine a more suitable festival.
The organisers provide shuttle buses to and from Castellon and Valencia, making it easy to transfer from the airport; there are glamping options for luxury travellers alongside more rough and ready campsites, and an official app helps to coordinate everything while you are on-site.
Great performers at the Arenal Sound Festival
When you book Arenal Sound tickets, you can look forward to some incredible performances. Although the festival is only a few years old, it has become a magnet for leading artists (largely due to the fact that 100,000 people turned up for the first edition). And with acts of all types, there should be something for everyone.
For instance, 2011 saw a line-up that spanned almost every musical genre, including acts like Franz Ferdinand, Mystery Jets, Scissor Sisters, Calvin Harris and Orbital, who played an epic DJ set. 2012 added even more highlights, with shows by up and coming bands like the Wombats and Two Door Cinema Club. And the highlights keep coming, with 2017's acts including Clean Bandit, Jake Bugg and Bastille.
Basically, Arenal Sound books the hottest acts of the day. Appealing to a youthful audience, it blends Spanish and European bands with DJ sets of the highest quality. What's not to love?
