The festival places an equal focus beyond the music, recognising that the event must service the community as much as it does the people down in the pit. Recognised as B Corp company – alongside Bilbao BBK Live – they seek to limit their impact on the environment, use and uplift local crew and provide a safe space for all to enjoy.


In a three-star review, NME said the festival saw “stellar performances paired with partying and some teething problems”.

“Elevated by the acoustics of the sublime mountain range that surrounds the site, there’s a constant party holiday atmosphere enveloping the 37-acre coastal enclave that is home to Cala Mijas festival,” it continued.

NME added that “this is a festival with plenty of potential, but one that’s also still trying to carve out its niche”.
