ON FEBRUARY 23, the IX edition of Perrock, a rock festival that donates all its collection to different animal shelters of the town and its surrounding areas, will be held in the Fuengirola Feria ground. José Manuel Martín, Councillor for Youth, has announced this year’s event. “This festival of music will be held from 11am to 11pm. During this time, a dozen artists will perform on stage, including Paco Ventura, guitarist of the famous band Medina Azahara and his son, Gato Ventura, as headliners this year,” explained Martin. In addition to these singers, the bands that have already confirmed attendance at the event are The Coovers, Crummy, Tribute Rock Band, 5 d’Copas, Rewind Band and Moon Rockets. “There will also be stands for animal shelters, vegetarian food stalls and even a performance by the canine patrol,” said Martin, who has encouraged pet lovers to attend the event, even accompanied by their faithful friends. “Fuengirola is an animal-friendly town. Throughout the year we carry out numerous initiatives to promote pet ownership and we always aim to favour their coexistence in public spaces and in daily life. We are proud to be the headquarters of the Perrock, an initiative that donates all its collection to different shelters so that they can meet the maintenance costs of their facilities.” Tickets cost five euros, can be bought on the door, and include access to the site, a drink and entry in a raffle.
