Maspalomas Costa Canaria Soul Festival is a unique type of event in all the Canary Islands, which is celebrated with a lot of "soul" on the beach in San Agustin, close to Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles.
The concerts during the festival take place from Friday until Sunday, and they are dedicated to the entire family, so everyone from children to their grandparents is expected to participate in the event.
After two years of absence, the sixth edition of Maspalomas Costa Canaria Soul Festival will finally celebrate in 2022 on Playa de San Agustin in Gran Canaria. The event will include “some of the best soul and rhythm & blues voices from both the national and international scene.”
Participants in the event will be able to enjoy international artists such as Chick Rodgers, Ernie Johnson, Larry Springfield, Leon Beal, Mitch Woods and Nona Brown.
Up until now, prominent names in the soul music genre such as Tony Wilson, Khylah B., Wendy Moten, Chilly Bill Rankin, Jerry Jones, Annika Chambers, LaRhonda Steele, Steffen Morrison, Ernie Johnson, Missy Andersen and John Ellison have participated in this popular event in Gran Canaria.
Maspalomas Costa Canaria Soul Festival has been declared an event of local tourist interest in 2017 and since then it keeps growing in importance. At the moment, this is the only festival dedicated to soul music happening in Spain.
