Starlite is much more than a festival. It has been defined in many different ways: “the Formula 1 of leisure”, “the European social gathering reference” … We think it is an experience that will always remain engraved in the memory of those who live it.

At Starlite something different happens every night: Concerts with first-rate artists like you’ve never experienced before, fashion shows, cinema premieres at Europe’s largest screen and art expositions. The space design is reinvented and redesigned for each edition and the gastronomic offers are a tribute to the palate.

It is a place in which throughout 30 days the best international artists, businessmen, celebrities, and people from many different nationalities gather to discover something new.

The concerts of international stars take place in a unique space, an open-air natural quarry in the form of an amphitheatre with an extraordinary acoustic and a reduced capacity, to provide the possibility to see the artists from any location.

Starlite offers a complete parallel programming that takes place in the Lounge area and encompasses fashion, cinema, art and gastronomy.

We invite you to click here to make a virtual tour and get to know the space, and here to have a look at the programming that has been announced up to date.

The Starlite concerts are a unique experience, fundamentally because of:

The Location: It takes place in a quarry surrounded by vegetation, with 60-meter-high iluminated rock walls; an open-air space under the stars.

The Acoustic: The quarry has the shape of an amphitheatre, which allows an extraordinary acoustic (As quoted by Placido Domingo and Julio Iglesias “one of the best acoustics they have ever found”)

The capacity: As it has a reduced capacity (2.400 locations), the spectator has the opportunity to see the artists which normally perform at large capacity locations of about 20.000 to 50.000 people. This not only allows a closer feeling with the artist, but permits the artist to see the spectator and interaction between them take place.

At Starlite the furthest point from the artist is 39 meters away, and the closest is only 2 meters.

The stars: Starlite is defined by its closeness with the stars, which are not only on the stage, but also among the public, enjoying a concert, having a drink or dancing.
