The event itself didn’t feel old-fashioned or staid but because of its atmosphere it looks like mores are changing and ever-evolving sunny beaches of Fuengirola could easily be turned into a huge music picnic alike place, straight from flower power, free love, rock-n-roll sixties era.

Springsteen would be proud!
