Live Preview: Mallorca Live Festival 2022

Transforming the Calvìa region into a sonic hub for the old, the new and the global...

Mallorca Live Festival bounces back in full swing to mark their 5th anniversary this June.

Dipping into a large pool of influences, the line-up extends itself across the noughties pop stardom of Christina Aguilera, to Spanish rap heavyweight C. Tangana and the groovy bounce of Peggy Gou. Other key performances include Metronomy, Muse, Franz Ferdinand, The Blessed Madonna and Supergrass.

Since its emergence in 2016, Mallorca Live Festival has quickly occupied its own lane as the most popular international festival in the Balearic Islands despite its expansive music scene. Tickets are available HERE.

The event will take place over the course of three days between the 24th to 26th June, situating itself amongst the green landscape of Serra de Tramuntana. In its versatile location, the premium festival experience encourages attendees to visit the island’s blue flag beaches and delve into its historic architecture, with its main stage centred in the Antiguo Aquapark Calvìa.

In its focus, Mallorca Live Festival seeks to showcase the all-encompassing, shifting its spotlight between international and local talent, bringing together a varied, era-defying audience.

On Friday, crowds will be summoned by ever-evolving Birmingham alternative-rock band Editors, who are joined by Spanish indie mainstays Izal. Maintaining a balance between its sonics, the first chapter of the festival places its electronic leanings in the hands of Max Cooper and Bradley Zero.

Saturday steers into the pop sphere with main headliner Christina Aguilera, whose voice continues to reach new heights in its contemporary soul and range. The festival goes on to invite British rock key players Temples and Jeff Mills, otherwise known as 'The Wizard'.

The weekend’s Sunday closer ends on a high with Muse, who will be making their debut performance in the Balearic Islands. Metronomy will brace the opportunity to share seventh studio album ‘Small World’ with fans whilst amping up the nostalgia with their older material. Turning to the evening pulsers, The Blessed Madonna and Ben UFO will take over the decks and deliver the best of legendary dance music.
