Hello and welcome omce again to Fuertenews 

The Mexican rock band “Molotov” lead the 13th El Cotillo music festival held tonight 1st and Sat 2nd. Thousands are expected to attend what we like to think of as a mini Glastonbury - just minus the mud!

The music will continue throughout the night so beware you light sleepers. There will be plenty of people dancing (and sleeping afterwards) on La Concha beach.  Its lots of fun and excitment, but remember the Police are out in full force if you are travelling from El Cotillo take care.

 My annual Canary island tour is on the books for me next week courtesy of Armas ferries. Highly recommended and good to visit some of our neighbouring islands.

Have a great weekend and week ahead.
