Rockin’ Race celebrated its quarter century in grand style this year. We donned our shades to raise a glass…

Europe’s first summer rock’n’roll festival reached the grand old age of 25 in February 2019 with a stellar lineup, capacity crowds and five days of solid sunshine.

The Costa del Sol shows centred on Torremolinos boasted a wide variety of rock’n’roll, encompassing rockabilly, 50s rock’n’roll, blues, hillbilly, country and Americana, which explains why it finally won the 2019 Ameripolitan award for best festival in the world, having been shortlisted for the past two years.

There were big names like Dale Watson, The Paladins, Deke Dickerson and Crazy Cavan, heritage acts from the 50s like Johnny Knight and Johnny Tedesco, and reformed aggregations like The Original Planet Rockers alongside bands selected for their skills rather than their reputations.
