The music pageant Cala Mijas has been suspended definitively after solely two editions held within the Malaga municipality in 2022 and 2023.

The pageant was organized by the promoter Last Tour, the corporate behind festivals akin to Bilbao BBK Live and Azkena Rock and Taylor Swift's Iberian tour. In a harsh assertion towards the Mijas City Council, ruled by the PP, the group blames the company for “repeated and serious breaches“, probably the most related of all of them consisting of the non-payment of the vital sums in sponsorship in relation to the 2023 version of the pageant, a non-payment that has persevered regardless of the continual cost necessities formulated.”

Likewise, Last Tour disgraces the City Council for “the dearth of conditioning and provision of services on the venue” and “the unjustified disregard of their contractual commitments”which prevents, as stated in its statement, “the continuation of the agreed collaboration.”

Cala Mijas was born in 2022 at the initiative of the previous municipal government, led by the PSOE. The electoral overturn in the 2023 elections, when the City Council passed into the hands of the PP, explains the cancellation announced this Friday.
