The mountains of Mijas are about to shake, once again, to the sound of the Blues. The pretty hillside village of Mijas will be inundated with Blues lovers from all over Europe for 3 nights of the finest music Blues has to offer, from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th July 2014.
Aint Nothin' But... in collaboration with the Mijas Town Council Foreigners Department, present the 8th Mijas Blues Festival. This is a FREE Festival, to be held in the main Plaza of the beautiful hillside village of Mijas, Malaga in Southern Spain.
The Festival will be held over 3 days this year, with food & drink readily available in the Plaza and in the many surrounding bars & restaurants.
For details on who is playing this year, look at the Performers page.

The Mijas Blues Festival is a continuation of the work carried out by the Ain't Nothin' But...Blues Bar in London.
After years of talking with the local council, we finally persuaded them to give it a chance! Right from the start, the anticipation was immense and the realisation of the festival has proven to be the most popular attraction on the coast, attracting people from around Europe to this beautiful village.
The festival has provided the opportunity to take promoting The Blues to another level, and attract major artists from around the world.
This has already been proved by flying in Blues artists & bands solely to play at our festival.
We hope to become one of the major Blues festivals in Europe in the coming years, with the help of the Mijas Council, and any other sponsors who come forward to be part of it. It is festival with a very bright future.

Mijas, situated in the hearth of the western Costa del Sol lies only 30 kilometres from Malaga International Airport. It has a varied landscape that goes from the mountains all the way to the sea.
The area of Mijas is mostly mountainous with growing developments along the coast and on the gentler parts of the mountain slopes before they plunge into the sea. The Pasadas and Ojen rivers cross this area, they join to form the river Fuengirola which flows into the sea almost on the limits between Fuengirola and Mijas. Visit www.mijas.es for info on the area.
