ARE THERE DIFFERENT TYPES OF EVENTS AND/OR ZONES AT THE FESTIVAL?

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT STARLITE OCCIDENT CONCERTS?
Starlite Occident concerts are a unique experience, mainly due to:
• The venue: They are held in a quarry surrounded by vegetation, with rock walls 60 meters high, illuminated, in the open air and under the stars.
• The acoustics: The quarry is shaped like an amphitheater, which gives rise to extraordinary acoustics (according to Plácido Domingo and Julio Iglesias “one of the best acoustics they have ever found”).
• The capacity: Being a very small capacity (3,000 seats), the spectator has the opportunity to see artists who usually perform in front of large audiences of 20,000 to 50,000 people. This proximity means that the spectator not only sees the artist, but the artist sees the spectator, interacting with the audience instead of seeing them as a point in the distance. At Starlite, the farthest place from the stage is 39 meters away and the closest is only 2 meters away.
• The stars: Starlite Occident is defined by its proximity to the stars, who are not only on stage, but also in the audience, enjoying the concert, having a drink or dancing.
