The five-time MTV EMA Award-winning English rock band, Muse, includes Matt Bellamy, lead vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist; Chris Wolstenholme bass guitarist and vocalist; and Dominic Howard, drummer. With over 20 million album sales worldwide, Muse has several Billboard top 100 hits including “Uprising,” “Madness” “Time is Running Out,” “Psycho,” Super Massive Black Hole” and “Starlight.” The band’s new Album ‘Simulation Theory’ will be released on Friday 9th November, and this will be the first time Muse performs tracks from their new album in Spain.


The English-Spanish electronic/folk band, Crystal Fighters, describe their style as “fast, mesmeric and passionate.” Spanning continents, the band’s ever-evolving sound captures everything that makes their shows a life-affirming experience: a joyous explosion of beats, electronics and bass dazzlingly delivered onstage. Fresh from headlining the Arenal Sound Festival this summer, the band’s powerful live show has been described as “the best on the planet,” incorporating elements of dance music with acoustic guitars and traditional Basque instruments. The band rose from performing at warehouse parties in London to international popularity with three studio albums touting popular singles like “At Home,” “Boomin’ In Your Jeep” and “Follow,” and are set to have a big 2019 ahead of them with new music due imminently.

Crystal Fighters includes frontman Sebastian Pringle; Gilbert Vierich, guitarist and percussionist; and Graham Dickson, guitarist.
