Directions from Almuñecar:
1. Follow N340, E15 out of Almunecar, heading towards Nerja, Malaga

We're very pleased to announce that Adam Freeland has been confirmed for a Saturday night slot in the Dance tent at Rocket sharing the dizzy heights of the bill with Pendulum and old friends Evil Nine.

Circus at the Rocket is going from strength to strength. This year Invisible Circus and InterStella are programming the outdoor stage and the cabaret tent with a huge variety of acts from the UK, Spain and the rest of Europe. The Rocket is proud to present and support the traditional circus and performing arts in and their modern interpretations. In an increasingly electronic world, face to face communication between performers and their audience is a poignant moment of contact not available from the web or a playstation.
We'll have more details of the acts and performers in the circus area on this website soon. Come back and have a look.
After a lot of blood, sweat and tears - well, cups of coffee - the new Rocket Festival website is here! I hope you enjoy it.
