Festivals on Tenerife – Scalextric 2009

If you turn up with a wee plastic formula one car and a racing green hand throttle for the second Scalextric meeting in Los Realejos at the beginning of April, you might get some strange looks. It ain’t a model racing car competition, but a music festival featuring musicians from the UK, Spain and the US. Before anyone points it out, I know it’s spelled differently, but don’t tell me a figure of eight track didn’t spring to mind when you read scalextric.

Spain’s number one surf band, Los Coronas (think Beach Boys meets Pulp Fiction - I wonder if they’ll be performing ‘I wish they all could be Catalonia girls…’) are on the bill as is Jake the Rapper from the US (who, if all his tracks are like this one maybe should be renamed Jake the reluctant rapper – he does start to sing eventually, honest) and top London DJ Jeff Automatic. All in all an eclectically cool mix in Tenerife’s number 1 fiesta hotspot.

Venue: Hotel Panorámica Garden, La Longuera, 110, Los Realejos

Date: 8th April

Time: From 22.30 to 06.30

Tickets: €15 in advance, €18 on the door
