Top DJs are set to gather in Benidorm’s famous Julio Iglesias Auditorium in Parque de l’Aigüera on June 18 to present a major event called “Tribute to the Route”, a celebration of the music of the 90s.
The event will feature 15 performances and follows a similar celebration held in 2019 in Valencia, before the pandemic.
The Councilor for Festivals and Events, Jesús Carrobles, unveiled plans today (Monday), accompanied by Víctor Pérez, representative of the organising company, and José Vicente Fuster, President of the Comissió de Festes Majors Patronals.
Carrobles said the event—‘La Ruta’— will be a “the starting signal for Benidorm’s musical summer”, while Pérez said that audiences would come from all over the region.
It will no doubt enhance Benidorm’s reputation for being one of the best party resorts in Europe.
Seven hours of “Bacalao” music
Among the celebrated DJs who will provide “bacalao” music for seven hours will be Danae, Jerry Daley, New Limit and Two Power. “Bacalao” is Spanish for cod fish, and was a slang term used by Valencian DJs who were central to the the region’s rave scenes from the 80s onwards.
More than 120 people collaborated to make the Benidorm event possible, including representatives of Benidorm clubs. Organizers revealed that those who bought their tickets when this event was announced before the pandemic will receive a CD with original “La Ruta” songs as a gift.

An estimated 2,000 people are expected to attend the event.
