Gran Canaria is to host the Spanish edition of the famous Porretta Soul Festival at an as-yet-unknown beach on the island, according to local producer Dania Dévora.

Dévora has acquired the rights to the Porretta Festival for Spain, and already holds the rights to WOMAD in Spain, and plans to hold the festival at the end of July or beginning of August 2015.

Porretta Festival has run for 28 years in Bologna and this year's line-up includes Bernard Pretty Purdie, Joe Arnold, Derek Martin, Chick Rodgers, David Hudson, Sugar Pie DeSanto, Frank Bey & Anthony Paule All Star Band feat. Sweet Nectar, Theo Huff, Prince Phillip Mitchell and Wee Willie Walker.

 WOMAD has traditionally been hosted by Las Palmas in Gran Canaria, but last year moved to Gran Tarajal in south Fuerteventura.

Dévora plans to announce the location, exact date and line-up of the Gran Canaria event in the next few days, although he has confirmed that local act the Sugar Hill band will play the main stage.

We'll keep you posted.
