Music makes everything that little bit more memorable. One of the world’s most famous pop bands from years gone by is making a stop on the beautiful islands of Majorca for one night only and this could be your opportunity to add that charismatic theme tune to your family holiday. Who is it, you may ask? I’ll give you a four-letter clue, Y… M… C… & A. Yes, it’s the Village People. A major throwback to the 70’s and 80’s amongst an array of fantastic artists from pop, rock and jazz backgrounds that can be found on the list of musicians set to light up the stage at this year’s Port Adriano Festival.
