The Mallorca Live festival has announced a series of Es Jardi boutique concerts as part of its summer live music line up and the legendary UB40 will be performing in Magalluf on July 28.

UB40 have performed in Mallorca in the past and the group is not the only British band performing as part of the festival this year. The Kooks are going to highlight the main Mallorca Live Festival (MLF) which will be held on May 18-20 at the former Aquapark in Magalluf.

The Kooks burst onto the music scene with their debut album, ‘Inside In/Inside Out’, in 2006 to great public and critical acclaim.
