CHRIS KING - co founder FESTIVAL OF LEGENDS
Chris has many years’ experience in the entertainment industry, starting out at the age of 15 in his own rock band in his native Wales. In 1990 he moved to Southern Spain in 1990, where he quickly became involved in the very lively music scene that was thriving there. The Costa del Sol’s very first ever mobile karaoke company - ”The All Stars Karaoke” - soon became a big hit, and is still running to this very day under the control of best friend Steve Fozz! Chris started his own music agency “Chris King Promotions” in 1996, bringing over some of the very best tribute acts on the UK circuit, with many from Granada TV’s top show of the time - “Stars In Their Eyes”. He quickly established himself as one of the best-known tribute act agents of the era, and was probably the first agent to ever bring tribute acts to Spain from the UK. The business progressed into bringing over tribute bands, original recording artistes, soap stars, and many famous ‘household name’ comedians. These included Frank Carson, Jimmy Cricket, The Grumbleweeds, Stan Boardman, The Krankies, Paul Melba, The Brother Lees, Billy Pearce, Jimmy Jones, and more. During this period, Chris was the main agent for the most famous cabaret bar ever on the Costa del Sol - THE ELEFANTE , as well as supplying these acts to venues in Benidorm and Tenerife for many years.

In 2015 Chris met up purely by accident with Alberto Cohen, and although as different in their backgrounds and ways as chalk and cheese, they very quickly struck up a great rapport and the rest as they say, is history - The Festival Of Legends was born! Chris and Alberto staged many great concerts along the Costa del Sol, including some classics in the famous Summer venue, the Mijas Auditorium. In July 2017 they had the honour of being asked to provide artistes for the famous Starlite Marbella festival, and brought over the highly acclaimed Bootleg Beatles from the UK. The awesome 35 piece Malaga Symphony Orchestra was used to recreate the Sgt Pepper’s album live on stage, to a sell out crowd! In 2020, Chris made the move over to Portugal, leaving Alberto to continue on the Costa del Sol.
