The Festival Internacional de la Canción de Benidorm was a song contest celebrated each summer during 1959 and 2006 in Benidorm (Alicante), and was based on the Italian San Remo song contest, to promote the Spanish music, Benidorm, and the tourism. Today, Benidorm had registered 118 hotels! Thanks to this song contest,Spanish singers such as Raphael, Dúo Dinámico, or Julio Iglesias became famous singers. Nevertheless, the Festival de Benidorm was lost importante during its last years.
Today, you can listen the 1965 Festival de Benidorm winning song, "Tu loca juventud", by Federico Cabo. Enjoy!
Tu loca juventud at Loca, loca, loca juventud
