The concert commenced with the final of the Costa Pop Express talent competition: El Beso de Wendy, Musho, The Tragic Company y Cerebro Enano. Following a few acts by each band, the winner was chosen being The Tragic Company, who will be entitled to a production of a CD with five of their hits.

Each year, hundreds of people who suffer from advanced cancer, need the “special kind of caring” Cudeca offers to the patient and family thanks to its professional team of doctors, Physiologists, Nurses and Volunteers. All the care provided is totally cost-free and offered throughout the Málaga province. All the support we receive from the community is always welcome and necessary to sustain this project created 17 years ago by Joan Hunt and a group of volunteers and professionals.

Thanks to Los 40 Principales, the artists, the community of Málaga, Cudeca’s volunteers and the following sponsors: Unicaja, Costa del Sol Málaga, Área de Juventud del Ayuntamiento de Málaga, RENFE, Metro Málaga, Coca-Cola, Cruzcampo, Ron Legendario, Worten, Centro Comercial Rincón de la Victoria, Ford Garum Motor, 2016 Málaga Cuidad Europea de la Cultura y Grupo Espectáculos Mundo, Cudeca can continue to add life to days of patients who suffer from advanced cancer and care to their families all over the province of Málaga.

In the near future, Los 40 Principales will be organising a Press Conference to hand over a cheque for the final amount raised from the concert to Cudeca.

Help us to continue giving life to days of those who will need us in the future
