If you can handle the heat, Murcia is a great place to go for open air concerts in July.
There is the San Javier Jazz festival in this month where stars such as George Benson, Roberta Flack, Maceo Parker, Solomon Burke play in an open air auditorium in a park in San Javier. The tickets are rarely over 20€ and you can drink and eat there (there is a bar). It is also quite small compared to big city concert halls and it makes for an intimate and relaxed atmosphere in the open air on a summer's night.
You can find programs and buy tickets on www.jazzsanjavier.com
In the same month, there is also a World Music festival in Cartagena (Murcia).
This is fantastic too. There is a different country as the theme each year (2009 is Morocco) and they mix music from the stars of this country with other international acts. The auditorium is open air at the top of a mountain with fantastic views of the Roman ruins of an auditorium just below it and there usually follows another concert in a Moorish castle above this.
There is a great atmosphere here and fantastic views and you usually get 5 hours of concert with some really eclectic mixes of musicians for under 20€!
Tickets can be bought from www.lamardemusicas.com
In the very same month in Lorca (Murcia) there is an open air music festival in the site of the castle of Lorca with different acts (mainly rock) every year.
For music lovers the world over, this is a great opportunity for tourism and music, all rolled into one!

There are three "worth to see" music festivals in Murcia Region trough the year. The first one is: Murcia tres culturas. Runs normally in may-june and its program is based on Arabian, Jewish and Christian folk music. It happens in Murcia city. The second one: La mar de Musicas. This is a big world music festival with every year another guest country. It runs in July in Cartagena city. And the last one, for the flamenco Lovers: festival de cante de las minas . Probably the best flamenco festival of Spain. It runs in La Union (little city near by Cartagena) in August, when the temperature in Murcia can reach the 50 degrees celsius, so i only recommend this for the crazy spain fans. Me myself i couldn`t do it :)
