The focus of Rock Against Cancer is to raise money and awareness for the fight against cancer, research and prevention through entertainment, events, concerts and other activities. 

Founded in 2009, Rock Against Cancer is an annual music event dedicated to raising funds and awareness about Cancer, with a special focus on helping local people and individual sufferers.

Our first event was the brainchild of Monroe’s Rock Cafe Pub owners Neil and Nigel Wyatt, Torrevieja’s oldest Theme Pub, to celebrate their 20th Anniversary… Further events in the historic and ionic Eras de la Sal were to follow along with two street parties.

Nigel and Neil then teamed up with the Torrevieja Town Hall and joined forces with those who had been involved in producing Torrevieja’s International Charity Benefit Concerts in 2004 thru 2006. This combination helped to create what is now the largest International Charity Music event in the City of Salt.

The popularity of Rock Against Cancer has resulted in its expansion from a one day event to two days, taking place on a Friday evening and all day Saturday, in Torrevieja’s Eras de la Sal.  

In 2019, 1980’s Pop Idol Paul Young (and friends) performed a benefit concert to raise funds for Rock Against Cancer, the first of many planned concerts we hope to collaborate on throughout Spain.

We also plan a series of events all over Spain and any pub, cafe, venue, etc, who would like to organise their own event should contact us for details.

In one form another, all of us have had friends or family who have suffered from Cancer. Cancer does not discriminate. You could be a chain smoker, a casual or social smoker or a non-smoker. A heavy drinker or a teetotaller. A sun worshiper or a factor 50 cream addict. Fit and healthy or a couch potato. It matters not. But we hope to help in our small way at helping educate, raise awareness and funds for the professionals to use for our benefit, in case the worse happens to us or a loved one.


Like with every form of cancer, early detection is what it is all about. I urge everyone to learn the facts about this condition. It can be prevented with testing, and it can be beaten if caught early!
