On a more festive environament we want to put stress on the “Fiesta, música y teatro musical” (Party, music, and musical theatre) evening at Can Rafart with The Funktoniks, Cop de Teatre (with Carla Hornos & The Pinkladies) , ContagiAR-T and DJ Edu and Nemo. There’ll be also collective meals and lunch on Saturday 31st of May and Sunday 1st of June. For the kids there’ll be a particular funfair with “analogue” attractions.
