Aqui está nuestra nota de prensa que explica sobre el festival en catalan y castellano.
Riba Rocks music and arts festival celebrates new, international music and creativity in an olive finca located near the village of Riba-roja d’Ebre, Catalunya, Spain. We are situated near to the stunning River Ebro and surrounded by picturesque mountain backdrop.
This eco off-grid festival is set in a natural ampitheatre and showcases amazingly talented solo artists, bands and DJs from the UK, Spain and further afield. With the art market, creative workshops and much more!! We welcome some of the best up and coming talent from all over the world with DJ sets taking you through to sunrise.
All this mixed in with wonderfully creative contemporary art, permaculture workshops, nature and history talks and poetry in Catalan and English.
We have had some fantastic suggestions from you all to improve the event, thank you and here’s some of the lovely things you’ve been saying about Riba Rocks… ‘Nature (wild and olive trees), music bands, DJ’s, beers, meals, crew, all clean, ……. and the lovely atmosphere between all people (old friends and new ones), Riba Rocks is not just perfect is just Heaven’… ‘amazing bands and Djs and most importantly such a fantastic friendly vibe’ … ‘small enough to meet so many great, like-minded souls’ … ‘VERY picturesque’ (Riba-roja d’Ebre) … ‘thank you for a fab time!’ … ‘the site is well cared for (toilets and showers)’ … ‘the crepes were awesome’ … ‘very friendly, relaxed atmosphere’ … ‘well organised’ … ‘all volunteers were incredible’ … ‘everyone lovely and friendly and helpful and FUN’ … ‘hotel hacienda pepito was perfect and the village and villagers were just magical’ … ‘the lovely taxi guy was amazing and so helpful’ … ‘make the year pass quickly!’
