The Riba Rocks festival weekend celebrates local and international music and creativity in the Eco Valley. Set in this natural ampitheatre near to the stunning River Ebro surrounded by picturesque mountain backdrop, the event showcases amazingly talented solo artists, bands and DJs from the UK, Catalunya and further afield.
All this mixed in with wonderfully creative contemporary art exhibits, yoga sessions, the artisan market, sustainability workshops, nature and history talks and poetry sessions, coming to the Riba Rocks festival offers you the chance to unplug from everyday existence and immerse yourself in this incredible natural environment.
Over the 4 editions of the festival we saw visitor numbers grow and, by 2016, 400 weekend valley dwellers enjoyed some of the best live acts around. Ibiza’s Mambo DJs headlined as part of their summer tour and to top it off the event received an award for ‘Best Festival for Contribution to Sustainability’ at the Iberian Festival Awards.
We are always seeking ways to improve the sustainability of the festival within the Eco Valley finca environment and we trust the two can run parallel and in harmony. We have an emphasis on looking after the land by using waterless facilities. Our festival kitchen is completely plastic free and we reuse or recycle as much of the waste produced by the festival as possible.
The event is run on a not-for-profit basis, any and all profits are reinvested into future events as well as the maintenance and improvements to infrastructure, no wages are taken. It is simply a reason to get together amidst nature, meet new people from all over the world and listen to some awesome music, dancing in the dust until the early hours.
The Riba Rocks Association are looking to bring the festival back as soon as possible. For now, we are concentrating our efforts on the farm, improving infrastructure and developing more sustainable practices. Thank you for your patience!
