Adam Pinson – Exhibition

At this year’s Riba Rocks, you will not only be able to listen to some superb bands and djs from all over the world. You will also be treated to a series of contemporary art exhibitions.

The first, installed in the Daff Cafe, presents Adam Pinson’s work, which is something you will want to stand and stare at for hours on end, admiring the unique talent of the artist, reading the content and concept and admiring the absolute commitment by the artist to these all consuming works of art.

No More Plastic Plates

We promise there will be no plastic plates or forks at this year’s Riba Rocks. Everything you use on the Great Beyond Records Main Stage will be COMPOSTABLE… we have sourced compostable plates and forks from Enviropack in the hope to make the festival as sustainable as we possibly can…

Discarded plates and forks on the Main Stage will be placed into separate containers and allowed to rot down and then it will be mixed in with the ‘deposits’ in the compost toilets and spread on the garden!

We are a small, intimate festival. Still our goal is to ‘Leave No Trace’ on the valley each year and to respect the beautiful wildlife therein. Help us to do that by separating your waste during your stay! Thanks so much. The RR Team.

Permaculture workshop with Boodaville

This year at Riba Rocks, we welcome to The Valley Anna Gurney from the Boodaville Project. Anna will be talking to us about permaculture ideas and philosophies as well as running a daytime workshop. We are really excited for you all to meet Anna and we feel this will be an invaluable exercise for our festival community.

The Boodaville Project, in the Matarranya district of Spain started in 2008 with the purchase of 1.5 hectares of olive terraces and pine forests in a stunning, tranquil location. Over the years, many people in an ever-growing international community have become involved and we’ve learned about, and applied, permaculture design during the development of the site.

The long term goal is to create a working example of permaculture principles in action, including food production, comfortable accommodation for guests and plenty of space for workshops and courses. In a nutshell, permaculture means that we will plan carefully to design hyper-efficient systems which make the most of natural processes, use few external resources, generate very little waste and are considerate of the local and global community. It will be a constantly evolving project as we move as close as possible to being truly sustainable while enabling others to change their own lifestyles and opening minds to alternative ways of seeing the world and relating to it.

Here’s dates for a few of the upcoming Boodaville events:
July 24-26 2015 : Weekend Retreat / Retiro – Yoga / Naturaleza / Relaxation
October 3 – 10 : Workcamp – Applied Permaculture Design / Campo de Trabajo – Permacultura
