In 2014, you made some awesome suggestions to improve the Riba Rocks festival including ‘more shade areas’, ‘a shuttle bus to the river and village’, ‘more vegetarian and gluten free food options’, ‘music and workshops during the day’, as well as a ‘tea tent’.
So… we brought you…
The tipi on the Delta Vista terrace which provided much needed shade during the day and also hosted daytime activities including poetry, nature talks, history presentations and acoustic performances. We hosted Daytime DJs on the main stage throughout the weekend. We also brought you the Daff Cafe with more shade and lots of tea and cake as well as a regular shuttle bus service from the festival to the river and the village. We offered homemade vegetarian burgers and falafel using our very own Riba Rocks organic olive oil as well as fresh fruit salad, yoghurt and granola.
Now, we need more feedback from you all now to further improve this little off-grid eco festival.

Sunday at Riba Rocks was a very special day filled with Anglo-Catalan cultural exchange, Catalan history and nature presentations on the Delta Vista tipi terrace.
Huge thanks to Daniel Piñol, Andreu Carranza, Eileen Misselbrook, Josep Cid, Adria Cid, Pere Josep from the Sebes Nature Reserve and Antonio Suarez (the mayor of Riba-roja d’Ebre).
Throughout the day we were treated to some superb Reggae sets from DJ Filtah and then… something rather special… a marathon Sunday Sunset Session by the awesome DJ Joe Brook.
This was the perfect way to end the weekend.
Again, a HUGE thanks to our official Riba Rocks photographer Riikka Neste for a whole weekend of non-stop work capturing all the wonderful moments throughout the weekend.
Riba Rocks 2015 would not have been possible without the awesome team of volunteers who gave up their valuable time to support this event, our continued thanks goes out to you all.
Super Saturday at Riba Rocks 2015 festival was packed full and what a treat it was…
Along with the beautiful sunshine, we were treated to such a high quality line up as our little festival continues to grow. A whole day and night of solo artists, folk and indie groups and superstar DJs who took us through till dawn, not to mention the impromptu limbo dancing and glitteratti face painting!
Troubadour’s Garden opened the main stage (we all want them to move here as the valley is not the same without them), followed by the wonderful sounds of A Lovely War, Alex Hulme, Louis Romegoux, the return of Ali Ingle which got the crowd singing along to superb tunes such as ‘Tornado’, Mog Stanley brought his blues to the valley and then Luke Cusato filled this natural ampitheatre with his gorgeous vocals.
We were then treated to epic performances from Linqae and this year’s headliner Empathy Test. Charm Offensive formed the best bridge ever from bands to DJs, he was just amazing and then the one and only Jonty took to the decks. Followed by Ibiza’s Dr Feelgood and then headline DJ Sarah Main.
That wasn’t it, Marc Flood took us all through till dawn.
What a day that was, simply unforgettable. With HUGE thanks to our official Riba Rocks photographer Riikka Neste.
A bit of rain delayed us but it didn’t dampen our spirits… when the sun finally brightened up the bunting filled valley we were ready to party!
With the flamingos on ‘Delta Vista’ tipi terrace and pink leds galore, bagpipes from yoga rock signaled the start of something very special…
We welcomed to the Great Beyond Records Main Stage our very own DJ Doctor Feelgood to kick things off, followed by Ibiza’s DJ Filtah and then local boys The Good Sound Night, Pedrols Sanchez and Tarri and Sami.
The first night was a DJ marathon opening party and well and truly set the pace for the rest of the weekend!
Here’s a very handy festival site map you can download and have with you on your phone or tablet for this year’s festival. We can’t wait to welcome you all to the valley for the 3rd Riba Rocks international music and arts festival. With new additions this year including the ‘Delta Vista’, ‘Daff Cafe’ ‘Riba Rocks Shuttle Bus’ and ‘Solar Wifi Zone’, we just cannot wait!
