Mod culture, music and cultural and musical events are just some of the things you can experience at the festival. With a vintage fair, record shops and several club nights with international dj’s, including a few from the UK, this is definitely the place to be.
If you’ve got a band, we recommend you enter the battle of the bands three of which will be handpicked by a jury to go head to head in a competition where the prize is two days of free recording in a vintage record studio to produce a 45” edition vinyl. How cool is that?
There are also 60s cult film screenings throughout the festival. Our favourite is “Wind in the Street”, a classic from 1968 where a 24 year old becomes president.
Spend your days lounging on the beach whist listening to the afternoon djs blasting out your favourite 60s tunes, have a stroll among the vintage clothes stalls or pick up a copy of your favourite vinyl. Is there a better way to spend a lazy holiday weekend? We think not.
If you want to take part in the psychedelic 60s, dress up as Twiggy and jump on the ferry to Calais. From there it’s about a day’s drive to Gijon.
