This year will mark the 18th edition of the festival, which has become a tradition during the summer in Fuerteventura.

After the success of past editions, many fans have hoped for the event to return, as it had become one of the most expected summer festivals in Fuerteventura, organized on one of the best beaches in Fuerteventura (which is why we recommend that all participants be responsible and not leave any rubbish behind).
