Mosteiro, Lugo

The festival will take place in Mosteiro, a small village located 25km away from the city of Lugo, in Galicia.

Enjoy seven days of dance and community in the natural surroundings of Mosteiro. We will dance in the newly renovated sports hall, located between the riverbank area of the Azúmara River and the oak grove that shapes the small village.

During downtime, you can relax by the riverbank or take a dip in the municipal outdoor pool. Just a few minutes' walk away, you'll find amenities like bars, a bakery, an ATM, and a supermarket.

The festival provides access to all necessary facilities such as changing rooms, bathrooms, and parking.

In the green areas near the sports hall, we will have two large tents that, along with the oak grove itself, we will use as a dining area and camping areas as desired.
