Over 80,000 people attended the latest edition of the festival gathered. It has been considered as one of the most important events of the year, and in 2012 it was recognized as the ‘Best Festival in Spain’ during the 4th Edition of the Independent Music Awards. It has also received the ‘Fest Award to the Best Large-Scale Festival’ in 2017. Its concerts are broadcasted live on the Spanish National Radio’s Radio 3.

Over its 21 editions the festival has always had an international approach, but in the recent years it has focused mainly in the national music scene.
