It's been a while since I'm supposed to advertise for that, so here we go:

Bored of rainy & freezing northern europe spinning festival ???

Come to the second edition, of the biggest & broadest French firespinning festival, organized by the south of France spinning community "FestiFlam":

FAYA Festival, gathering people from all around France & Belgium, for a 4-days event in the South of France, in a small town named Poussan, close to Montpellier, 5km from the sea-side

multi-pass fees: 20 for 4 days, incl. breakfast, shows, camping and free parafin

Trailer Video 2008: D/L link 16Mb ("right click save as")

streaming version:

what's to be expected:

daytime :


shows (Magic, Clowns, Tale telling ..)


olylmpics , parade in town

All-nite-long free-parafin fire area

A preliminary detailed schedule is already available on the website, but its still in French so far (check out programme section ). English version expected soon

Accomodation / lift: FestiFlam will take carefull attention to all the foreign spinners that will come to spin with us. So accomodation/lift will be provided for the one that want to stay before/after the festival (Montpellier is a nice town, so is the mediteranean seaside)

During the festival well be able to camp on the site
