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



https://www.fayafestival.fr/



contact@festiflam.net



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: https://www.dailymotion.com/Mex_Festiflam/video/x5fefg_trailerfaya2008_creation



what's to be expected:

daytime :

workshops

shows (Magic, Clowns, Tale telling ..)

concerts

olylmpics , parade in town



night time :

firespinning shows ( Troupe shows expected: Manda Lights (Imakokode+Forka), ArtInMotion (Rastaxel, Pistache & co ), Val, Pando and many more surprises )

Gigs / DJ sets / dancefloor (Dnb, Reagge, Trance, ska )

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



If anyone want to volunteer / teach workshops get in touch with Festiflam via contact@festiflam.net

It clashes with the *only* weekend all my non-spinning mates are getting together...
This year is not a good year for festivals - everything seems to clash this year frown

Comment ca va mes amis?

I'll definitely be at this one. In fact I'm researching the travel details at this very moment. I was hoping maybe people might be road tripping from England but if not I'm also looking to meet up with people traveling from Paris.

Olive, I'm guessing you're going this year again. How and when do you plan to get there?

A tres bientot.

wow more brilliant spinner coming ubbrollsmile

G / Pete> I'll personally will be travelling by train Paris to Montpellier (depart thursday eve or friday morning / back on monday night)
I reckon the easiest way to travel from the UK is eurostar (2.5h) + TGV (3h)
You guys can have a longer stop in Paris if you feel like it wink
Pete, if you're running on low budget, I can investigate car sharing with the parisian I know.
I personally will be taking train, cause the driving takes at least 7h
