BioRitme Arrives with Many Surprises!
From 24 - 27 August in Pantà de Sau, the fifth edition of the 100% ecological festival called BioRitme will take place. Music, nature, ecology and consciousness are the mottos of this festival. BioRitme is a unique opportunity to see on stage many Catalan and Spanish artists. Numerous live concerts, talks, food, cosmetics, health, recycling, natural therapies, and many children's activities... All this and much more at the festival that is pure joy for your body and mind.
As advertised, and like the previous editions, the festival will take place in Pantà de Sau, a natural and perfectly preserved place on the coastline and surrounded by mountains. Visitors are invited to leave the place as they found it. Therefore you'll find many many containers all over the place, so don't even think about throwing a cigarette butt on the floor. For Pantà de Sau, Bioritme has meant an increase of tourists and a boost to its economic activity, without distorting the valley. An example to follow!
Hot to get to Bioritme
This year, the festival offers a new transport service that's simpler and faster than before. From Barcelona, Girona, Tarragona, Lleida, Vic or Valencia, you can take a bus that will leave you directly at the gates of the festival. The one from Barcelona will leave on 24 August at 9:30AM just by the Venetian towers on Plaça d'Espanya. Round trip tickets cost €19 from Barcelona, €12 from Vic, and €26 from other cities.
Connections between the festival, parking lot and village of Vilanova de Sau have also been improved with an efficient transport system. Simpler, faster, and of course, more environmentally friendly.
To fully enjoy the festival, we recommend spending the night there. To do this, there are three camping areas set up. The first one is reserved for families with children of 15 years or less, another is for adults over 25 years and the last one is open to anyone without distinction.
If you don't have any camping equipment or if you just don't want to bother setting up a tent, Bioritme also has a solution. The festival offers an area with several tents already installed so you'll just have to slip inside. You can choose from tents for 2 to 7 people, and prices range from €220 to €410 for the entire stay. Keep in mind, however, that this area is accessible to everyone, regardless of age.
Advice and tips before going
The festival takes place during the last week of August in a mountainous landscape. You can expect hot weather during the day, but temperatures may be slightly cooler at night. So take sunscreen and sunglasses with you, as well as backup warm clothes for the night.
Like most music festivals, you can't enter with alcohol. However, you can bring food and non-alcoholic drinks with you (but not in glass bottles). If you stay there during the night, don't forget to bring a flashlight and a portable battery charger for your phone. Finally, get ready to enjoy a special experience and meet people from very different backgrounds. The atmosphere is nice and everyone is open minded, so let yourself go.
