RITUAL CVLT FEST is the essence of all RITUAL CVLT parties; multiplied, developed, amplified and taken to the nth degree, it becomes the festival we were all waiting for.
Barcelona is oversaturated with musical alternatives but it still missing an ‘indoors’ festival. An event held in a fully-equipped venue that will host a festival concept far from large events drawing huge crowds that can focus on artistic and professional connections with the rest of Europe. There’s none in the rest of Spain either.
Our festival is characterized by a near and familiar approach that enables the development of other parallel activities with specific goals.
As part of our interest in developing relations in the European arena, RITUAL CVLT FEST aims at connecting professionals in the sector to promote dialogue and discuss different ideas.
As an event, one of the main interests of RITUAL CVLT FEST is that of becoming a bridge between national and international professionals with an educational aim.
There are some small format European festivals that are examples of outstanding management (Supersonic, Incubate, Amplifest, Roadburn, Inferno). RITUAL CVLT FEST wants to be one of them.
Our second major goal is to progressively attract an international audience by offering lineups targeted at a European audience, so to makes us less exclusively dependent on the local audience.
