REVIEWS:

We were recently reviewed by the Guardian’s Will Coldwell as one of the “10 best festivals in Europe you’ve probably never heard of“.

“While chai tents and bead stalls circle the grassy bowl where the main stage is located, there are also unexpected finds, such as stone-baked pizza, bars specialising in aperol spritzers and, gasp, good coffee – well this is Italy.”
Natalie Paris – The Telegraph – Mandrea Review

“Just being on the site is the biggest highlight, sheer rock faces, amazing views from the cliff edge and the friendliest butterflies in the world. You can spend days swimming in the beautiful rural setting of the Emerald Lake or at the fashionable beaches of Riva Del Garda. The scenery, the architecture!! In the evenings the music is phenomenal”
Paul

“Everyday has been an absolute blast and this is my third year. See you next year”
