This festival has been nominated several times in the European Festival Awards, which award the best festivals of the continent in different categories.

On Friday, the Kobetamandi doors will be opened again to welcome The Prodigy, one of the most renowned electronic music bands at the moment, which makes the public tremble at all the festivals. Jack Johnson, Bastille and Foster the Children will also be playing on Friday. The Black Keys will conclude the programme on Saturday in their only concert in Spain. Bands like MGMT, The Lumineers or Band of Horses will be accompanying The Black Keys on the last day of the festival.
