They are known for bringing Catalan rumba, a pop-oriented music distantly derived from traditional flamenco music, to worldwide audiences. Their music has been described as a place where “Spanish flamenco and gipsy rhapsody meet salsa funk”. There’s a full day of music and live entertainment from 3pm with the headliners on stage at 9pm.
