Freektion Festival 2016
Freektion is a music and performing amateur arts festival organized by various cultural agents of Valencia. It will take place on May 13th , 14th and 15th in a cozy corner of the Sierra de Enguera province of Valencia, called La Casa del Balcon, surrounded by fields and forest.
The aim is to organize a different - free festival through associative and cooperative approaches, by involving both the artist and the public and workers of the construction and develop of the festival itself.
We propose the realization of this free festival as a connector between different artists, styles and disciplines; and as a platform to show the status of the current amateur scene.
The activities are the main contents of the festival and the demonstration of a large substrate that feeds amateur contemporary cultural scene. During the festival the following activities will be held:
Live music concerts
Workshops and lectures
Circus, dance and other disciplines
Recreational activities for children and adults (storytelling, puppets, etc.)
Projection of documentaries and films
*The festival features parking area, camping, dry toilets and showers.
The spirit of the festival is evolving over the time under five basic concepts:
Under these premises, the festival aims to develop a number of major goals:
-To promote amateur artistic culture and "Free Festivals"
-Serve as a meeting and exchange between workers, artists and public
-Develop cooperative and horizontal methods of working
-Build and develop a sustainable and respectful festival with nature
-Promoting free entertainment, free and responsible consumption
-To serve as a platform for local crafts
-Promote knowledge of the region and its natural surroundings
In Friktion, technicians, artists and organisers do not work for money, we work for giving us the opportunity to create together something different within our cultural landscape.
We are people from different areas, from artistic to associative management. Therefore, we are open to different types of collaborations (artists, craftsmen, volunteers ...) and create networks.
