Monegros Desert Festival

A life in the desert

25 years ago, 200 friends of the Arnau, without permission and under the excuse of a large family barbecue, decided to organize a free RAVE in a land that the family had lost and recovered in a game of poker. The experience was incredible and they decided to repeat the following year.

25 years later we are in front of one of the most innovative and important events of the electronic music scene in Europe.
