basque FEST, Primer Festival de la Cultura y la Vanguardia Vasca

On March 28, 29, 30 and 31, Bilbao will host the first edition of the “Basque FEST”, a festival that will be a cultural reference for the future and that will turn Bilbao into a cultural must at Easter. Besides generating economic and cultural activity in the city, the festival will showcase Basque culture in different aspects and also in several parts in the city.

The ‘Basque Fest’ program features arts, exhibitions, dance, street theatre, entertainment for children, crafts, concerts, Basque design show and sale, gastronomy and sports such as Basque bat, rowing and jai alai. “Basque FEST” has a clearly defined potential audience, which includes residents in Bilbao, its metropolitan area, territories and bordering communities. It is also aimed at state and international tourists who visit us at Easter.

The “lauburu” (four heads), the distinguishing mark of Basque culture, becomes the protagonist of the festival brand and draws together the different contents that make up the”basque FEST”. The festival is divided into five sections: Culture, Music, Market, Sport and Gourmet, linked by the image of a lauburu in different colour schemes.
