Located in the heart of Catalonia, the historical town of Manresa hosts this yearly festival dedicated to local culture and global music. For industry professionals, it's promoted as a 'market of performances', which for the general public means it's a great opportunity to discover visual arts, circus, dance, art, music, narration and theatre that combine tradition with contemporary creativity.

The programme is understandably packed, with acts running during the day and at night, and with both street performances and shows in various local venues. So you might one moment see a display of hip hop and the next a concert by a Congolese band, followed by a new take on acrobatics and then a sword dance. All of which is interspersed with some of the most classic elements of Catalan culture such as 'human towers' (castells), 'fire runs' (correfocs) and 'giants' (gegants).
