Words cannot do our gratitude and delight justice—but we'll still try!
A huge and all-encompassing thank you to each and everyone of you who attended and participated: to our artists for consistently kicking so much ass both on stage and off, to every member of our team who helped us make it all happen, to the volunteers who supported us, to the venues and clubs for providing us with space yet again, and to our audience for listening and dancing persistently and for sharing in this journey with us over the years.
As editions pass, the festival has really become more and more of a celebration of making contact and exchanging in all possible ways. 10 days of sharing ideas, knowledge, art, and emotions has a colossal impact; new friendships are forged, and new collaborations are sparked. In thinking of this footprint, and these ripples that extend far beyond the actual festival, we feel incredibly grateful for and excited by the echo of these few fleeting moments.
Thank you all once again, and we hope to see you next year!
