On behalf of the Sandungueros Samba group in Mallorca, we inform you that registrations are now open to participate in the ninth edition of the +KSamba Festival, on June 28 and 29, 2024, in Lloseta (Mallorca). Below you will find some information about this fantastic event; we hope you consider joining!
The +KSamba Festival 2024 will last for two days, and has free admission.
On Friday afternoon, June 28, we plan to kick off the festival with a first workshop, followed by an official welcome dinner for all participating groups (courtesy of the Sandungueros). Afterward, everyone will enjoy stage concerts (bands to be confirmed) in the square of the Lloseta Theater.
On Saturday morning, June 29, we will have a second workshop with a SAMBA DE BAHÍA MESTRE. Workshop participants will have lunch included (paella!) and receive a festival souvenir. In the afternoon, we have a program with simultaneous performances in different locations in Lloseta, providing the participating batucadas with the opportunity to play. It will be a street performance lasting 20 to 25 minutes, static.
After the street performances, there will be a huge parade with all the Batucadas, which will lead to the main stage.
In the evening, we will have performances with the headliners on the main stage, with no entrance fee. There will be food trucks with different types of food and refreshments. Later in the evening, there will be a ‘closing party’ in one of the many pubs of Lloseta.
Accepted batucadas can avail accommodation in the sports hall or classrooms of the Lloseta school during the festival weekend, from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon (at no cost).
In the past editions we had over 30 groups participating, including batucadas from the Netherlands, Colombia, Italy, the United Kingdom, Hungary, France, Germany, and many from the rest of Spain.
This year, our plan is to limit the number of attending groups. If you're interested in the idea of attending a festival in Mallorca in the summer, we encourage you to submit your application. The atmosphere will be fantastic.
Here is the participation application form, and the deadline to complete it is March 17, 2024: https://forms.gle/nBkjQs5oVt4Co2Wr9
Right after the deadline, we will inform all batucadas about the status of their applications. Interested batucadas will be assigned a Sandunguero/a as a reference who will assist you before and during the festival for any logistical questions.
Finally, we will keep updating the festival schedule on our social media:
