A year ago (how time flies), we announced the start of a very special festival in Mundaka. Back then, we described it as a different kind of festival, because its goal was to join up the three basic elements of “the way of life of the Basques”: music, food, and the love for outdoor sports.
The first event was so special that at the first annual Iberian Festival Awards, it was a finalist in seven categories, and a winner in two: Best Medium-Formal Spanish Festival and Best Début Festival on the Peninsula.
This year, what’s on offer at the Mundaka Festival has reached us, updated and upgraded. The experience of having had such a successful first edition is a good sign that the organizers have planned this year’s events even better, along with a few surprises.
Along with a band list that’s bound to draw crowds, this year’s event with also dig deeper into something else that will also be of great interest: experiences. This is because, as the organizers tweeted, the place where the Festival is to be held and the experiences this will give to the participants have a unique value all their own.

These are experiences that will be added to the ones had last year, like the visit to the wineries at Itsasmendi, or discovering the Urdaibai Biosphere in a small plane.
This is definitely an opportunity to enjoy a unique festival in a very unique environment.
