We are officially the first festival in the Valencian Community to be certified for its family friendly character. Thanks to the brand Tour & Kids and which is supported by the Valencia Agency for Tourism (AVT). This development consolidates our event as a holiday destination and the activities we organise for our ‘child’ and family audience, to which we dedicate more than half of our 14 extra-musical areas, some of which boast exclusive programs, such as Magicomundo and Rototom Circus, giving shape to a festival by day with over eight hours of uninterrupted beats a day, until sunset.
This year our two most family orientated areas Magicomundo and Rototom Circus, programs will be strongly influenced by Africa and its cultures. Create, play, dream, share and offer a different perspective on education from different viewpoints, that is what is at the heart of Magicomundo, the most family orientated space, with 7 hours a day of activity in its six territories with special guests like the Ethiopian circus company Fekat Circus, one of the key participants at Rototom Circus. Each day, from 15:00 until the concerts on Main Stage begin this space will offer its circus school, its Olympics, and circus shows for audiences of all ages. Activities for families will also be on offer in other parts of the festival arena, such as Mercado ArteSano, Pachamama and African Village, and on the beaches of Benicassim and Castellon with the SunBeach and Solé Rototom Beach. To be precise, the festival’s beach bar broadens its program of cultural and sporting events to experience and enjoy with the family, thanks to Formigues Festival.
Furthermore, this year we have improved the Campsite for those who come with their family. We open a kiddy park to play and relax aswell as a closed space for changing babies.
