Imagine a musical event where people go dressed up, with masks a bit like the Carnival of Venice, enjoy the environment, perform artistic productions and the “division” between artists and audience, or stage and audience, does not exist.

The purpose of this event, which normally takes place in June, is to create a show where several performances take place simultaneously and the public is free to participate in all of them.

Body & Soul is a complete experience, with music, gastronomy and 

The event always brings original, differentiated and creative musical performances, with the aim of offering the public a unique and remarkable experience.
