Information on space for spending the night

It will be possible to sleep on the site, in the rest area intended for this purpose, from the night of the 24th until the night of the 27th. Therefore, the site must be abandoned on the 28th after the event has ended and it will not be possible to spend that night there.

Tents and mattresses that do not meet the conditions set out in the Participation Rules may not be installed, unless there are justified reasons which have been exceptionally authorised by the organisation.

We expect that if all you respond to this request we will not have difficulties of space. Thank you for your cooperation in advance.
