A location, full of incredible spiritual importance that completes Wakana Lake Reunion´s philosophy: the real meaning of a community (reunion) and the reencounter of our essence with nature (well-being).
CONTEMPORARY ART & ARCHITECTURE
As another of the fundamental pillars of Wakana Lake Reunion during the three days of the event, an attractive artistic proposal will be offered where renowned international artists and galleries will exhibit and auction their urban and contemporary art works, in collaboration with the platform Koyac and located inside the Main gallery: Wakana Lake Museum, in a typical Andalusian country house. Projections of visual art, outdoor facilities, scenographic art and performances will complement the art section of the event.
At the same time, architecture will complement the already magical location of the festival with original settings and structures, hand in hand with the ZULOARK and Ensalada Works studios.
Wakana Lake Reunion program offers sports and water activities during the day, such as kayaking, paddle surfing, water skiing; Ayurvedic massages, yoga sessions and a variety of workshops.
In addition, Wakana Market will offer different options, such as vintage clothing and accessories, or hairdressing and makeup stands.
Finally, Wakana Lake Reunion will honour the highly recognized gastronomic area where it is located, by offering daily menus and local quality food such as retinto beef or the famous almadraba tuna. This will allow to charge the body with the right energy while enjoying the festival´s insane cultural offer.
Faithful to Wakana Lake Reunion´s differentiation from big size festivals, exquisite and original accommodation options are offered to enjoy the event to the fullest.
