I will go this year!!! last year's convention was incredible we were 800 jugglers and all of it: main stages, renegade, street performance, olympics.... they were all really fun. I think this year's convention will be even better, it would be nice if some foreigners came to the convention ( last year we had some already... Priam came!  :) )

I've gone the past 2 years and can't recommend it highly enough :D

The place itself is an old factory of 4 floors and operates 24hrs per day

The price of 20 euros includes accomodation (space on a floor for a sleeping bag), breakfast and lunch each day (vegetarian, possibly vegan) and a ticket for the professional show. Much cheapness!

Easyjet do flights there from Stanstead.

All in all, great venue, great city and the bar is open until 5 in the morning!! :D

Unfortunately I am not able to make it this year, but will be back next year.

Great videos and photos.
 :D  :D
I recognize some of the photos and videos. After last year I sent a CD of photos and videos to kukutxa and I am very happy that some of them have been used!!  My good friend Alex (desde Madrid) ( he appears sitting on the sleeping bag at 3:27 in the first video) is a photographer and he took the good photos!!

Thanks for bringing back some good memories, I will definitely be there next year!

Hasta el año próximo
