The FAST Festival (Festival Altempordanès sense Trumfus) was born in the middle of May
2013, with the intention of compensating the lack of interest from the public’s administration for all scenic art that isn’t musical. Apparently, we could think that the crisis
was the reason why the Town Hall has lost the habit of organizing some theatre or magical shows, even during the Town Festival.
Without having an unfavourable opinion of music, conversely, the team organizing the FAST was delighted to have the opportunity to give back all that the scenic art had offered us, during our personal and professional lives.
The organization of the festival is provided by Fast Association (Fanáticos y Amigos Super Teatreros), which is formed by people with a wide experience in the entertainment world, and set up with the aim of diffusing, promoting, presenting and sharing the scenic and performed arts. For this, FAST has created a meeting place for members of the association were they can enjoy these arts and share their experiences, so in this atmosphere Festival Altempordanes Sense Trumfus was born.
The place chosen to carry out the FAST is La Era de Can Gironi de Garrigas (Alt Emporda), one place that provides an idyllic setting from the 27 of June to 20 of July.
We will be waiting for you!!
Words of beneficiaries
The FAST, is a new scenic initiative that pops in an economical and social crisis context. The administrations, with demagogy and using the excuse of the crisis, don’t make things easy. Small businesses haven’t any margin to help the people who are already working hard to get by.
This is why ALCHIMIA FUNDATION have an important role, not only for funding the FAST, but also because they have given us a positive energy injection. They have understood that they are not only the ones with children and family, and that everyone has the right to work in dignified conditions including in the entertainment industry.
Your helpline addressed to social and cultural county initiatives, fits ideally with FAST wills. We try to furnish a scenic space to the companies, with affordable prices for our members, definitely, to share a short moment of happiness.
