Night of Shooting Stars 
Thursday, August 10th

This day represents the intellectual and scientific side of Madrid with an astronomy exposition. They especially chose this day because our planet is passing the 109/Swift Tuttle´s orbit; a comet that we only get to see every 133 years! This means that this is our grand opportunity to see it and learn a bit about space too. From 20:30 to 22:00 there will be workshops of various astronomical themes and from 22:00 to 1:00 there will be telescope observations! There are also some notable guests that will host short lectures about what you should be looking for with your telescope as well as other astronomical topics. The whole event is free and occurs in the Auditorium inside the Enrique Tierno Galván Park.

From the bowels of the circus, Future animal asks about evolution and involution: are we going towards a more harmonious world with nature or do we evolve towards our most animal part?

Block Party 
Friday, August 25th

 Night dedicated to new sports that are already part of the landscape of our cities, such as parkour or tricking, associated with hip-hop culture. Parkour consists of acrobatic movements through urban spaces overcoming obstacles such as unevenness, fences, gaps, heights ..., without any other means than the impulse of one's own body. Tricking is a flat floor acrobatics practice that combines sports gymnastics, martial arts and break-dance movements, with an aesthetic based on deadly jumps, kicks and turns.

Exhibitions, workshops, DJ's of urban music and concerts.

A mix of electronic and pop music. Coming from the most famous New York nightclubs to Madrid, Christina will amaze everyone with her unique style.
