Where to sleep

We know that about sleeping at a festival there are different kinds of needs … we are working hard to fulfill them all!


There are people who love to live festivals intensively, who never want to stop sharing and spending every moment together with the other dancers, who want to fully enjoy every minute and every emotion during those three days … well, you can place your mattress and sleeping bag FOR FREE on the wooden floor of the gym Palayuri, at only 5 minutes walking time from the festival venue!
It is located in Via della Repubblica 4, 40068 San Lazzaro di Savena (BO). In the gym there are a dozen WC and two changing rooms (for women and men respectively) with 3 showers each (they are open, so if you need more privacy, you have to bring a swimming suit).
The gym will be usable by the dancers from Friday at 14.00 to Monday at 11.oo. The gym venue will be unattended so we recommend you not to leave any valuable item inside while you are not there.

N.B. If you want to be sure about a place to sleep in the gym, pre-registration is mandatory: Pre-registrations

For those arriving with their caravan, there will be a caravan parking lot next to the Palayuri. Places are limited, so it’s a very good idea to fill out the registration form selecting the option “I’ll sleep in my caravan”. Remember in any case to go to the the cashier at your arrival to check-in.

There are also dancers who are more bent on comfort, though.
