What a Weekend in Valencia City!

There was so much on in the city this weekend that it was hard to decide what to miss!
Friday Night was Eclèctic Nit at the City of Arts And Sciences, a mix of street theatre, spectacle and music from 7pm until the early hours of the morning. We had great fun watching flaming horses, performing snails, Japanese drummers, and then took our seats for DO-DO LAND de Puja, an aerial ballet to rock music. The highlight of the evening was an inspired performance from Cuban rappers Orishas.
Saturday was Formula 3 and GT racing at the new Valencia Urban Circuit. This weekend was the dress rehearsal for the Formula One Grand Prix in August. full report here
Saturday evening it was up to Canet beach to see how the Electrodomestico Festival looked. NOT VERY BUSY, we counted no more than 50 people at the live bit whilst we were there, shame, because the band playing whilst we were there were quite good.
Sunday evening it was back to City of Arts and Sciences for the Australian Pink Floyd show. The music was note perfect and excellent but the show lacked excitement and didn't take full advantage of the fantastic setting.
