Information

WOS Festival is an annual indoor event that takes place in September in different spaces of high heritage value in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. The festival presents a broad multidisciplinary programme with a focus on electronic and avant-garde music, visual arts, film, installations, workshops and conferences. The festival experience constitutes a true artistic, touristic and architectural route through a city with a World Heritage Site Old Town.

The event defends a broad vision of alternative culture that allows to approach it from multiple perspectives, hosting in its programme innovative proposals around risk and exploration where leading international artists play a leading role in unique contexts, thus creating an unrepeatable atmosphere in each activity. WOS Festival is a project of the creative agency specialised in cultural management WORK ON SUNDAY and was born in 2016 with the aim of becoming a reference event at international level.
