New Impressions Festival !
Hello Fellows !
We are thinking on relate the event "nuove impressioni", a cultural event that will take place in Alcamo on the 16th (opening) 17th and 18th of August ( on the 18th and 19th we want to organize some excursions ) , with a big Couchsurfing event (like those ones where we have a lot of fun ;-)...
The festival is a "Kermesse" for young singers, musicians, painters and artists of any kind...the bands are Amor Fou, Black eyed dog, Colapesce and Pier Paolo Marino, and it will be also a theatre show, art and photo exposition !
here the program of the Festival!
it starts off in the central square of Alcamo at Collegio dei gesuiti with an "aperitivo" at 7.00 pm on the 16th of August (Thursday)...
The idea is to do activities during the day in the beautiful area that surrounds Alcamo (check out the group http://www.couchsurfing.org/group.html?gid=43522) like visiting the natural reserve of Zingaro, Segesta, Scopello, hot springs, the harbour of castellammare etc.... and then live it on with some good music at night and party until sunrise !
so just follow us and be ready to rock !
We will provide a site camp in a sports hall with toilet and showers.
so bring with a tent and a sleeping bag if you don't have we'll provide them for you! AIR MATREESS FOR 2 EURO
let us know!
here the facebook page of the camping so we can talk easily about your arrival what you need and maybe someone can give to you a lift from Palermo or Trapani.
See you soon Folks !
**** HOW TO GET TO ALCAMO OR CASTELLAMMARE ???
--- very very easy... there a lot of daily buses to Alcamo from Trapani and Palermo (1 hr. more or less 6€) check out http://www.etnatrasporti.it/ it's segesta company ,
get off in viale europa in front of a grey church ( there you'll find the directions) to reach the camping or in piazza della repubblica (last bus stop ) to go directly to the festival in piazza ciullo.
other public transport :
from palermo to castellamamre by bus
you can take the train from Trapani or Palermo (Alcamo and Castellammare are between Trapani and Palermo) for the same price and get off in Castellammare (the station of Alcamo diramazione is pretty outside the city) ... *****
THERE AREN'T BUSES FROM CASTELLAMMARE TO ALCAMO( 5 km distance) SO THE BEST WAY TO COME IS TAKING THE SEGESTA COMPANY BUS
