Festival Sinsal 2015

Three days, a boat, water. This is a big part of what we already knew about this year’s edition of Festival Sinsal, a small festival which takes place every summer in the even smaller archipelago of San Simón, a couple of islets in the middle of the Ría de Vigo only accessible by boat. The lineup (which is practically the same on the two days of the festival) is unknown to the visitors until the first boat arrives in the island. The fact that Saturday’s tickets sold out some days before the festival hints at the trust that festivalgoers have on the organizers of the festival, the kind people at Sinsal, an organization that has put out dozens of concerts in Galicia (northwestern Spain) during the past eleven years.
