After the opening night, one of the world’s most renowned festivals of electronic music moved a few miles down the road to the coastal resort of Puntizela and Fort Punta Christo. Here, party goers and dance music fans could relax by the sea, enjoy themselves and prepare themselves for the night of music ahead.
