Río Babel is held from July 4 to 6 at the Feria de Madrid and the three-day ticket costs 71.50 euros.
And from the refreshing rhythm of Rio Babel we passed the Jardín de las Delicias Festival 2019, a multidisciplinary bet that celebrates on September 21 its second edition in the Cantarranas Sports Complex and that includes different artistic expressions and the direct one by Andrés Suárez, Coti, Bely Basarte, Marlon or Guitarricadelafuente.
