In 2009, 18,000 people attended to celebrate the diversity of European culture in all its forms. Acts perform in the street, in car parks, on stages, under tunnels and railway arches as well as in 6 venues on the festival site. Most of the festival site is covered, so whatever the weather, it’s going to be a special couple of days!

For an idea of what the festival is like, watch the Eurocultured 2009 video here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohgWqVoMxf8
