ITHAKA Festival is an experimental, electronic music festival that will take you on a sensory journey to one of the most breath taking locations in Spain: an old Arabic, abandoned fort that is surrounded by a lake and nestled in the heart of a natural region north of Cáceres (Extremadura, Spain).


This could not be a more idyllic setting for the first edition of ITHAKA Festival to play out in. The 9th century, Arabic, walled village has been uninhabited since the 60s and is like the land that time forgot. Here, we will break the traditional link between electronic music and urban nightlife, and experience new sounds, new sites and new feelings.


Two of the principal pillars of the festival are diversity and sustainability. We want to create a safe space in which we will champion inclusion, diversity and equality by representing a truly eclectic mix of backgrounds, cultures, genders and genres, on and off the dance floor.
