El Brunch Electronik de Secà, la festa que ha vingut per quedar-se

La Plaça de les Corts Catalanes de Cervera, popularment anomenada “les Quatre Barres”, va recuperar, Saturday 11 May, la sonoritat electrònica que s’havia sentit en tantes edicions de l’Aquelarre. Es va omplir de gom a gom per celebrar la segona edició de la Presentació del Carnaval de Secà, amb un Brunch Electronik i 12 hores de música electrònica.

Al Brunch, que es va allargar fins a les 23 hours, hi van actuar 8 punxadiscs: Atabey, Miles, Kissingher, ALDO (Aka Te Jodes y Bailas), Samuel Eme, Javi Level i van tancar la nit Edgar DJ B2B Dj Loosap. La jornada va ser un èxit d’assistència, fins i tot amb gent de fora de la província de Lleida, venint expressament a gaudir dels discjòqueis programats.

During the morning, els més menuts van poder gaudir de jocs i activitats a la “Kids Zone”, que va dinamitzar el Consell Esportiu de la Segarra, amb una boníssima rebuda. Unes 100 persones van poder gaudir del dinar popular. Al llarg del dia es va crear un ambient de germanor molt propi del que representa el Carnaval de Secà: una atmosfera festiva, familiar, un públic molt variat, una festa per a totes les edats, inclusiva i alegre.

És la segona vegada que l’Associació Cultural del Carnaval de Secà organitza un acte d’aquesta envergadura per presentar la festa i la sensació general és que, després de l’èxit de la segona edició, és un format que tindrà continuïtat al llarg dels anys.
