3rd Annual BAFF Festival 26-27 August
August 26, 2016 @ 12:00 am - August 27, 2016 @ 9:59 pm
The 3rd annual BAFF Festival brings you a two-day program at Rotondes!
As last year we will host the “Mam Vëlo op d’Schaff” awards ceremony on Friday evening and combine it with an all new concept of a bicycle second hand Night-Market.
On Saturday we will continue with the bicycle market and offer you all-day Bike Repair Café and Fix Your Bike workshops.
You can experience a historic photo exhibition about Luxembourg’s very own Velodrome during the ’40s and ’50s.
In the late afternoon you’ll get the chance to test your cleverness and abilities during a speedy AlleyCat on the streets of Luxembourg City.
An exciting series of cycling short films will take you on a journey through Transylvania, Tuscany and Spain.
The highlight of the festival will feature an epic contest on bicycle rollers,where participants will compete against each other in front of all the festival-goers. Pedal as hard as you can in order to beat the best times and enter the final knock-out battles.
The festival will be concluded with a DJ-Set afterparty at Buvette.
