How to participate
Any group of gymnasts can take part, no matter what nationality or age or technical level, as long as it consists of at least 10 people and the performances are accompanied by music.
The participation in the Festival del Sole is necessarily tied to the purchase of the hotel package we’ll offer at very convenient prices.
All participants will be staying in Riccione’s renowned hotels for the whole week at very affordable prices
The package consists of 7 days/6 nights from Sunday June 28th to Saturday July 4th, 2020 in full board accommodation (breakfast, lunch and dinner).
There will be two price tiers depending on the choice of the hotel category: we’ll announce the prices for this edition in July 2019 during the World Gymnaestrada in Dornbirn.
In addition to the cost of the hotel package there will be a small registration fee that will grant each participant the following benefits:
- Personal “Festival Pass” for exclusive access to all the Arenas and night parties
- Free admission to the Opening and Closing Ceremonies and to the workshops
- Official Festival t-shirt
- Discounts and facilitations for theme parks, clubs and restaurants
Special offer for big teams
We want to reward big teams participating in the Festival del Sole, so we’ll have a special offer for them: every 25 registered participants we’ll award you one free hotel package (the 26th person will stay for free).
The performances of the participating teams will take place in especially made exhibition Arenas on the promenade of Riccione.
Each Arena will be equipped with floor exercise mats (12x12 m to 18x15 m depending on the Arena), 20 cm AirTracks, mini-tramps, landing mats, changing and storage rooms, audio systems, stage lights and free seats for the audience.
A full list of the equipments available will be provided to the teams upon registration.
Each team will have the chance to perform twice in the evening, plus a third afternoon exhibition (on request) and during the Closing Ceremony
The duration of each team’s performance is determined as follows:
- 7:30 minutes for teams up to 20 people
- 10 minutes for teams of 21 to 40 people
- 15 minutes for teams of 41 or more people
Rehearsals will be held in the morning following the same program of the evening show.
