It is not easy to organize the Durango Fair, and this year has been, of course, even more complicated, due to the restrictions resulting from the health situation and the uncertainty that all this entails. Anyway, once again, and there are already fifty-six, the biggest meeting between creators and culture fans is here.
Last year, the appointment was virtual, and this year it will once again be possible to buy via computer or mobile phone on the Durangoko Azoka website. The virtual store has been open since yesterday, and you can access it until December 7 to get hold of some of the 990 new items available: 733 books, 143 records, 37 magazines and 77 other types of objects.
But, as we have said, this year, between December 4 and 8, the creators, the workers of publishers and record companies and the visitors will be able to meet again face to face, mask by, in a suitable setting. to the socio-sanitary measures in force.
It will be necessary to reserve a place in advance on the Fair’s website to enter Landako Gunea and the concerts of the Ahotsenea space in Plateruena. Visitors will have shifts of an hour and a half to visit Landako; there will therefore be five shifts of 1200 people each.
Those who want to book, should walk quickly, since some shifts have been exhausted to enter Landako (12: 30-13: 30 and 18: 00-19: 30, on December 4; 12: 00-13: 30 on 5 December…) and to attend some of Ahotsenea’s concerts (Bulego, Anari, Skakeitan, McOnak, Iheskide…). The concerts, however, and as a lesser evil, can be followed in streaming through eitb.eus.
It will be mandatory to wear the mask at all times, and you will not be able to eat or drink. In addition, in Plateruena there will be no hospitality service.
It will not be necessary to reserve a place in the other spaces: Ahotsenea Music School, Irudienea, Kabi @, Saguganbara, Szenatokia and Talaia.
