Tribos the alternative stage was in front a beautiful lake where people chilled and had fun. In this area I found peace and many styles of music.

Kobi from Loud played a great Techno set. Ryanosaurus played his side project Electrocado. There were Kalya Scintilla, Bayawaka, D-Nox, James Monro, Quake, Marco Lisa, Murilo Ganesh, Thiago Pinheiro, Kadum, Fabio Leal and many more.

People came from all corners of Brazil: Bahia, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro and Brasília. I saw people who came from Argentina too. Everybody was happy, hugging and smiling all the time.
