The mobile ComboCombo Band, which accompanied the guests between the show acts and the festival hall with a wide range of live music, provided the right atmosphere.
At both locations the smaller guests enjoyed the children's program with hand tattoos, goal wall shooting, bouncy castle and football table.

At the end, great prizes awaited the participants of the raffles.
