The festival, which reopened on Thursday after a two-year break, offers a range of stalls, art, concerts and shows aimed at young people.
The Urban Food Village, located in the third hall, encapsulates the spirit of the festival: gathering together, listening to conferences, participating and partying.
Peter Hinssen held a conference on Thursday evening on the topics of innovation and disruption in an ever-changing world, while visitors on Friday evening will be able to enjoy a party with Ultraschall Collective. There’s also an escape room and a hidden speakeasy bar.
Morgan Gromy, LuxExpo The Box director, told RTL it was a participative festival above all.
Examples of audience participation include an urban art stand where guests can try out digital art themselves, as well as a street art or skateboarding stand nearby. In Hall 1, BMX lessons by world champion Viki Gomes are on offer, while his colleagues in the international sport will help to stage a show over the weekend.
The Springbreak Festival also offers opportunities for shopping, with around 130 stalls present, including travel agencies. One area is reserved for fair trade clothing, with workshops taking place on the topic. Young local designers have also been given the opportunity to present their wares to visitors.
Finally, for those seeking alternative housing, there is the opportunity to tour a tiny home.
The festival will run until Sunday evening.
