Morning Flight (out of competition)
The flight field is located on Catalunya Avenue (formerly NII). Coordinates - 41.585672, 1.627397
For safety reasons, drones cannot fly over the flight field during the duration of the Festival without permission from the organizers.
Flights take place early in the morning (6:30 AM) and late in the afternoon (7:30 PM), as these are the times of the day when the weather conditions, particularly the wind, are most optimal and stable for flying. In case of strong winds or abrupt changes, flights may be canceled for safety reasons. Depending on the direction and strength of the wind, there is also a possibility of relocating the take-off to another location in the city with better conditions. Stay tuned to the festival's social media channels (@ebf_igualada) for real-time updates on any such incidents.
City Flight: On Friday morning, there will be a city flight where different balloons will depart from squares and public spaces. You can choose to witness the balloon's ascent from these areas or from a privileged spot in the Conca region.
