Purple Weekend is a music festival dedicated to the sixtie culture that takes place in León, Spain. It was created by Elena Iglesias and Alejandro Díez (artists of the band Los Flechazos) in the late 80s. It has grown over the years to become one of the main international events of the genre.
The festival was born with the idea of delving into the mod movement (which originated in the UK between the late 50s and mid-60s). The Purple Weekend lasts 4 days and features several renowned artists linked to mod culture, mainly Spanish and British.
It is not only a music festival, but also offers other activities such as the Scooter Run, conferences, exhibitions, street markets, fashion shows, etc.
