The Fes Festival is gearing up for the opening on Friday, May 6th. Last minute technical, lighting and sound installations in each venue are going to plan and extra precautions being taken in case of the forecast rain
The latest weather update suggests that there will be possible thunder storms on Friday, with a 60% chance of intermittent rain showers in the evening, winds at 10 to 15 kilometres per hour from the WSW and a low of 12 degrees Celsius (54 Fahrenheit). It is certainly going to be a night to dress against the cold.
