Instructions on how to arrive on Fundació La Plana website
To arrive to la Plana we recommend to come by car. Don’t worry once you are registered there is a spreadshit to facilitate shared rides. To leave the Plana we will give official space to organise shared rides.
Once you have registered you will receive a link to the ride-share board for the festival. Please support us in reducing the environmental impact of our event by where possible sharing rides to and from the festival.
To facilitate travel to the festival venue the event will provide shuttle from Cabrianes the 3th of September at 16:00.
In this case you also have to fill out the ride share sheet (link provide after you register) so you are guaranteed a sit in the shuttle Cabrianes – la Plana.
Rides to go back home will be organised at the festival (including the shuttel to BCN bus).
More info about Public Transport
From Barcelona to Santa Maria d’Oló there is a bus. More info
Another option is to arrive from Barcelona to Manresa by public transport:
- Bus Monbus (BCN Ronda Univeristat, Bcn Zona Universitària… -> to Manresa Estació d’Autobusos)
- FGC R5/R50 (Barcelona Plaça Espanya -> to Manresa Estació d’Autobusos)
- Renfe R4 (Barcelona Sants or Plaça Catalunya or Sagrera -> to Manresa). Once you are at Manresa Renfe station you will have to walk (40 minuts), take the local bus L8 (the bus stop is next to the train station on the other side of the river) or take a 5 minuts ride taxi (they are wainting next to the train station) to Estació d’Autobusos
From Manresa take the bus Manresa-Santa Maria d’Oló at the Estació d’Autobusos in Manresa
Once you are at Santa Maria d’Oló you will have to walk for some kilometers. So we really recommend use the shared rides system that facilitates the Festival once you have registered so we can organise the lifts.
