By both getting to know each other and having a taste from the Catalan cuisine, a meaningful first experience of the festival was made. After the lunch, the artists arrived to the village of Les Escaules to be welcomed by the warm smiles of the residents. With the arrival of both the artists and spectators Joan Casellas, who is the creator of La Muga Caula initiated the start of the 12th official edition of the festival. Spending time sociliazing and catching up from the old times by the companz of champaigne, cips and other appatizers, village residents were prepared for the first performances of the festival. The performances started with Joseph Sou's frenzied act followed by Dolors Miquel's passionate poems. With the end of the feast for the heart and the soul, the feast for the stomaches has started. Humus, rice and delicious sauces were served by the volunteers. As a finish to the night, the crowd was invited to perform their own 1-minute long acts. With astonished noises of the crowd due to the many different colorful performances, the night was closed with a special act dedicated to La Muga Caula with 35 participants reading 3 different lines either in Catalan or English. The sounds of full stomaches and fed spirits left the the big hall.
