Festival was officially opened at the evening party in the "Klimat" Club. Artists of the festival were introduced and then the fun that lasted until morning started. The biggest attraction of the evening was a concert of Ricardo Alvarez "Cubanisimo".
   Saturday workshops also were very popular. Crowds of women especially followed the divine Yanet Fuentes. After the classes participants went to watch shows of Stargate competition in the category show style in the hall on the Market. Unfortunately, the weather played a trick on everybody and shows could not be held in the open air. The competition was won by Pati Laskowska formation Mucho Flow Crew. Evening Gala began with the show of Oye rueda performance group, which warmed up the atmosphere before the shows performed by Cuban artists. And again, the party lasted until dawn.
   During Sunday workshop it was less crowded, some participants was sleeping off the late night partying. But all participants came at the end of the classes to pose for a common picture. Artists had a surprise - short improvised show to popular non-salsa hits, including Polish, and later grabbed everybody to join dancing. Santiago Hernandez also sang his new hit song "A mi Yemaya". Nobody wanted to leave and dancing lasted long. However eventually it was necessary to go freshen up and relax before the last party. During the party formations starting in Stargate gave shows and later everybody together with artists partied till morning. There was a lot of animation and laughter. Participants were sorry to leave when at six a.m. party had to finish.
