Val Sesia River festival


So following a couple of weeks back in the UK after the Pyrenees its off to Italy. A bit late in the season for my liking but when you get asked to DJ at in international River festival in one of your favourite places on earth for kayaking, you don't turn it down.

This is the 2nd Valsesia River Festival organised by friend and kayak nomad Simon Westgarth of Gene17.
It will my 5th? visit to the area in search of granite steeps, gellatto, wine and Pizza.

Here's what they say: "

After years of going to Valsesia, introducing paddlers from all over the world to the steep creeking delights of this perfect slice of Piemonte in Italy, Gene17kayaking will host a completely new white water paddling festival. This Spring we’re run another Valsesia River Festival, situated at the Campsite of il & la Volpe in Campertogno. White Water Kayaking is full of choice, and at this festival you’ll have lots to choose from. The Valsesia River Festival is for all White Water Paddlers, with open races with competitive classes, accessible Steep Creeking Clinics, Photo & Video Clinics too, and to top it all off, some great evening entertainment.
We plan to have the leading lights of the kayaking industry to guide, coach and inspire paddlers, along with leading kayaking brands and a retail presence"
