Heineken Jammin' Festival 2008
From 20 June 2008 to 22 June 2008
Last years festival was brought to a sudden and unexpected halt owing to freak weather conditions, and the mayor of Venice has stressed the importance of co-operation with the organisers for this years event, thus ensuring the confirmation of using the San Giuliano Park as the venue once again.
I followed last years events as a person, not only as the mayor, and I could see the passion, hard work and pain of the organisers. And this gave birth to the sympthy in the literal sense of the term between us. I am convinced that this year the organisation will be perfect as it was last year, despite what happened. The participation of the city and its administrators will be unanimous, because everyone involved wants the memory of the Heineken Jammin to be what it should be.
The president of the municipality of Mestre-Carpenedo has given much thought to the services available on the basis of last years disaster: the public services involved are working to be able to guarantee 25,000 parking places in public and private areas within a 2km radius of the park, are collaborating with Trenitalia concerning the logistics of those arriving by train (given that last year 30% of the visitors used this means to arrive and around 2-2,500 camping places organised by the Comune of Forte Marghera and Forte Bazzera in addition to the 1,500 available within the festival grounds itself.
Furthermore the president of the municipality continued information points will be provided along the principal points from the station to the park, giving information regarding the festival conditions and other useful logistical information. Alll of this is thanks to the contributions of many local voluntary associations, confirming the participation of the entire city in this event.
