Notwithstanding the above, in order to streamline the continuous rotation of artists and ensure that each of them can enjoy without impediments the stablished times, those technical elements that THE ORGANIZATION understands that can not be replaced for each exhibition due to lack of logistics viability will remain fixed in the different scenarios. THE ORGANIZATION will provide a standard backline, that will remain fixed in every venue, at the service of the different artists and bands involved.
