The event was first held in 1985 in a circus tent at the height of the counter-cultural movement in Spain known as the “Movida Madrilena” marking the emergence of a new wave of Spanish culture during the country’s transition to democracy following the 1975 death of dictator Francisco Franco.

Now it takes place in a sprawling convention center.
