The Palo Alto Market is back on February 6 and 7, and this time with a theme that pays tribute to the free and independent spirit of 'On the Road'. This edition brings together authors, brands and products that conjure the attitudes, re-create aesthetics and personalise objects of heroes of the road.
Alberto García Alix is on hand to sign his latest book, 'Moto', on Saturday and Sunday from 5pm to 6pm. El Solitario, a legend among those who build custom motorbikes, including Fuel Motorcycles and Gori de Palma among others, show off their latest creations. Aiquza presents sophisticated Hedon helmets, Helston leather jackets and radical clothing from Fleurs de Bagne inspired by 1940s French prison attire.
You'll also get a premiere look at the new Ducati Scrambe 400 as well as the Triumph Street Twin. Yamaha shows of its new line of retro bikes and Faster Sons outdoor clothing.
The soundtrack for the weekend is a mix of soul and funk with Susana Abellán & Friends, and Mel Seme at the Aperol Spritz Club; rockabilly with Anita O'Night & The Mercury Trio at the Vichy Catalan Be Chic terrace; and a concert by Kinsale with their pop/Irish folk at Torres Los Meridatges.
Bring your kids, and they can go to 'Exotic Places' with Cristina Martín Pardo, a workshop where boys and girls build fantastic stage sets with cardboard that they can then use with motorised puppets.
When you're feeling the need to refuel, grab a bite from some of the world food on hand: Indian from Masala 73, Mexican from Corazón de Agave, potato goodies from La Internacional, fried fish from the Med at Peixiets las Encats, and much more.
