Using bold typography and diverse illustrations in a monochromatic deep blue color scheme, their identity proposal combines all characteristic elements of the event such as music, river, nature, dance, food, etc. Furthermore, a wavy graphic symbolises the water of the river as well as the flowing of time. The color palette of pink and blue refers to the atmosphere of a sunset. The event begins in the afternoon and runs until late into the night. Therefore, the color scheme of the headline comprises all shades that the sun takes from the yellow of noon to the purple of a sunset.
