I'm glad to hear you are coming! It's going to be an amazing event.
We will have a WikiTent at the Drumbeat Festival (a 'tent' in the
Festival lingo, but most likely a long open hall separated into a few
different areas, including a lower level with a redesigned crypt).
It will be set up for working/hacking on wiki projects (not only
Wikimedia projects). I am helping with space scheduling -- if you or
your group are coming to Drumbeat, let me know (leave me a talk-page
message on meta or on the mozilla wiki), especially if you want to
organize a project or session.
A number of chapters are sending people, including Wikimedia
Deutschland, and of course editors from around Barcelona and across
Spain. The festival is designed to be an event for making things,
not a conference -- and proposals for projects are welcome:
