Red rebels, concerts, die-ins: no doubt, the rebellion has begun! It will be colourful, it will be peaceful and it will last as long as necessary.
Every evening, the media team will let you know about what happened during the day. We are super motivated and probably a little tired. But we’re very excited to keep you updated! So stay tuned, join us and share on your social networks.
What happened today
