WHAT IS FLASH FESTIVAL?

FLASH is a festival for those seeking boundless freedom and simple, rich pleasures. It’s a heavenly taste of Tuscany savoured over three days of eating, drinking and dancing in a safe, intimate space for all.
Authenticity lies at the beating heart of everything we do. Our food is a sharing board of our own local favourites, housing a mini gelateria, pasticceria, pizzeria, pasteria and osteria to provide freshly made classics served-up with love. We want you to feel part of the famiglia as soon as you arrive, which is why we dine and drink together on a long communal table in the middle of our garden, just like the Tuscans do it.

Everything is washed down with endlessly flowing independent wine. Locally sourced and naturally produced, it eschews additives and synthetic chemicals for a genuine, deep bottling of our local vineyards. We pair the meditteranean food (and sun) with Italo house and disco. Topped with shavings of techno, lo-fi house, local sounds and downbeat, it’s our own take on balearic for a family of festival goers that know each other within minutes.
With a capacity of just a thousand people, all our punters have taken a punt on something special – and we know from their faces at the end and the amount of negroni consumed that it’s paid off.

Treat yourself to the sweet life once a year - we think you might just get a taste for it...

Our Story

FLASH began in 2017 with a vision to bring the Tuscan experience to a small group of revellers from across the globe. Dreamt-up by our co-founder Benedetta Venturini, the first instalment took place with a handful of friends and family dancing together under the morning Tuscan sun, daytime azure blue skies and twilight glittering stars.

The second offering took place in 2019, this time inviting a thousand punters through the gates of our secret garden. To us, though, it was still like partying with our famiglia - some old, others newly forged for life - sharing the same love and freedom that fuelled our beginnings. Our signature serving of authentic food and local natural wine ran alongside sets from the likes of Dan Shake, CC Disco, Chaos in the CBD and Laurence Guy.

Although we were initially optimistic as ever, our 2020 edition was unsurprisingly cancelled. Which makes us even more excited to be back for 2021. If any festival is going to be on, it’ll be us - with strong local ties and a club-sized capacity, we’re ready to welcome a new group of travellers with open arms - and dance with those who have been longing for a party as much as us.

Flash is one big Italian famiglia. We’re staunchly open to all, ready to gather a small group of adventurers in Tuscany every year.

Here are the family spirits that make up Flash:

Beautiful Mamma

Quality with simplicity. Think of us like a beautiful mamma that shows you the finer things in life, teaching you how Tuscan’s eat, drink and live and letting you indulge generously.

Caring Babbo

We get everyone together to share the same values of intimacy, immersiveness, connection with nature and a love of tradition and innovation. You’ll bring a sense of liveliness to Tuscany, and we’ll bring a slice of Tuscany into your lives forever.

Respectful Nonno

We’re open, friendly, inclusive. We’re here to welcome people from around the world, encouraging total openness and being yourself.

Loving Nonna

Share love and you’ll get some back. FLASH is a little community ready to invite you in with a glass of wine and an Italian greeting.

Positive Uncle

Let go and escape the ordinary with free-spirited, like-minded people. Be real, always.
