Music Editathon in Girona

Event poster

Enderrock awards are one of the biggest awards related with Catalan Pop Rock Music. On February 27 we celebrated an editathon in a Girona Public Library to better document the awards, the bands and pop rock music in general. The awards ceremony takes places in Girona, this is why organization decided to contact a local library to host this event. About 20 people participated and worked tirelessly to complete information and created/expanded new entries related to these musical awards, the list of the 50 best albums in the history of pop Catalan rock or have expanded the information that was on the internet about musicians as Xavier Cugat, coinciding with the activities planned to celebrate the Year Cugat.

The goal of the initiative, co-organised with Enderrock Group, was to raise awareness about the fact that Wikipedia is created and maintained "by all" and that everyone can participate improving the related articles of the bands they love. It was an all day event. +info at project page (in Catalan)
