FreedomXFest is the first outdoor festival/conference gathering the key players of the location independent movement and 1,000+ attendees.
The festival will have different sections devoted to the future of work, entrepreneurship, global schooling and other topics. The speeches and workshops will be combined with fun activities.
There will be speakers from Escape the City, TimeDoctor, Doist, Facebook, E-Residency, CrossOver, and other organizations.
And because it’s a festival that celebrates the remote lifestyle, then why not be in a remote setting? The festival takes place in a remote village in the Spanish Pyrenees for the exclusive use of the event.
