In the 2006 festival, the main stage (Palco TMN) had such acts as The Prodigy, Daft Punk, Zero 7 (with José González), Brazilian Girls, Long Beach Shortbus and Madness, among others. The second stage (Mundo Sudoeste) featured Breakestra, Afrika Bambaataa, José González, and many others. The style of the second stage is more alternative than that of the main stage.
