The theme for 2019 is "VIBE"

A VIBE is a distinct emotional atmosphere, something felt intuitively and deeply linked to our mood: vibrations that affect you when you meet a person, a memory or an event, visit a place or hear a piece of music.

These invisible waves, positive and negative, influence our experience, they can separate us or connect us.
