The concept of the event is based on a combination of opposing phenomena: the ceremonialism of social gatherings meets the mass entertainment industry, the refined aesthetics of haute cuisine meets the simple, colorful codes of street food. High and low in culture are almost always intertwined: what is considered a privileged aspect of the chosen few is gradually transformed and made accessible to the masses, while the counterculture often penetrates the upper classes and becomes an exceptional detail, a gimmick, a rediscovered luxury item.
