Here's explanation what is it - 

World Youth Day 2011 is a Catholic event expected to be held over six days from August 16 – 21 2011 in Madrid, Spain focused on youths. The event will cost around €50 million, half paid through taxes (at national, regional and local level) and half by private entities, mainly Santander Bank, Telefónica and El Corte Inglés. Pope Benedict XVI revealed the location of the event at the final Mass in Australia at Sydney's Royal Randwick Racecourse during World Youth Day 2008. It will be the second time that Spain will host the event. World Youth Day 1989 was held from August 15 – 20 1989 at Santiago de Compostela. Spanish bishops are urging the Pope to name a patron saint for the 2011 event; they have suggested Saint Rafael Arnáiz Barón, whom Benedict canonized in late 2009.
