In Barcelona this week, on the one hand, will take place one of the biggest electronic music festival – Sónar, and its sharped line-up. On the other hand, the electronic scene’s elite meets in the Catalan Capital to gather and share multiple senses of the underground party spirit: this is OFF Sónar. And this year all our favorite London party crews are part of the game to make it loud.
Sónar has been celebrating the electronic music for twelve years now – Djs like Jeff Mills, Carl Cox and Aphex Twin, Laurent Garnier or Fatboy Slim were among those praising and sharing the love for their discipline. Yet beyond the official festival, here some undergrounds parties start to pop-up ! Secret clubs, outdoors venues, beach, roofs and pool parties make the encounter in Barcelona between the proper underground artists and a like-minded crowd, from all over the world…
This year, the occasion will for sure not be missing. DVS1 & Rødhåd, David August, Ricardo Villalobos, Dekmantel, OFF Week presents so much choice that you simply have no option other than to operate with a clear schedule (!!) And we are happy to announce that our London party friends will also be part of the mess.
First one to tick off your to-do list: Toi.Toi. and their 6 year birthday celebration, presenting a priceless selection of UK artists including Audio Werner, Dafoe, Hello?Repeat Soundsystem, Ion Ludwig, Lamache, Losoul, Steve O’Sullivan – Mosaic Records, Voigtmann and Daze Maxim to perform on Thursday at the Input High Fidelity Dance Club.
The day after, don’t miss the Percolate very special crew Romare, Dana Ruh, Federico Grazzini, Krywald & Farrer and Bobby Pleasure playing at the wonderful Sala BeCool. Half Baked thus teams up with Lola ED, bringing on Saturday Apollonia along Molly, S.A.M and a live from SIT (Cristi Cons + Vlad Caia).
The same day, Art of Dark will be hosting an open air party with, amongst others, Onur Ozer and Francesco Del Garda. As for Unleash London, they take place on La Terraza alongside Martin Buttrich and Barem… Pure joy!
