Monegros Desert Festival 2013 - There Is No Escape, Restricted Area

The Monegros Festival is arguably the most important one-day electronic music event in Spain. Established almost 20 years ago in 1994, it has since morphed in to a festival of the utmost importance, not least because it panders to a number of genres, with everything from discerning techno to cutting-edge house to hip-hop royalty all invited along for the ride.

Indeed, one of Monegros' most endearing traits is that year after year, it continues to improve and compound its reputation. The 2013 edition sees the promoters up the ante further still, as they call on even more esteemed names from a most eclectic and diverse musical palette.

Of course, the prime music attraction at Monegros tends to be 'underground' house and techno. In the house domain, DJ sets from the likes of the Italian Visionquest endorsed duo Tale of Us will take some beating, while over at the techno stage, they've only gone and added Ben Sims, Surgeon, Dave Clarke and Oscar Mulero to the line-up; with every one of the latter sure to compliment the skills of Berghain pair Marcel Dettmann and Ben Klock.

From a Drum & Bass perspective, fans can expected to be wowed by super group, Nero, while Chuck D and Flava Flave's Public Enemy give the line-up a canny smattering of vintage hip-hop. Elsewhere, Monegros is chock-o-block full of A-list royalty, with Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice and a special live set from Underworld – amongst dozens more – among the star attractions in the desert.

Make sure to pack you sun block, as Monegros' 19th edition (taking place this year on the 20th July we hasten to add), might just be their hottest showdown yet.
