More and more each year, the spin-off universe of events around Barcelona's wonderful Sonar Festival - now generally known as 'OFF-WEEK' - grows and grows. Whilst any self-respecting visitor to the city should visit the main Sonar festival at least once, outside of that there has never been more parties and more music to indulge in.
We will be giving you the run down on our favourite parties very soon. In the meantime, we have picked out 5 key sets you need to check out.
The rarity of Björk doing a DJ set has pricked up ears across the board; catch the Icelandic connoisseur playing for four hours at the opening party of Sónar 2017

Mainstay Thomas Melchior joins the One Records crew for the daytime session at the ZT Villa space. Melchior is in extremely high demand in 2017 and his musical nous, combined with the delightful location and full label outfit in support could well lead to one of those "Were you there?" moments.

Matthew will be joined by Radio Slave and Sebastian Mullaert Live for some all out Techno fun.

Quite rightly a night time party at the highly regarded nightclub INPUT, expect to be thrown into a state of flux when the Spanish maestro unleashes fury through his wealth of famed effects units. Buckle Up!
