Barcelona innovators FACT have been core participants in the off-week movement since day one. Many of the best events in the city are helmed by the brand, who have since used Barca as a platform to take their party principles global. 

For off-week 2017, FACT will host 9 events in 4 clubs, featuring over 66 artists. Parties range from Drumcode to All Day I Dream, with a back to back special from Hotflush on the Sunday. Lovely.

As is standard for FACT, the vision remains to create unique and unforgettable musical experiences with old faces and collecting new friends.

Wednesday 14th June - Fact Diagonal Since their famed collaboration on the 80's inspired 'Still In My Heart' remix, Canadian trio My Favorite Robot continue to work with the evergreen stylist Ivan Smagghe.

Art Department's Kenny Glasgow also joins the bill for an evening of what will surely be distorted disco inspired grooves.

Thursday 15th June - DRUMCODE - Fact ClubThe Drumcode crew are back with their earthy techno, and dedicated label boss Adam Beyer is front and centre.

Friday 16th June - Fact Club

Berlin based Watergate team up with Brazil's legendary Warung club and FACT to celebrate 15 years of the Berlin based venue.

With all 3 crews inviting their nearest and dearest on a bumper line, the touchpaper is already lit for a special occasion.

Saturday 17th June - Fact Club

Figure Nacht are seriously bringing the noise to FACT with endless straight up techno.

Saturday 17th June - La Terrazza

All Day I Dream are famous around the world for their outdoor, laid-back parties and meticulous attention to detail. This ideal has been perfectly brought to bear with the choice of venue - the beautiful tree top La Terrazza space, which just happens to overlook Barcelona. It is worth the walk...priceless afternoon fun.

 Saturday 17th June - OW ClubPerhaps one of the most interesting line ups due to the b2b bonanza on the bill, this line up flows through a range of club styles; taking us from house with Scuba and Gerd Janson, right the way through to abstract techno off sets from Berlin lad Marcel Fengler b2b Markus Suckut. 

Saturday 17th June - Fact Diagonal

Last but by no means least, after a whopping four FACT parties on the Saturday, Blakksheep bring a slightly different element to this array, perfecting their already solid line up with old school Chicago frontier DJ Rush, whose first release was back in 1991. Spot on.
