To state that Barcelona's OFF-week parties receive a bit of press coverage would be an understatement to say the least. Some of us could recite the day-to-day line ups inside out and back to front.
If you are getting a bit fed up of walking the beaten track, seeing the same line ups and burning holes in the same dance floors, then follow us and descend below the surface of Barcelona and unearth the unsung heroes waiting to be discovered down the city's narrow streets.
Whilst we cannot anticipate such acts of genius as Richie Hawtin doing a last minute set in a fruit and veg shop back in 2015, we have a had a good rummage in the sack and lined up a few diamonds for you to deliberate.
Weds 15th June - Plötzlich Musik goes OFF!
With a lot of promoters throwing their weight around (and quite rightly so) on this date in particular, there's one sure fire way to turn things on their head...a jolly good old fashioned beach party. Berlin based label and booking agency, Plötzlich Musik have ensured a no-hassle hype as they keep the tunes rolling out until 3am on Barcelona Beach. Did we mention it's free?
Thurs 15th June - Jaunt X Dystopian
People from Newcastle and Berlin seem to be extremely sound. This confirms it - Jaunt and Dystopian team up to present a special 'Tears in the Rain' show. Tears of Joy more like!
Vril is kicking about doing a live set and Rødhåd will also be stepping up alongside residents; all coming at you from the intimate loft at Razzmatazz. This is straight-off-the-flight material, if you happen to be touching down on Thursday.
Thurs 15th June - Nick Curly presents Trust Open Air
Nick Curly x Loud Contact x Air London? Yes Please! Nick, Darius Syrossian, Tobi Neumann and Mathias Kaden personify the pinnacle of their respective genres.
Catch the crew at the ZT Villa Olimpica on Thursday afternoon for some truly mind blowing, off-the-grid selections and one of the friendliest crowds you will run into.
Thurs 15th June - 7 years of Toi Toi
In the midst of the mega-cray of the Thursday parties, we may have slightly overlooked London-based Toi Toi Music and their 7th birthday celebrations.
As familiar as INPUT club is, we certainly haven't seen a bill of such status thus far. With a live set from our favourite Romanian, Ion Ludwig, AND a special guest still to be announced, this couldn't be anymore of a dark horse.
Fri 16th June - Back to Basics 25th Anniversary
This little beauty has not been shouted from the roof tops in the slightest.
One of the longest standing nights in house music globally hits Barcelona as part of their 25th anniversary celebrations.
The renowned Basics residents invite One Records lads Shelton and Subb-an to celebrate at the open air venue, La Terrrazza. A very special guest is yet to be announced (like it needs it). Expect double dropping day time vibes.
Fri 16th June - Primes x Snoe Music
We've been gunning for more pool-side parties since off week line ups began to surface...and we must have been praying hard enough!
Take a step out of the sweat boxes and up to the top floor of Barcelona Podium for 11 hours of uncharted-territory. Los Suruba and Pirupa will be showing their faces as part of a marathon from mid day to 11pm.
