AGENDA SONAR + OFF WEEK 2016
We are moving towards Sonar week so be ready for a few crazy days full of music and madness. There are thousands of events going on around the city which will be taken by a bunch of international people coming to the festival.
Welcome to Barcelona to all the party animals coming to Sonar and OFF WEEK´16. Electronic Music lovers, here we go!
MONDAY 13TH OF JUNE | OFF WEEK BARCELONA
Together with Sonar there are plenty of parties going on this week from Monday 13th until Monday 20th of June. The main platform to access to all events, Rooftop parties, pool parties, beach parties and showcases is OFF Party Barcelona.
Of course, there will be plenty of after parties waiting for you at the end of every day at Sonar and people giving away flyers everywhere in the city so no worries, party is on!
To open the week you can start with the Monday party at Catwalk from 7pm 😉

TUESDAY 14TH OF JUNE | ON THE TOP ROOF PARTY
I know it´s only Tuesday but if you are lucky enough to be off work or on holiday what is stopping you from a Roof Party?

They start at 3pm but you know people never arrives so early… if you are the unlucky type who has to work in the evening we can always join the party after work. Entrance is only 10€ and you can find some drinks, cocktails, food, and of course, music. What a nice plan for a Tuesday evening!

WEDNESDAY 15TH OF JUNE | GÉNESIS CAPÍTULO IV- PLANTAS BY ZOSEN
I thought this event was way too cool to don’t share it. Metric Market is a place born from an art gallery. They decided to do something completely new and creative and use the theory of Creation to build and decorate their place.

During 2016 they are inviting 7 different artist to create the Génesis (as God created The World in 7 days). In this fourth chapter the artist invited is Zosen, who will decorate the venue making it look as a real jungle together with tropical music and drinks. Love this kind of events!!

THURSDAY 16TH OF JUNE | HALF BAKED RECORDS SHOW CASE OFF WEEK´16
Anybody who likes electronic music and has been to London a few times must be familiar with Half Baked parties, especially if you are Italian…
I had a few great parties with those guys back in London and I am happy to see that they will be rocking it during the OFF WEEK´16.
Put your energy button on because you will need it to survive a week like this one! The guys from Half Baked obviously thought about everything and will start the party in an outdoors terrace to move it later on indoors and party until the sunrise. Damn why do I have to work the whole week??

FRIDAY 17TH OF JUNE | BORN STREET FOOD
It is ok to party hard if that´s the main reason you are in Barcelona but you still need to see the city and have some good Spanish food, right?

One of the oldest neighborhoods in Barcelona is organizing a street food festival from Friday 17ht until Sunday 19th where different restaurants and boutiques from the hood will be selling some of their yummy creations outdoors.
Once you stomach is full and happy I hope you have tickets to see Richie Hawtin at Sonar!
More info about the food festival here.
SATURDAY 18th OF JUNE | 20/20 & POKER FLAT AT LA TERRRAZZA
You cannot come to Barcelona and miss one of the best electronic music places in the city. La Terrrazza is organizing one of those day parties that I love in their magical venue at Poble Espanyol.

Bring your sunglasses, party spirit and energy. Remember you are in Spain, be as friendly and crazy as you want. I love meeting new people and talking to everybody in this kind of parties, so don´t be shy!
P.S: if you are a real “Guiri” probably a bit of sunscreen won´t make any harm.
La Terrrazza has a week full of day and night parties, for more info here.
SUNDAY 19TH OF JUNE | USED + ABUSED WITH CARL COX, LOCO DICE AND ENZO SIRAGUASA
If you are considering to go to this festival and still don´t have the tickets my advice is to buy them asap. Price now is quite high but the line up and the venue is worth it. I saw Carl Cox and Loco Dice a few years ago in London at the SW4 with the Italian gang (there is something about electronic music and Italians) and absolutely loved it!
Poble Espanyol, the event´s venue, is one of the main sceneries this OFF WEEK in Barcelona. We all love the place and parties there are always great so what else can you ask for to the end of the week?
More info about this great party here.
That was the agenda for the week. It is funny because last week I was complaining about feeling old and not partying much lately but after writing this post I feel more than ready to party Monday to Sunday (another subject is that I will do it at the end…). Hope you all enjoy the week with this amazing weather and have the best time of your life.
See you around! ☮ & ♥
