10-15/06/2014 FACT Off Week @ Barcelona 9 271
We are yet again getting closer to the most important week of the year in Barcelona. FACT has prepared an extensive series of events across various clubs and venues throughout the City. The Catalan brand plays on home ground and has spent many months preparing an unforgettable musical journey from Tuesday 10th to Sunday 15th June.
The intense adventure starts on Tuesday 10th of June at La Boîte Barcelona with Purple Inc pres Novus Label. It continues on Wednesday 11th at L´Atlàntida Barcelona with a Saved vs Rejected showcase where head honchos, Nic Fanciulli and Joris Voorn join some of the best electronic music artist of the current scene to deliver the necessary ingredients to make us dance until the early hours. If you prefer more intimate parties, FACT will be hosting the Leftroom showcase — (Matt Tolfrey´s label) at La Boîte or perhaps you will prefer the party that FACT and Los Suruba have organized at Sotavento. As you can see it will be a fun-packed ﬁrst couple of days.
Thursday starts with one of the most talked about events of the week: Mobilée at the FACT Music Pool Series. We continue with another of the biggest events during Off Week: Jamie Jones pres Paradise where FACT and Jamie Jones bring one of the most important brands of the white isle to L´Atlàntida Barcelona. If your cup of tea is Classic House, then you must go to CDLC where DJ Sneak and his gangsters offer some of the warmest and analogic sounds from Chicago. If you prefer electronic sounds in an intimate space, you should pass by La Boîte where Pan-Pot will present their new label Second State. If that still isn’t enough another possibility comes in the form of Snatch Records who will be keeping the dance ﬂoor of Sotavento warm during the afternoon to give way to Stefano Noferini and some of the artists of his label Deeperfect later on in the evening.
Friday will undoubtedly be one of the longest clubbing marathons for the most adept of party goers. Miss Kittin and `her girls´ will be waiting for us in the swimming pool of Music Pool Series from midday and throughout the day/evening with an exclusive female only line up. This brings us onto the night where we will go directly to L’Atlàntida Barcelona for Adam Beyer and his Drumcode artists who will bring us some high quality techno. The other FACT options that complete this amazing day are: Club Of Clubs at Boulevard, Moda Black at CDLC, Überhaus pres Supernature + Miss Kittin & The Boys at La Terrrazza and FACT Limited Edition special at La Boîte with a “TBC” line up is set to be one of the most talked about events of the week in Barcelona.
On Saturday and with little or no sleep, we will head down to FACT Music Pool Series again where Ellen Alien and her Bpitch Control friends serve us a sonic menu full of textures and warm beats. By night, FACT has prepared nothing less than a Cadenza vs This And That showcase with Luciano, Davide Squillace & Friends at L’Atlàntida Barcelona. At the same time, the Cadenza team will also be heading to La Terrrazza to showcase some of their talent whilst CDLC hosts Sharam and his Yoshitoshi label. With the latter you can expect glamour, perfection and high doses of musical quality from one of the members of the legendary Deep Dish.
It will feel like we have been on a rollercoaster of emotions, packed full of intense moments and unforgettable musical experiences but we still have one last lap to go on Sunday 15th June. The last day of insane FACT week starts with Flying Circus and Get Physical at the Music Pool Series followed by the equally tasty Big Titties Surprise presented to FACT by Seth Troxler at L’Atlantida with a spectacular line up. Last but not least we close the week with be a more intimate affair in the form of La Vie en Rose vs Overall Music showcase at La Boîte.
Without a shadow of a doubt, this long and diverse FACT musical journey will be an unforgettable experience that will be remembered for a long time to come. For now, get your best dancing shoes ready, buy yourself a new bathing suit and sit back counting the days until it all kicks off.
