OFFSónar has revealed it’s first batch of line ups for this year's edition and we’re already buzzing.
Running concurrently to the Sónar Festival, the OFFSónar parties are always a huge deal. Running across four days, this year 18th - 21st June, they take place within the unique open-air Poble Espanyol complex. This year they’ve locked in some mad showcases from the most cutting edge labels and groups in the industry with Innervisions, Detroit Love and Exhale all confirmed, and this is only the first wave to be announced!
Detroit Love and Exhale are both set for Thursday 18th. Carl Craig will be taking the reigns of Monasterio. A beautiful venue boasting panoramic views across Barcelona. Though it’s inside where the real magic will be taking place as Carl Craig is joined on the decks by Mirko Loko, Moodymann and Flo Real. They’ve also sorted two massive live sets from Inner City and Octave One. At the same time Belgian techno steward Amelie Lens and her Exhale label return to Carpa & Picnic. She’s bringing the heat with a mouth watering line up featuring Dax J, Farrago, Kobosil and Rachel Lyn.
The biggest part of this first wave is the mind-blowing Innervisions takeover. They’ll be in control of the entire Poble Espanyol complex on Sunday 21st and have a line up feels like a dream come true. Featuring no less than 20 artists for a showcase to end all showcases complete with back to back specials, live sets and some of the leading selectors on the planet right now. Some highlights for us include the mammoth back to back to back session with ÂME, Marcel Dettmann and Rødhåd; Trikk, Dixon and another back to back between Daniel Avery and HAAi.
OFFSónar has also announced three takeovers from Circoloco, Drumcode and Paul Kalkbrenner & Boris Brejcha. The line ups for those are yet to be revealed, but OFFSónar looks like it’s already gonna be one of the biggest editions yet.
