His friend and peer Mirko Loko will also join proceedings plus Viennese DJ Flo Real, with the party set to take over the stunning Monasterio venue that’s situated at the highest point of Poble Espanyol and boasts panoramic views across Barcelona. 

Continuing to push forward the new generation of techno, Amelie Lens will return to Carpa & Picnic with her lauded Exhale imprint. Joining her is Dax J, bringing his individual style of raw and uncompromising techno to the pine-filled outdoor space. Also confirmed is rising Belgian artist Farrago – having released their debut EP on Amelie’s LENSKE label in 2018 – as well as Kobosil and Modular Gang founder Rachel Lyn

Running as the companion event to Sónar festival to create summer’s most anticipated party week in Europe, OFFSónar offers four days of parties for the most discerning lovers of house and techno within the backdrop of the vibrant city of Barcelona. Blessed with 4 kilometers of sandy beaches, the cosmopolitan city is a hub of culture, art and nightlife, and with OFFSónar’s setting of Poble Espanyol cradling three iconic  venues, is not to be missed. The series has also confirmed events from Circoloco, Drumcode, and an OffSónar special with Paul Kalkbrenner & Boris Brejcha, with more details, line ups, and two more events still to be revealed.
