Berlin-based Mobilee Records is back on Barcelona soil in August with another sun-drenched session at The Gates Diagonal rooftop (formerly known as the Silken Diagonal). Now a firm favorite among locals and tourists since becoming a regular residency, this one is guaranteed to pull an avid, music-savvy crowd.
The monthly series kicked off at the end of April, and joining the pack of artists who’ve provided the dancefloor damage are long time Watergate resident Matthias Meyer and Mobilee’s secret weapon, Ralf Kollmann. Mobilee’s trademark synthesis of innovative house and techno is complemented by the hotel’s stellar Funktion-One sound system and spectacular views. A limited capacity ensures an intimate crowd with whom to share the great music, laid-back vibe, cold drinks and sunshine.
If advance tickets sell out some are usually available at the door at opening on a first-come, first-serve basis.
