Debuting two years ago, Paral·lel Festival has excelled since its first edition both because of its top-notch lineups and its stunning location. Immersed in nature, the gathering takes place in the pre-Pyrenees mountains, an hour-and-thirty-minute drive from Barcelona, from August 31st to September 2nd: a 35-hour sonic journey into the realms of ambient, experimental and techno with some of the genres’ most iconic representatives.
Worth mentioning are Japanese selector Wata Igarashi; Raster-Noton’s affiliate Dasha Rush, known for her twisted world of neo-romanticism woven with human dream sounds; deep techno master Luigi Tozzi; and Andreas Tilliander performing as TM404, his dubbiest moniker and a tribute to his collection of Rolands.
Rejecting the motto “the more, the merrier,” Paral·lel Festival has a limited capacity of 1,000 people, so hurry up!
