For those who love to skate, this international skate dance festival is the event of the year. Whether you’re a beginner or a wizard on wheels, the event aims to bring the vibe of big skating locales such as New York or Venice Beach to the Badalona seafront.

Organized by BCN Roller Dance, the festival will offer workshops and music creating the perfect atmosphere for a big party. Music will be provided by DJs playing funk, soul, R&B, hip hop, dub, tech house and more, while the workshops – led by international skaters and organizations – will demonstrate everything from hula hoops and graffiti to dance skate sessions.

Tickets and more information can be found on their website, plus an activities map – get your skates on and book!
