From the 12 grapes at midnight to the follow morning's breakfast of chocolate con churros, New Year's is a big deal in Spain. For the younger generation, a night on the tiles is a must. Whether it be electro nights in Barcelona or house and techno all-dayers on the outskirts of Madrid, there's plenty to choose from.
Starting with New Year's Eve, Mondo will welcome Michael Mayer to the Spanish capital, with support coming from resident pairing Borderline. Barcelona offers a wider range, with Kerri Chandler spinning at KER Club, Dan Ghenacia turning out for Club4 and party-starting duo 2ManyDJs topping the bill as part of a high-profile event at Teatre Principal on Las Ramblas. For fans of more leftfield sounds, Sex Tags Mania chief DJ Fett Burger will join Cardopusher at Adriantic in the nearby city of Sant Adrià de Besòs, which is easily reachable by road and public transport.
While perhaps not the first place you'd associate with New Year's, Ibiza isn't without a noteworthy party or two. Following on from a record-breaking second season, Music On will throw its first end-of-year bash at Amnesia, with Jamie Jones, Pan-Pot and Leon joining Marco Carola on the Terrace. Meanwhile for the more commercially-minded, Riva Starr has been booked to man proceedings at Pacha.
In the north, Lovejoy will team back up with Oscar Mulero for a bash at El Jardin 2 in Gijón. The Spanish techno veteran has been booked for a three-hour set, with support from Logannn! and Matias Valdmont. At the other end of the country, national treasure Cristian Varela will spin at Paris 15 in Malaga as part of Electroyear Festival.
Rolling on into New Year's Day, it'll hard to look past the inaugural edition of Madrid Winter Festival. Taking place approx. 40 minutes outside of the capital in Moralzarzal, Richie Hawtin, Paul Kalkbrenner, Scuba, Chris Liebing, Loco Dice and Gaiser will all gather for the 15-hour marathon. Also on the outskirts of Madrid, two of the city's heavyweight outfits—Replay and Reverse— will team up for an event at Groove Dance Club. Matthias Tanzmann, Paul Ritch, Technasia and Tom Demac have all been confirmed.
Elsewhere, Elrow and Minus will join forces at KER Club in Barcelona, with Richie Hawtin, Gaiser, Hobo and Matador all on the bill. On the White Isle, Circoloco returns, with residents Jamie Jones, Cassy, Dyed Soundorom, Dan Ghenacia and Shonky performing alongside a rare DC-10 outing from Sven Väth. Tania Vulcano, who's also been booked for Circoloco, will then make the journey to Cadiz, where she heads up an Ibiza-themed affair at Ohju Club alongside Jose De Divina and Pacha resident Angel Linde.

Ron Morelli will headline the ninth edition of Paraleloan on Thursday, December 5th.Post a comment
The monthly Bilbao party has been flying the flag for forward-thinking bookings in the region, playing host to Kode9, Anthony Naples and Bok Bok in recent months. The final party of 2013 will carry a New York theme, with Madteo lining up alongside L.I.E.S. boss Morelli at Kafe Antzokia. There will be no warm-up acts, meaning both DJs will perform extended sets. The party will run from 12.30 AM through 6 AM.

Following the closure of Row 14 in October, Elrow has announced its return to the Barcelona clubbing circuit.
Labelled Elrow City, the new party series will take place at the recently-opened KER Club (which is owned by the people behind Elrow.) In keeping with tradition, the events will run weekly on Sundays, though as clubnights instead of day parties (8 PM through 5 AM.) Nina Kraviz will headline the opening on December 1st, with Mumbai Science and Spanish techno duo Pig & Dan performing on the 8th and 15th respectively. Jamie Jones will drop by on the 22nd, with Bosnia-born Sinisa Tamamovic rounding out the year with an appearance on the 29th.
Richie Hawtin, Gaiser, Matador and Hobo will all perform as part of a Minus-themed Elrow on New Year's Day, before Seth Troxler resumes the Sunday series on January 5th. The party's core team of residents—Toni Varga, Marc Maya, Oscar Aguiler and Raul Mezcolanza—will be on revolving warm-up duty. While Elrow City events will still capture the playful, theatrical essence of the brand, the larger-scale decorations will be reserved for festivals or Elrow Town shows.
Tickets to Elrow City are available here on RA.
