Barcelona players Raum put up some serious competition to Sonar this year with an all-night outdoor rave by the beach on Thursday.
The biggest of all the off-Sonar events, Raum Playa features a who who's of techno with Gabriel Ananda, Jay Haze, Craig Richards, Funk D'Void, Ripperton and Audiofly heading up the bill. There's also minimal from M_nus affiliates Matt John, Ryan Crosson as well as a big German contingent including Dapayk, Axel Bartsch and Benno Blome. The festival will be divided into three stages, including one stage devoted to live sets. There is also a secret Canadian guest: no word as yet as to who the mystery man is, but finger crossed for a big name, eh? Check the event details for the 28-strong lineup and set times.
But it doesn't finish then. Once five o'clock rolls around, get along to the secret all-day afters - a very rare turn of events in afterhours-shy Barcelona. The Octopus Showcase happens from 6 a.m to 6 p.m on Friday with many of the names from Raum Playa doing overtime including Gabriel Ananda, Audiofly, Ripperton, Craig Richards, Dapayk, Funk D'Void and Matt Tolfrey.
