Brunch in the City has already got off to a flying start during the spring season, and as many techno fanatics may know, Brunch in the Park is just around the corner…
Continuing on from the same concept as the Brunch in the City series in Poble Espanyol, Brunch in the Park will instead be held in the Jardins de Joan Brossa of Montjuïc, and what a wonderful location it is! Taking place every Sunday this summer and with the biggest names in electronic music to take the stage, this is a massive summer event in Barcelona, and is certainly not to be missed.
Last year brought plenty of top DJ’s to Barcelona such as Marco Carola and Hot Since 82, and this year will be no different! The organisers of this summer’s Brunch in the Park series in Barcelona have curated fantastic line ups (so far) featuring some of the biggest and best names in electronic music.
Jardins de Joan Brossa
Located up Montjuïc, in Barcelona, in the area between the Montjuïc funicular and the Montjuïc castle, the Jardines de Joan Brossa make the perfect open-air space for a summer day party. Once an amusement park, this Mediterranean green space offers plenty of space to enjoy the summer sunshine whilst dancing to your favourite music!
To get there, take the metro to Paral·lel (L2 & L3) and the Jardins are a short walk away, or alternatively you can take the bus (lines 55 & 150) which takes you closer to the venue.
Although up to now, only 2 headlining acts have been released, the organisers have definitely given us a taste of what to expect throughout the Brunch in the Park season. Brunch in the Park #1, the opening party, (01/07/18) brings us Paul Kalkbrenner, from Berlin. A huge name in electronic music, with seven studio albums and more than 2.3 million Facebook fans, he is known for being one of techno’s biggest superstars and will be sure to bless the Jardines de Joan Brossa with one of his incredible performances.
Brunch in the City #4 (22/07/18) brings us the one and only, Carl Cox. Known as the King of Ibiza, Carl Cox is a musical ambassador and an inspiration to many up and coming electronic artists. So far, this is Carl Cox’s only date in Spain for 2018, meaning it’s one certainly not worth missing!
Many more acts are TBA and the full line-up will be released in June. For further information regarding line-ups, see Brunch in the Park’s official website.
Family Friendly Fun!
Brunch- in the City is not only an event for young twentysomethings looking to party, it’s also a great family friendly event, especially during the early afternoon hours. Brunch- in Barcelona put a lot of effort into ensuring that families with children have a great time at their events! Petit Brunch is an area of the festival designed specifically for the little ones, where they can enjoy plenty of fun activities, games and workshops… a fun weekend outing for the whole family!
Looking after the Environment
Another great thing to note about Brunch- In Barcelona’s events is that they most definitely do their bit for the environment! They have an initiative where you purchase a plastic cup for €1 at the start of the day and use this for your drinks throughout the event. Then, once the cup is returned at the end, you are refunded your money and the cup can be used for future events. Or, if you prefer, you may keep the cup as a memory of the party – just don’t chuck it away! Additionally, straws are not given out at the event for environmental purposes. It’s nice to see that Brunch- In Barcelona are doing their part to help look after the planet!
Stay in the heart of Barcelona
Now you’re clued up on Brunch in the Park, get your friends together, head to Barcelona and get involved in the action! Stay in a centrally located apartment, the perfect place to rest your head after a long day of partying and enjoy your own privacy.
