Difficult. Not looking towards Madrid this July seems difficult. And we have other cities facing big appointments (as the case of Barcelona with the OFF Week). But Madrid has nothing to envy. The capital of Spain has one of the best clubs in the country (Fabrik) and one of the most interesting and attractive Sunday concepts of the national scene. These are the 5 best parties to dance to electronic music this July in Madrid.
The deep and melodic sounds of house will be better represented than ever on this Saturday night at Goya. Álvaro Medina will be in charge of showing, all night long, what the Black Wood label has been cooking. An ideal night for diggers looking for sounds far from the usual.
When: Saturday, July 13th
Where: Goya Social Club
Lineup: Álvaro Medina
Camelphat’s groove sound jumped to stardom with his big hit “Cola”. Since then, this British duo has been performing at every major festival on the scene, leaving not a single must for later. With them, Fabrik will dance on Sunday afternoon in a new Natura Sunday. Not to be missed.
When: Sunday, July 21st
Lineup: CamelPhat, David Medina, Acid Wednesdays, Jorge Martin b2b Carlos Abarca and Cristian Cárdenas
Natura Sunday is the new party that makes Fabrik the place to be also on Sunday afternoons. The American Green Velvet will be in charge of keeping it high on July, 7th.
