9. Aqui Contigo todo Madrid @ Fabrik


Let’s celebrate Christmas all together at Fabrik for the A.C.T.M. The lineup is huge, with more than 20 names. That’s why the party starts at 5PM, be ready for your Christmas gift, partying for 12 hours non-stop with 6,000 party people.

When?  Sunday, 25th – 17h / 06h

Where?  Fabrik

8. Catz n Dogz @ Sala Maxime


Go ahead, try to pronounce Grzegorz Demiañczuk and Wojciech Tarañczuk. Yeah I agree, it doesn’t roll out your tongue very smoothly, but the techno / deep house created by this polish duo sure goes down easy. Each track can stand-alone, dancing through the listeners mind; expressing the heart and soul that both producers put into their music, whilst exploring varying styles. This is my Christmas gift for you. Enjoy.

When?  Sunday, 25th – 00h / 05h30

Where?  Sala Maxime

The secret ingredient?  This night will be woof or miaow?


7. Cuartero @ EKHO

After having astonished with his music some wold-famous label such as Desolat or Moon Harbour, and showing the world there is no space for relaxation in his music, the Andalusian DJ will come at Sala Arena for an epic 4-hour set. His music is characterised by a “groove and bass” style mixed with seductive vocal cuts in the pure Hot Creations style, and we like it.

When?  Friday, 23rd – 00h / 06h

Where?  Sala Arena

The secret ingredient?  Cuartero 4h set, you definitely should go take a look.

6. Sonja Moonear @ Sala Maxime


Big up for Sonja Moonear! The Geneva-based producer and DJ will be playing soon at Sala Maxime for our greatest pleasure. There is something positively unorthodox and yet superlatively engaging about the way she puts her sets together, the music she plays falls under what’s often deemed perfectly safe to call ‘house and techno.’ This is gonna be reeaaally good.

When?  Friday, 16th – 00h / 06h

Where?  Sala Maxime

The secret ingredient?  Sonja will bring her good vibes for a unique techno night at Sala Maxime

5. Nicole Moudaber @EKHO


Whether you know Nicole Moudaber for her disorderly and perfect mane or her profoundly hypnotic beats, one thing is certain, she’s the undisputed queen of techno. Did you know she was discovered by Carl Cox? Yeah, in 2009 he said that she was the most underrated DJ and that pushed her on the forefront of today’s international techno scene. Friday 16th. Sala Arena. Do. Not. Miss. It.

When?  Friday, 16th – 00h / 06h

Where?  Sala Arena

The secret ingredient?  The curly haired girl will play some great techno beats, Sala Arena will reverb the kicks.


4. ANNA presented by Vibes @ Goya


You won’t enjoy Thursdays in the same way ever again. Goya brought for a special occasion the Brazilian Anna (ranked 3rd in our top 100 djs in 2016) for a great techno night, in a cozy atmosphere at Goya. Anna released tracks on major labels as Terminal M or Turbo, remixed great artists as Matador or Wehbba and became during the past years one of the best upcoming artists on the techno planet.

When?  Thursday, 8th – 00h / 05h30

Where?  Goya Social Club

The secret ingredient?  ANNA will bring her skills and her hypnotic techno to delight Goya!

3. Alan Fitzpatrick @ EKHO


No doubt Alan Fitzpatrick is one of the most influential electronic artists of the moment. No doubt neither he will make waves in Sala Arena the 9th of December. If you are a lover of strong techno, as Alan is one of the star artists of the label Drumcode and is certainly one of the most consolidated names of the European scene, even more since he created his label, We Are the Brave that will gonna be one of the major labels very soon, I really recommend you to go.

When?  Friday, 9th – 00h / 06h

Where?  Sala Arena

The secret ingredient?  We do what we want with Alan Fitzpatrick on the decks.

2. Joris Voorn, Steve Lawler @ Fabrik Madrid


Well well well… ANTS is back. The legendary crew which owns residencies at Ushuaïa Ibiza is back for an amazing night at Fabrik. It’s a Wednesday but don’t worry, Bank Holiday on Thursday. You’re able to see and enjoy Joris Voorn, Kölsch, Steve Lawler, Andrea Oliva and many others will play for a 10 hours night, so if you’re in Madrid, there is the place to go.

When?  Wednesday, 7th – 20h / 6h00

Where?  Fabrik

The secret ingredient?  Huge line-up and huge sets will be played. Be there or be square.

1. Elrow w/ Joseph Capriati @ Fabrik


Well this is not the first time we recommend an Elrow party, but seriously man, you’d miss this crazy-epic-unique-colorful-mad experience? Many words can be used to describe Elrow, but you have to go to understand,… Anyway, Elrow heads to Fabrik for a crazy New-Year-Eve party with Joseph Capriati, the Napolitan Techno master who doesn’t need introduction. He will be joined by Matador (live), Technasia and Edu Imbernon (who will play in Valencia few hours before for an incredible Fayer session). So let’s celebrate “el fin del mundo” together and start this new year with a big dose of fun in our veins.

When?  Sunday, 1st – 15h / 06h

Where?  Fabrik

The secret ingredient?  Elrow is recognized worldwide as the craziest party + Joseph Capriati + Edu Imbernon + Matador + Technasia = Orgy.

BONUS – WAN festival @La Cubierta

WOW…no words. That’s a fucking insane line-up, with 5 enormous artists in one afternoon: Luciano, Marco Carola, Paco Osuna, Richie Hawtin and The Martinez Brothers. Only one would be an incredible night, but those five together is UN-BE-LIE-VA-BLE. No seriously, it’s an amazing and breathtaking line-up. Imagine yourself in this event, wow. You’ll remember this one for a long time, events like those ones are like an eclipse, it happens rarely and everybody wants to see it.

When?  Saturday, 1st – 18h / 06h

Where?  La Cubierta

The secret ingredient?  UNMISSABLE, and it’s after Christmas, so no excuses.
