Barcelona arrives in October with these 10 must-attend parties

Barcelona has lived a dream summer. Amazing festivals, nightclubs that have not ceased their efforts to program better than ever and, overall, a night and daytime scene that has established itself as one of the most attractive on the European scene. It’d be normal to think that some pause is coming together with the month of October, at least until Halloween. Well, this is not going to happen. It has been difficult for us to design this list and we had to leave out really big names. These are, in any case, the 10 best electronic music events you can find in the city during October. We hope to see you around!
