The clocks have sprung forward an hour and the sun has begun shining that little brighter, Barcelona has been catapulted into spring — and is celebrating with the fifth edition of popular electronic-minded music and street food festival, SoundEat.
Taking place on the edge of the Mediterranean this time, at Plaza Leonardo da Vinci (which is part of Parc del Forum, the location that will later play host to Primavera Sound and the Catalan capital’s edition of Dutch electro festival DGTL), there’s a tasty line-up of both food trucks and danceable beats for this latest ten-hour session of revelry.
Bons Records label owner Pau Roca will kick off proceedings with a three-hour B2B set with MLiR; Foals keyboard player Edwin Congreave will be spinning some choice tracks; electronic duo Detroit Swindle will take to the stage and run the crowd through a musical journey that spans disco to house; and 21 year-old Berlin prodigy Max Graef will close the festival with his fresh take on vintage house spliced with the sort of funk, jazz and hip-hop that has seen him put out albums on labels like the highly-esteemed Ninja Tunes.
Taking place this Saturday, 8 April, from midday until 10pm, SoundEat will also keep budding ravers amused with a series of kids’ activities; whilst a variety of the city’s finest food trucks are on hand to serve up everything from wood-oven-cooked pizzas to Californian and Peruvian street food from We Heart favourites Eureka Street Food and Warike respectively.
Tickets can be purchased online now at 7€ (10€ on the door).
