Often people rent a flat in Barcelona to of course visit the city, but also to attend one of the many music festivals held here through out the summer. Barcelona has grown to be known as the home of some of the most famous music festivals, with big headliners coming through town all summer long be it for Sonar or other festivals like Curilla. These festivals not only add to the effervescence that takes over the city during the summertime but they also make the already hot summer days the hottest place to be in Europe! This year for the very first time the DGLT festival which, already, has made a big name for itself in the electro music world is expanding itself and has found a second home here in Barcelona.
The festival itself originated in Amsterdam and was considered to be one of the kickoffs to the European festival season. It was ranked as one of the top 10 international festivals this summer by the reference magazine of the electronic world “DeepHouse Amsterdam”. The DGLT Barcelona which has yet to happen for the very first time this weekend is already ranked as the 4th best summer festival worldwide this year thanks to its incredible line up.
The festival takes on a different approach to others with a very green and sustainable take on the event. During the Sonar weekend, in order to help maintain the environment clean in spite of the thousand of tourists that were in the city for the event, the DGLT team organised a beach clean up on Barceloneta beach, where all volunteers were given free weekend passes to their festival. Every year the festival picks a revolution-theme that is in alignment with their aim for sustainability, showcasing innovation relevant to that theme. Last year’s theme being plastic waste the festival provided information on revolutionary alternatives to our current ways, and created awareness about how this theme influences our ecological footprint.
During the festival itself not only will you be experiencing your favourite electro DJ’s and a spectacular light show to accompany them but food trucks of some Barcelona’s best restaurants will be present!
This festival is an event not to be missed with some of the best current electro DJ’s headlining. With our apartments for rent all over Barcelona it has never been easier whether you come as a big group or just want something in the Sant Marti area to be close to the DGLT festival itself!
