DESPACIO returns to Sonar. James Murphy and the Deawele brothers will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the festival by giving us another three memorable days of music at Sonar Day. Yes, three days: Thursday, Friday and Saturday, in the same location as before, again creating the perfect clubbing space at Sónar. In case anyone missed it in 2014, DESPACIO can be defined as an unprecedented experience designed to celebrate the act of listening to music in a club, shifting the focus of the stage towards the music itself, so that the protagonism falls on the audience, the quality of the songs and the sound.
Several elements are essential for this. One is the circular soundsystem, consisting of a series of loudspeaker towers and amplifiers three meters high each, arranged in a circle and with more than 50,000 watts of power. Another is the space: a reduced capacity space inside the Sónar by Day venue in which to comfortably enjoy the experience. And finally, and most importantly, is the music: James Murphy (leader of LCD Soundsystem, who will perform at Sónar de Noche) and David and Stephen Dewaele (2manydjs, also in this year's programme, at Sónar de Día), will choose tracks from their favorite vinyl, playing music from all periods and styles for 6 hours straight, with the knowledge and good taste they have always shown throughout their respective careers.
Those who have been there already know, and those who could not go will find out now. As they say: It's best to take things DESPACIO.
