About

Music /

Paral·lel Festival has curated a musical selection based largely on uniqueness, promoting differentiated and disruptive musical paradigms. DJs from the international scene will explore experimental, ambient, and techno musical aesthetics over the course of 3 days on a single stage. Each performance will organically link the previous and subsequent performance, forming a narrative that weaves through a balanced day-and-night program.

An inspiring environment, precise musical selection, and the comfort of our attendees are the three utmost central axes for our organization team. We aim to offer a novel and fulfilling experience for music lovers with our distinct and purposeful program.

Location and intimacy /

Our gathering takes place on the premises of a rural Catalan house located in the Pre-Pyrenees, one hour and thirty minutes away from the city of Barcelona. The space is huge, allowing us to offer distinct areas for performances, camping, rest, food, and beverage services.

We staunchly reject the motto “the more, the merrier”, and thus believe in a limited capacity, allowing us to prioritize audience comfort and the particularly intimate atmosphere of the festival. If you were with us last year, you know what we are talking about. Otherwise, join us this year and experience it for yourself!

Better experience /

The ticket pass for the festival covers 3 days of performances, more than 30 hours of music, and the possibility to camp at the festival premises from Friday to Monday. As part of our continuous aim for better services to our attendees every year, we offer shuttle bus services to and from Barcelona, food trucks and glamping tents. The Paral·lel experience premises itself both upon passion for music and love for nature: a community feeling of respect impossible to find anywhere else.

Paral·lel Festival is a self-funded initiative, which is exclusively possible thanks to ticket sales, the dedication of festival organizers, and collaborators. In order to improve the infrastructure and comfort on the festival premises we have been obliged to slightly increase the price of this year’s entrance. With your contribution we will be able to ensure the quality of the line-up, offering you a better experience overall, and keeping Paral·lel a recurring event for years to come.

These are some comments we received after our first editon. We say, the best presentation is our public. Thanks all of them!

Ticket sales strictly limited to 1,000.

Born out of a frustration with long beer queues, over-programming and a lack of space to dance at many other festivals, our main focus is to encourage an environment that allows people get to know each other and share a common experience, thus developing this experience so that it is fulfilling and relaxing to the utmost degree.
