Sonar is fast approaching, and when one of the world’s top underground music festivals descends on an idyllic and storied Mediterranean beach town you can bet the Crosstown Rebels are never far behind. The Rebel Rave is coming to Barcelona and will be kicking off the first day of Off-Sonar events. Resident Advisor’s #1 label of 2011 will be levying the full power of its arsenal of artists on a beautiful classic Spanish villa capable of housing your closest friends and bad influences.
Barcelona is all about the weather, and the venue for this round of rebellion was selected specifically to capitalize on the city’s knack for sun and smiles. Featuring 2 outdoor stages fueled by 8000 kilowatts of Funktion One sound, we couldn’t think of a better set up to showcase the Crosstown Rebels’ family.
It goes without saying that this assortment of high-end nonsense will be helmed by Mr. Lazarus, but those familiar with the man and his music know he’s fond of constantly pushing the envelope by providing new surprises and keeping things exciting. It is with great restraint that we dress the (very) special unannounced guests for this event in a cloak of secrecy as their inclusion elevates the party’s place in Sonar history from “can’t miss” to nearly “impossible to match.” Those lucky enough to have been at Miami’s Rebel Rave this year will be pleased to see live performances from Amirali and house music’s new power duo Infinity Ink whose “Infinity” release on Crosstown Rebels is available on vinyl today. Ali Love and Luca C made what can only be described as aural magic at WMC this year and will undoubtedly be a highlight amongst a bill chock full of relentlessly capable musicians and DJs including Fur Coat, Kenny Glasgow, Just Be (Bushwacka), Russ Yallop, Subb An, Clive Henry, Francesca Lombardo, Jozif, Droog, Brohn, Adeline, Javi Sampol & Albert Rodriguez along with special guests.
It’s fair to say that after this party comes to town, the bar will be set high for the rest of the weekend. Tickets will be available Tuesday, May 15 with a very limited amount of tickets available the day of the show at the door. Get in!
