At the end of this month we will be heading to Barcelona for one of the most interesting electronic music festivals. Ombra is a project born from the hand of agency WeareWe and label Oraculo Records with the aim of creating a meeting place for lovers of analogue and avant-garde sounds that do not fit in the current cultural offer.
The first edition was held in May 2018 in a club format, bringing together musical styles such as EBM, darkwave and industrial/experimental sounds. This year the festival it will take place in different areas of the city with industrial aesthetics. The idea is to combine heritage with music by creating a circuit in different spaces that can accommodate different offers.
For this second edition, Ombra will be divided into two sections. The daytime section, Ombra by day, that will take place in Utopia 126, a modernist one-time factory located in Poble Nou, which through its sober aesthetic and classical architecture reflects the philosophy of the festival and its relationship with music. The night-time section, Ombra by night, will take place in Razzmatazz and Wolf Club, two venues located in the same neighborhood.
There will be live performances from the legendary DAF, Psyche, Pankow and Trisomie 21, alongside groups like Imperial Black Unit, Manie Sans Délire, Year Of Denial and performers like Celldöd, Credit 00, June, Kris Baha or Le Syndicat Electronique.
On top of this, there will be DJ sets from great selectors like Marsman, Parrish Smith, Ron Morelli, Solar or Trevor Jackson.
