OffWeek Festival 2022 unveils parties including Afterlife

Parc del Forum, Barcelona will turn into a techno heaven with events from Upperground, FRRC, and [a:rpia:r]

After two years of stop because of the pandemic, the iconic house and techno OffWeek Festival is set to return in 2022 from the 17th to the 19th of June in Barcelona. This year’s event schedule is everything we have missed from OffWeek Barcelona. Kicking off on Friday, the most awaited return of Tale Of Us’s Afterlife showcase; on the same day [a:rpia:r] will mark its return after a couple of years of hiatus. Saturday will see FRRC label and Solomun’s Diynamic take over OffWeek, ending on Sunday with ARTBAT’s label Upperground showcase.

If you’re new to it, OffWeek Festival is one of the most famous events in Spain when it comes to electronic music. Running every year in mid-June, the festival takes place in the huge space of Parc del Forum in Barcelona. Several open-air stages are built in the area and people can choose to attend single events or buy a pass for the whole 3-day festival. This year five label showcases have been revealed and more are to be announced. Tickets will be on sale from today, February the 17th from 4 PM CEST via here.

On the mainstage, the amphitheatrum will host Tale Of Us, Stephan Bodzin (live), Mind Against, Fideles, Colyn, Kevin de Vries, and 8KAYS.
