New-festival- on-the- block elrow Friends and Family Festival yesterday released the line-up of its first edition.

Taking place on Saturday July 15 in Salou Quarry just outside of Barcelona, it promises to be a day of typical elrow craziness in the sunshine with an all-star cast of DJ’s worth making a trip for. Adam Beyer, Apollonia, Jackmaster, Jamie Jones and Richie Hawtin are some of the standout heavy hitters on the bill.

Guti (live), Agoria, Damian Lazarus, Loco Dice and Pan-Pot will also be on hand to provide some colour in amongst lashings of elrow confetti and inflatables. elrow assure us that it’s one of the most beautiful festival settings we could imagine - revellers will spend the day with the Meditteranean Sea at their feet and their hands in the air during 16 hours of non stop music.

Shuttle buses will operate all day from Barcelona and Reus airports, and also from Tarragona train station, which is just five stops on the R.Expres train from Barceona Sants station in the middle of the city.

Along with the musical talent, elrow has, as usual, enlisted more than 250 roaming actors to add to the spectacle, including stilt walkers and various performers, plus pop-up shops and food stalls in the ‘el market’. What are you waiting for?
