Paral·lel Festival unveil second wave of acts for 2018: Izabel, Refracted, Wata Igarashi (live)

Following their first wave of acts announcement last month, today Paral·lel, a Catalan techno festival set within the mountains less than 2-hours from Barcelona have announced the second wave of acts to join them at the third edition of the festival, scheduled to take place between 31st August – 2nd September 2018.

Established in 2016, Paral·lel has previously brought the likes of Function, Dorisburg, Antonio Vasquez, Peter Van Hoesen and Abdullah Rashim to the remote outpost surrounding the town of Guardiola de Berguedà. Set amongst beautiful forests and providing stunning views of the mountains, the location is an idyllic setting for a small scale festival that prides itself on a sense of intimacy and communion.

Izabel is the founder of Amsterdam based record label and blog Lullabies For Insomniacs. After leaving her native Melbourne for Amsterdam, she is now infusing various projects with her uniquely eclectic music taste. She hosts a monthly radio show on the acclaimed station Red Light Radio and is a resident at De School nightclub.

Refracted, the Mind Express label owner and half of the curatorial team at Paral·lel Festival will make his third appearance at the Catalan festival. After his mind blowing closing set on the first night at Paral·lel Festival 2017, there is no doubt Alex will bring his best to any kind of slot he is offered.

First confirmed live set for this year’s edition, Wata Igarashi will finally make it to Paral·lel after a first attempt of book him in 2017. He has quickly emerged as one of Japan’s leading DJs and producers exploring the deeper side of techno through well-received EPs on Midgar, The Bunker NY, and DJ Nobu’s Bitta label, as well as standout tracks on compilations on Semantica and Time to Express.

In order to foster a sense of singularity and to ensure nobody misses anything, all music performed at Paral·lel takes place on a singular stage, with a near 40-hour set of performances divided into three distinct blocks that span the festival’s duration.

Tickets are limited to 1000 and are on sale now for €79 via Paral·lel’s website.
