The Festival

On the 8th and 9th of June, EL Festival will celebrate its third year in its original setting, the Poble Espanyol. The goal is the same: for people to enjoy the carefully curated musical acts in unique surroundings.

Beth Ditto, former front woman with the American band The Gossip, will headline the festival with her blues-rock which is reminiscent of her idol, Janis Joplin. French artists are well-represented and include Kid Francescoli, with his electro-pop musical project, Orelsan, one of the most interesting figures in French pop at the moment, No One Is Innocent, with their style which combines rock and heavy metal, the hip hop music of Bagarre and the rap of Pone.

To close the party there will be DJ sets from the pop and house duo The Shoes and the mythical Étienne de Crécy, a pioneer of French house music from the 90s.


Friday 8 and Saturday 9 June 2018 from 6pm to 1am.
