Monegros Desert Festival 2013

Get lost in the desert

The Basics

20 – 21 July 2013
Fraga, Spain

With kilometres of glorious coastline and islands galore, you might wonder why a Spanish festival would be situated in a bone-dry desert. However, as Monegros gears up for its 19th edition you can only assume the 40,000 people who attend each year's 24 hour party don’t mind the arid landscape and are fine with a little sand in their shoes.

Blossoming from its origins as an underground affair run by a group of friends, today there is plenty on offer for fans of all sorts of sounds. Last year saw rave antiques The Prodigy headline along with appearances from Richie Hawtin, 2ManyDJs and over 50 more acts. Look out for the special fireworks display on Sunday which closes the festival each year.
