Platja de la Pau is a beautiful beach park at Port Fórum in Barcelona. It’s a fantastic setting where the urban environment effortlessly accepts nature, with green patches shadowed by palm trees making the connection between the city pavement and the sandy beach. A breathtaking landscape, it’s no wonder that it’s extremely popular with tourists during the spring and summer months.

After this description, we’re sure you really want to check it out – don’t worry. The festival’s official website has all the detailed information you need in order to get to the venue.


David Guetta – Arguably the biggest worldwide name in dance music, this Frenchman seems to have done it all. With a career of over 30 years, it appears as if Guetta is determined to not get any sleep before he has made the whole world move their feet. Well, he might just accomplish that. The next stop on his path of world dancination (yes, we just made up a word) is Barcelona Beach Festival, where he is sure to make the crowd wild and once again direct unforgettable summer moments.

Ruby Rose – An Australian model, DJ, singer and actress, Ruby Rose recently had a major role in Netflix’s hit series “Orange is the New Black”. The former MTV VJ has also been a major advocate for LGBT causes. This versatile force of nature is looking to bring all of her power to Barcelona, where she will take over the stage to make you dance – and it won’t be a guilty pleasure at all.

Hardwell – Crowned as the #1 DJ in the world at the age of 25, Hardwell is a megastar in the making. He doesn’t want to be the next Tiësto or Guetta, though – he wants to be the first Hardwell. Now 27, his reputation continues to grow as he takes over the entire world with incredible DJ sets that leave everyone buzzing. An absolute must-see.

We’re sure you’re convinced to come to Barcelona Beach Festival by now, but make sure to check out the full-line up to make sure you won’t miss anything.

Have fun!
