DGTL Music Festival 2016 in Barcelona

Written by Miguel

Created in Amsterdam and renowned for its quality line-ups as well as its environmentally conscious efforts, the DGTL Music Festival is once again coming to Barcelona, where on August 12 and 13 the Parc del Fórum will host its 2016 edition. Famous for its creative stage designs, it promises to bring you not only the best of electronic music but also awe-inspiring art installations.

Will you join the revolution?

DGTL Revolution is the name of the festival’s platform dedicated to sustainability. It focuses on objectives such as the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and  the promotion of smart consumption habits when it comes to energy, food and water. Its long-term project is to be a totally CO2 neutral festival.

Because no revolution can happen without revolutionaries, DGTL would like your help in its fight for a greener, more sustainable world. You can sign up for this revolution at the festival’s official website – this will grant you not only the satisfaction of contributing to a better world, but also free tickets for the event.


Obviously, no music festival is complete without music – and DGTL has plenty of it on offer. Digital artists from all over the planet didn’t want to miss the opportunity to promote healthier habits in society, and the resulting line-up is nothing short of spectacular, featuring the likes of…

Andhim – A DJ duo from Cologne, Germany whose sets have been described as “super house”. Described as “organic with an emphasis on the finer detail”, their sound is soulful, passionate and certain to get your feet moving.

Pan-Pot – Another German DJ duo who has in recent years become a household name in electronic music. Highly recommended.

Hot Since 82 – With one of those stage names you wish you had come up with yourself, Daley Padley, who was born in 82, is a British DJ known to deliver “hurricane-level” sets.

Tickets – Tickets start at 35€ and you can get them at the official website of DGTL Barcelona 2016.

How to get there – The best way to get to Parc del Fòrum by using public transportation (which is more sustainable!) is by taking the yellow line (L4) of the subway, exiting at El Maresme – Fòrum in the direction of Rambla Prim. The subway runs from 5 am to 2 am on Fridays, offering continuous service on Saturdays.

You can also take the Tramvía, exiting at Fòrum. The tramvía works from 5 am to 2 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

Buses number 7, 36, 143, H14, H16 and B23 will also take you to the event. They run between 6.30 am and 11:15 pm. Night buses N6 and N7 run from 11 pm to 6 am.

Safe travels, fun festival!
