5 years ago I attended the Ibiza opening parties and one of the parties I went to was Privilege opening. I’d gone specifically to see 2manydjs, who were playing in the small side Vista room which was being hosted by a brand I’d never heard of (and relatively only few at that time had) called Elrow. I done some research and seen they were a party from Barcelona. What followed was confetti, inflatables, plenty of colours and crazy costumes. I’ll always remember it as I’d never seen anything like it in a club before. Fast forward 5 years and having been to Elrow many times in Ibiza and the U.K., it is now one of the biggest, busiest and most popular parties in Europe. So we were buzzing for an Elrow event at their home in Barcelona where the event originated to be held when we were in the city for the weekend for this year’s Sónar festival.

Mark and myself made our way from our city centre hotel by taxi to Elrow’s Row 14 home near the airport. Although the party started at 9am Sunday morning, we’d only got in from Sónar By Night at 7am, so after a well needed sleep and rest, decided to hit the last few hours of Elrow at around 7pm. En route to the venue, we seen on twitter that Kolsch (one of our favourite DJs) had been unveiled as the special guest DJ, which added to an already brilliant line up including the likes of Darius Syrossian, Eats Everything, Detlef, Patrick Topping, Nic Fanciulli and wAFF among various others! Large! When we arrived we checked out the various rooms (there’s 3), and the party was called Sambodromo do Brazil, a Brazil Samba carnival feel. The event was rammed, as is Elrow’s popularity at the minute (Amnesia every Saturday in Ibiza is packed and the talk of social media!) – we headed over to see Kolsch in the outside area. Elrow is an event that can be much better reviewed with videos and photos, check out here below;


Elrow Barcelona in its original home lived up to its reputation and then some. The most bonkers clubbing experience of my life. Check out Elrow at Amnesia every Saturday through the summer in Ibiza, and in London at the Olympic Park in August. All tickets and info at https://www.elrow.es/
