The axis Madrid – Barcelona
Way behind are the years where the famous “Ruta del Bakalao” (destroy route) joined the cities of Madrid and Valencia with a rich offer of legendary clubs. Now the axis, much more refined and with a much higher quality, is between the two state capitals: Madrid and Barcelona.

Including the compulsory stop in the singular town in Huesca close, to the frontier with Lleida: Fraga, where the prestigious Monegros Desert Festival takes place and where the club Florida 135 permanently offers the best combination of electronic music.
Andalusia: the most surprising offer
Southern Spain is not only flamenco and sun: Andalusia has excelled in recent years as first class destination for lovers of good electronic music. In this region, the axis is located between two provinces: Cadiz and Almeria.
