Freedonia is a cultural association located in the Raval District and has just celebrated its 9th anniversary. It is for members only, but joining is a very simple process, and to become one only costs €1.50. Well worth it in our opinion!
It’s an intimate venue with 3 main areas – two for music and a lounge. Once you’re inside you can drink, relax and dance to some of the best underground DJs and live bands in the city, or attend some its artistic presentations.
Recently the association has been hosting its packed out Freedoteque events at This Side UP! Club. Absolutely amazing atmosphere and it seems like the whole of Barcelona comes to celebrate with the organisers. This month they are in for a special treat… The captain and the crew would like to welcome you aboard El Crucero del Amor – The LOVE BOAT, where revelers will enjoy the start of the summer in style.
Get ready to sail through the seven seas on a night of dancing that even the largest iceberg will not be able to stop! DJs on the night are:
