Location: Madrid, Sapin
Fabrik is Madrid’s leading super-club. Hidden slightly out of town on an industrial estate, it is a truly huge hangar-like structure that welcomes thousands each weekend. The last year has seen the place do what they do best, with few changes. Parties like Supermartxe and Goa are long-running affairs that bring people from all over Europe to worship at the raised DJ booth inside; while nights such as CODE, elRow, La Resistencia and 150 mix up everything from trance to techno to old school to hard style on rotation. Residents Raul Ortiz, Cesar Almena and Nuke are also much-loved crowd favourites.
Oversized CO2 cannons, immersive lights and lasers and confetti explosions add to the intensity of the experience, as do the big name bookings. Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Sven Väth, Marco Carola, Carl Cox and Jeff Mills are just some of those who have played the three different rooms and terrace in the last year. The soundsystem is the last generation of Tecnare and there’s a huge LED screen behind the DJ booth, which changes up according to the musical mood of each event.
