- The second wave of our year-long party series sees us head to Lisbon, Helsinki and Barcelona.
RA's In Residence series will visit Lux Frágil in Portugal, Kaiku in Finland and Macarena Club in Spain.
In Residence is a year-long party series celebrating club culture at 12 different dance floors across the globe. Following stops in Chicago, Paris and Offenbach, in June we'll be at Lisbon's Lux Frágil, a riverside venue that's been going strong for 18 years, with parties happening on the 3rd, 9th, 24th and 30th. International guests like Seth Troxler, DJ Funk, L-Vis 1990, Sassy J, Floorplan, Hunee, Dr. Rubinstein, Paramida, Petre Inspirescu, Barac and Eli Verveine will be joined by local favourites like Tiago and Príncipe affiliates DJ Marfox, DJ Nigga Fox, DJ Lilocox and DJ Maboku.
In July we'll hunker down at Kaiku in Helsinki, which is run by local favourite Lil Tony and Lauri Soini. It begins on July 8th with Honey Dijon, Lipelis, Lauri Soini, Baba Stiltz and Emma Valtonen playing across two rooms, while the other three dates feature sets from the likes of Zip, The Knife's Olof Dreijer, Pender Street Steppers, Sansibar, Lena Willikens, Intergalactic Gary, Trevor Deep Jr, Kristiina Männikkö, DJ soFa, Juho Kusti, SØS Gunver Ryberg, Scientific Dreamz Of U, Jori Hulkkonen and Lil Tony.
August sees us take up residency at Barcelona's Macarena Club. The place, which is open seven nights a week, is tiny—the capacity stands at just 80—but the sound is immaculate. We've invited four guests to play intimate all-night sets during our August residency: Joey Anderson (3rd), Midland (10th), Vera (17th) and tINI (31st).
The In Residence parties began at Chicago's smartbar in March. (Check out our in-depth feature on the long-running spot.) This month we've been at Concrete in Paris—which we also profiled recently— and the May stop is Robert-Johnson in Offenbach. For the full lineups head to the In Residence profile on RA. A limited run of screen-printed posters for each venue will be available to buy via the RA event listings.
