This two-day festival welcomes skate addicts from all over to enjoy the music, show off their skills, and pick up a few new ones from the workshops. The Skate Love disco is a repeated festival favorite and is held in a split indoor and outdoor venue across Barcelona, Spain. Here you’ll get the chance to whizz around in the skate area and the polished concrete surfaces while the DJ’s get to work in loading the arena with their set lists. Surrounding the venue are activity spots, a market, and food trucks to keep those energy levels high. Performances by some of the best skaters in the world are also programmed to take place.
The consistent flow of music will be thanks to DJs such as Rollers HiFi, DJ Dr Drew, Kapi, DJ Bart, and DJ Sujinho. As the name suggests, this festival is created for the love of skating which is why there is a specialized area set up for industry professionals and those with big plans ahead. The Netrolling area is the place for speakers, pitches, handing out business cards, and sharing those wild skating visions.
