Located in the heart of the Paral·lel avenue, a nerve center of the cultural scene of the city and also a link between el Raval, el Poble Sec and Sant Antoni, Apolo was born as an amusement park. Since then, it has hosted a ballroom, a bingo, a professional skating club, a nightclub... until becoming the concert hall and nightclub that it is today.
Apolo is the preferred destination for the most diverse audiences, and every day of the week it hosts club sessions, concerts, cycles and other musical events in Barcelona. Heir to the club culture, it embraces all kind of music genres: rock, pop, indie, house, techno, disco, reggae, jungle, dub, dancehall, drum’n’bass, funk, reggaeton, trap, hip-hop among many other styles, the list is endless.
In parallel, it is committed to new talent and the promotion of new projects through the LAB, a platform dedicated to ideas, learning, technology, activism and artistic expression, and its own annual band contest, Bala Perduda.
