Sala Apolo

Apolo is one of the oldest dance halls in Europe and a national and international reference music venue. Its origin dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and its transformation has always been linked to the transformation of Barcelona, building an important part of the DNA of the city and its people.


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.


  • "I was expecting MWTM to be a special occasion and to help me move forward with music production. My expectations were blown away from day one. It turned out to be the best experience of my life and with music aside, was a life changing experience. It has been a source of inspiration for not only my career but my entire life everyday since."

  • "I then saw that Al Schmitt was scheduled, and knew I needed to attend! My experience at La Fabrique was amazing….As an engineer, my skills set increased tenfold. I walked away with more information, and learned more fantastic techniques in that week then I would in 6 months of school. Thanks again Al, and everyone at MTWM. I’ll be back!"

    Paul Andrews - Colorado, USA
  • "This week changed drastically my way of mixing for the better. All the knowledge shared is still infusing more than a year later, and the bonds created within the group hold strong. All that in one of the slickest studios in the world! Definitely a must for anyone whose passion for people equals passion for music."

    Seb Riou - Grenoble, France
  • "Originally, I just wanted to get to know some of those great guys behind the desks of some of my favorite albums. Ended up with not only tons of impressions, insight in highest-end pro-productions, tips for everyday job-life.  Mixing and producing music is surely one, if the greatest, professions in the world."

    Toni Hinterholzinger - Nürnberg, Germany
  • "As a professional mixer I was curious which new tricks to get out from the masterclass but MWTM blew my mind. The days at La Fabrique changed my whole emotional approach towards the role in the studio and especially my mixing! I´m looking forward to going back !"
