Lapsus Festival marks its fifth edition by strengthening its commitment to avant-garde electronic music and renewing its pledge as a unique selector that provides alternative music trends to other festivals taking place in the city. Lapsus focuses on comfort and quality and seeks to avoid the trappings of large crowd formats.

inception-. Meanwhile, the night-time schedule will also be extended, taking place for the first time at LAUT, the incredible space located in the centre of Barcelona, equipped with the latest generation sound system.
On Friday night Lapsus at LAUT will present a showcase from Portuguese label Príncipe Discos, with Dj Lilocox and Dj NinOo closing the April 6 program.

Launched in 2004, Lapsus is cultural platform focussing on avant-garde
electronic music, creativity and technology.
To date Lapsus has been developed various complementary activities,
through the production of events, content for radio, the Lapsus record label,
curating installations and exhibitions and regularly programming national and
international artists for various music venues in Barcelona.
This diversification has allowed Lapsus to offer content creation and
distribution throughout the year, allocating their numerous resources
according to demand and the type of format and platform being used. In
this way, the Lapsus brand has established itself as a ‘prescriber’ in terms of
musical and creative trends, and as a vehicle for quality content.
The CCCB - co-producer of the event - is a point of reference for the cultural
industries in Barcelona; a space for the creation, research, dissemination
and debate of contemporary culture, where visual arts, literature, philosophy,
cinema, music, performing arts and transmedia activities are interconnected
