Few venues in Barcelona (or in the rest of Europe) can say they have been making their audiences dance for over 75 years. The Sala Apolo (and its second space, known as La  de Apolo) is one of the most important multidisciplinary spaces in Barcelona. It hosts events all week long, from concerts of all musical genres to clubbing nights, as well as radio and television programmes, premieres and other social events linked to Barcelona’s musical and creative scenes.
As mentioned, in Sala Apolo and La  de Apolo there are concerts of all types. However, genres with electronic touches such as electropop, synth-pop and indie-dance are the most common. As for clubbing sessions, however, there is a great variety of styles. Every party has its own musical line. On Mondays, Nasty Mondays offers hits, indie-rock and pop. Crappy Tuesdays on Tuesdays focuses on the purest indie sounds, while Caníbal on Wednesdays focuses on more urban ones such as trap, dancehall, afrobeat and even reggaeton. Cupcake recovers the pop and commercial sound aimed at the university audience and, on weekends, the Nitsa Club brings the best underground electronic music DJs and producers on the international scene to Barcelona.
Apolo’s audience depends a lot on the day and the party. From Monday to Thursday, university students and young people between 18 and 24 years old are the majority. On Friday and Saturday nights, during the Nitsa Club nights, electronic music lovers occupy both rooms, slightly raising the average age.
Apolo is not strict with the dress code. The club allows its customers to dress however they like. There are no labels or conventions here. Come comfortable and ready to dance until dawn.
During the evenings when there are the best line ups, be it concerts or clubbing events, the queues at the Apolo can last a very long time, especially if you have not purchased advance tickets. After waiting even more than an hour, you will end up paying between 10 and 20 euros at the entrance. On the other hand, by purchasing the pre-sale ticket on Xceed, usually at a slightly lower price, you enter from a much faster and smoother queue. Plus, the ticket always includes a drink!
And, as we know, Apolo’s schedule is the same as any other club in Barcelona. It opens at 12.30am and closes at 5am on weekdays and 6am on weekends. Concerts, on the other hand, are usually organized during the weekdays, around 9:00 pm. Without a doubt, this is one of the busiest clubs in Barcelona.
