Later this summer, Mallorca’s most monumental electronic music festival returns to the breathtaking Balearic Island across five distinct dates. After a successful run back in 2019, Origin Fest is ecstatic to make its grand comeback and completely blow attendees away with its most massive production yet.
While particularly close to all the craziness that goes on in Ibiza, Origen Fest offers that Spanish party vibe dance music lovers from across the globe can’t seem to get enough of but in a distinguished ambiance. This year’s Origen Fest will take place on the following dates: May 14, June 5, July 10, Aug 14, and Sept 4 at the Son Fusteret pop-up showground just on the outskirts of Palma.
Not all the lineups have been finalized for each date just yet. Still, festival-goers can start getting pumped to witness electrifying sounds from headliners Wade, Paul Kalkbrenner (Live), Luciano, Michael Bibi, and Paco Osuna throughout the summer. With more announcements on the horizon, we can’t wait to see what other names round out the remaining Origen Fest dates.
