Spain’s ‘Groove Parade’ Festival Cancelled


The Groove Parade, which is formerly known as Monegros, was recently cancelled. The annual techno and house event was set to take place in Northern Spain’s Monegros Desert on July 17th and 18th. The festival was to feature artists like Carl Cox, Laurent Garnier, Ricardo Villalobos, and Richie Hawtin. The 2015 festival was called off for the first time since its inception in 1993 due to what the organizers are callingĀ “the refusal regarding the use of the land by one part of the estate owning the grounds.” Their statement continues, “Faced with the unlikelihood of successful negotiations and the uncertainty regarding a favorable legal decision, we have decided to react in what we consider the most prudential and responsible way to avoid risks and problems for all parts involved: public, artists and the organization itself. We want to express a most heartfelt gratitude to the over 15,000 thousand people who have purchased their tickets and the 50 artists who confirmed their presence in the festival. All tickets will be reimbursed and the cost will be returned into the accounts used to pay for the tickets in a period of no more than 7 days.”
