Do you like shopping, concerts, and spending time with friends? If you missed Rec.0's spring event—and especially if you’re in need of some new winter wardrobe items—the fall edition of the fashion, music, food fair is back!

Running from November 7 until the 10th in Igualada, a town west of Barcelona, it’s named after the industrial neighborhood where it’s held and that it aims to revitalize. For four days, it features pop-up and experimental stores in former warehouses, selling top brands – over a hundred of them – all, at special prices.

The event’s 19th edition “has tons of new additions” to show: “on one hand, new spaces,” as well as new brands, said Cristina Domènech from the Rec organization. This, to be complemented with DJ sessions and concerts, children’s story readings, conferences, workshops, dancing—and of course, street food to keep your energy up.

Domènech highlighted that it’s not just about finding good brands at cheap prices: it’s also “a chance to have a good time, take a break, walk around with your friends, take it easy and have a beer, watch a show,” she explained, for example at in the gastronomy area, or even listening to a concert on one of the three stages – provided free of charge. Domènech added that the organization has high hopes: they’re aiming for 120,000 attendees.
