Spain: Police dissolve days of rave party near Barcelona

IDespite the corona curfew at night, hundreds of people celebrated a day-long rave party in a warehouse near Barcelona. Video images showed how people danced under a large skull without masks. The police only broke up the mass celebration 36 hours after the first calls from concerned residents, as the newspaper “La Vanguardia” reported on Saturday.

Residents reported that at times up to 1,000 people attended the party in the small town of Llinars de Vall├Ęs, about 40 kilometers northwest of the tourist metropolis of Barcelona. Around 200 vehicles with foreign license plates were parked in front of the building.

Local residents report that the party was supposed to last until January 4th, the newspaper continued. The police had asked the people several times before the evacuation to leave the premises. The regional government announced an investigation into why the response was so late. In addition, it will be determined who organized the party. The organizers face fines of up to 600,000 euros.
