Barcelona gets soaked with surf culture at the second edition of the Arnette Surfcity Festival, where surfers from around the world can meet up along with those who are surfers only in spirit and the good (good, good) vibrations that come with the surf lifestyle. The festival includes a collective exhibition of contemporary art called 'We Are Antonyms', where national and international surfers present never-before-seen works under the 'Surf vs. City' theme. Among the international artists are Grant Ellis, Brooks Sterling, Tyler Spangler and Thomas Lodin, and the national creators include Álvaro Sánchez-Montañés, Carlos Medina, Víctor Bensusi, Sergio Villalba, Xavi Ocaña and Sergi Castellano. And what surf-themed festival would be complete without premieres of surf films, concerts and DJ sessions? You'll get those as well as talks and workshops, a market of craftspeople in the field, and a sea-inspired gastronomy as well as food trucks. Surf's up!
