Verbena Roller

El cuerpo del Disco

Verbena Roller

The city’s history and tradition simply cannot be understood without its famous ‘verbenas’, street parties which are experienced with intensity and enjoyment, particularly so in the summertime, when the days are longer. These celebrations are part of the most authentic Madrid, the Madrid that’s most closely connected to its legendary tradition as a festive and sociable town, with people who come across as really natural and determined to have a good time. And of course, more than willing to welcome anyone who cares to join in. 

The Veranos de la Villa festival kicks off the summer street party season with a pretty novel one in which the traditional dance floor where people dance “cheek to cheek” will be turned into a huge roller skating rink with El cuerpo del Disco as masters of ceremony. 

Brothers Yayo V. Codesido and Eloi Vázquez, from Santiago de Compostela by birth and from Madrid by adoption, play everything from classic disco and boogie music to the latest house sounds and of late they’ve started to pay a lot of attention to Spanish dance music. We can’t talk about El cuerpo del Disco without mentioning their legendary Roller Sessions in Chamartín, and now during the Veranos de la Villa festival they’re going to make one of their dreams come true: a giant, open-air roller disco in Madrid, totally free and for all audiences. Also joining them as guest DJs will be their bros from those early parties: Linda Mirada and Arturo Expósito.
