SOUL 4 REAL is a weekender dedicated to the best SOUL music, no matter the recording date. The first issue of the event dates back to the year 2000, and from this date on the weekender summon the SOUL lovers, sometimes coming from abroad.
During two intense nights trough the speakers you can listen to rarities and easily acquirable new recordings, forgotten oldies and future collectibles ... from southern soul, Crossover and funk to disco-boogie, modern soul, rare groove or Jazz Funk. 4 decades of Black music condensed in one weekend that you shouldn't miss ...the date will take place at the "KIOSKO Del Arenal", located in Bilbao's city centre, a very special and lovely club.
We have always appreciated and rated the discovery of new music treasures, that's why the risk and surprise are more than welcome when DJing. Regardless of the rarity or the accessibility of the tunes, the most important thing is the QUALITY. We would like to give a public "Thank you" to all the DJ's involved during the 13 editions and also for those who have attended the venue We are very grateful for your support.
