The club takes place every Friday and Saturday from 00:00 to 06:00 in Madrid’s Sala La Paqui (formerly Sala But), located in the Malasaña district. Every weekend there are DJs with extensive experience; we receive groups and artists from the music scene and abroad who come to do DJ sets of their favorite songs; we enjoy short live performances and, of course, we always dance with the excellent Ochoymedio Djs.
We understand pop as a broad term. We give alternative pop, different types of urban music, electronic music, timeless hits, what we like from the mainstream, electronic music, reggaeton, cumbia. It’s hard to miss a style in the club, but if there is one, it will eventually play out.
The concerts that we organize in the afternoon take place, mostly, in this same location, La Paqui, but also in other venues in the capital such as: Cool, La Riviera, Wizink Center, etc. Of course, eclecticism is also our trademark in concert programming.
TheOchoymedio as a club opened in Madrid’s Sala Flamingo in June 2000. Those were the times of the techno-pop revival in the Spanish underground scene and this marked the beginnings of the club, which little by little, according to the evolution of the scene, was becoming wider in styles.
Thanks to its three hosts: Luis García Morais, Belén Chanes Gálvez and David Pardo Montero, known on the decks respectively as LUILIMINILI, MANAZAS and SMART, music with songs once again took over the capital’s nightclubs. With them in the booth and at the controls of the club, several generations of music lovers have sweated on the dance floor.
In April 2011 a textile giant took over the premises where the Ochoymedio was located and the Flamingo room ceased to exist. In June 2011, the second stage began in the impressive BUT hall, with double the capacity and a better layout for the concerts. In 2022, the third stage began when it reopened after the pandemic hiatus, located in the same room now called La Paqui and managed by the company LetsGo.
For several years now, Ochoymedio has consolidated its position as a concert promoter, organizing more than 70 concerts a year. We have received essential national artists such as C. Tangana, Carolina Durante, Los Planetas, Bad Gyal, La Casa Azul, Morad, Dellafuente, Viva Suecia, Sticky M.A., Lori Meyers, Cupido, Cariño, Bejo, Ladilla Rusa, Kiko Veneno, Maikel Delacalle, Anni B Sweet, Hinds, Carlos Sadness, La Bien Querida, La La Love You, Novedades Carminha, Yung Beef, Najwa, Maka, Hinds, León Benavente, Cruz Cafuné, Sidonie, Pimp Flaco & Kinder Malo, Los Punsetes, La Habitación Roja, Ginebras, Las Chillers, Joe Crepúsculo, Putochinomaricón, Ojete Calor, Morgan, Aviador Dro, Lkan, Los Ganglios, Los Fresones Rebeldes, Chico y Chica, Hidrogenesse, Las Bistecs, Astrud, Triángulo de Amor Bizarro, etc.
