CRUÏLLA BARCELONA SUMMER FESTIVAL 2017.
A new edition of Cruïlla Barcelona Summer Festival arrives in Barcelona.
On July 7th, 8th and 9th, a new edition of the Cruïlla Barcelona Summer Festival will take place in the Parc del Fòrum (Barcelona). The 2017 edition counts with the participation of bands like Jamiroquai, Pet Shop Boys, Die Antwoord, The Lumineers, The Prodigy or Ryan Adams among many others.
Undoubtedly, one of the most anticipated performances is Jamiroquai’s, british band led by vocalist Jayson « Jay » Kay, who returns to the stage after seven years of absence since his latest remix album « White Knuckle Ride / Bumpy Ride « , released in 2010 with the collaboration of R & B singer and reggae Mohombi.
In march 2017 Jamiroquai `s album « Automaton » was released, inspired in movements like the artificial intelligence and the technological advances. This is another example of an artist who is committed to new technologies like the icelandic singer Björk that these days show us in Barcelona its exhibition Björk Digital.
During the Cruïlla Festival, Jamiroquai will make us enjoy the show with his latest album and some other classics of the band based based on fusion of futuristic funk, pop and acid jazz. Jamiroquai live will take place on Friday 7 at 23:15 h
Another one of the bands that the young people of Millenial generation looks forward to is Two Door Cinema Club. The Irish Northern band, formed in 2007 by three young guys who played pop guitars with sweet riffs, has managed to create a congregation of faithful followers based on catchy songs such as his great hit « What You Know », song that made them known. Two Door Cinema Club will perform on Friday, July 7 at 20:45 h.
Undoubtedly, one of the formations that has one of the most funny live performance is the South African duo Die Antwoord. If you had the opportunity to witness some of his live, for sure you have not forgotten. The artistic couple formed by Ninja and Yo-Landi announced the release of their next album « The Book Of Zef » few months ago. The single of this new lp is « Love Drug », you can see and hear in the following video, a subject Die Antwoord feels super comfortable with. Have a peek on their YouTube channel and see the original videos and scoundrels that has made this duo so peculiar. Die Antwoord will perform on Friday the 7th at 2: 15h.
Another musical trio that appears in Cruïlla is the North American formation The Lumineers. In 2012, the Denver band featured their debut namesake album with the hit « Ho Hey », which sold millions of copies and catapulted them to fame. This time the band arrives to Cruïlla with their latest album « Cleopatra » under the arm, a collection of songs between pop, rock and indie. These latest songs along with some other classics of the band, will without doubt delight their followers. The Lumineers will perform on Friday, July 7th at 22h.
Saturday is the turn for the electronic pop kings. The duo formed by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, popularly known as Pet Shop Boys, will present us their latest studio album « Super » in a concert that promises to be an important audiovisual show, like all the british duo has been doing. Logically, they will also perform some of their older stuff. This performance is included in « The Super Tour » of the band. The Pet Shop Boys live will take place next Saturday, July 8 at 23 h.
Another headliner at the Cruïlla Barcelona Summer Festival 2017 is The Prodigy. The classics like Firestarter or Smack My Bitch Up are well-known for their direct lines full of energy and strength, with some low thicknesses and a certain nonconformist character. The Prodigy will perform on Saturday the 8th at 2:00 h.
Without a doubt, one of the most anticipated performances is that of rock singer Ryan Adams. The guitarist has not performed in Catalonia since 2002, so his performance is highly anticipated by all his followers. The singer arrives with his recent album « Prisoner », a very personal and intimate work that with the rest of his classics, promises a very exciting live act.
If you are in Barcelona during this week, whether for holidays or for work or just live here, the Cruïlla Barcelona Summer Festival is a must to see for all lovers of good music.
