Every Thursday from 5th to 26th May will host the second edition of Primavera als Barris, which will put on a total of twelve free concerts in different community centres around the city located in Les Corts, La Marina de Port, El Parc i la Llacuna del Poblenou and El Turó de la Peira. The cycle is especially designed to boost the participation of the inhabitants of the various neighbourhoods and to give visibility to the talent from these areas that are not usually featured on the live music circuit.
In collaboration with the Fnac and under the umbrella of Primavera a la Ciutat, the initiative will expand the spirit of the festival throughout different community centres around the city that will put on new bands with more established artists that share the stylistic criteria of Primavera Sound.
The headliner of this edition is the experimental electronic music duo The Suicide Of Western Culture, which is enjoying great success at the moment thanks to “Long Live Death! Down With Intelligence!” an album that is on the best of 2015 lists in the main specialised media. They will be accompanied by the Mallorca band Lost Fills, the revitalisers of traditional Spanish folk Los Hermanos Cubero and Tremenda Trementina, from Pamplona who have recently presented their third album.
Together with these artists there will be a selection of bands that rehearse and participate in different community installations: from the post-rock by Maamut, Ominira’s fusion of African rhythms and western melodies, experimental dub from STA to Cheetah Brava, a melting pot of tropical rhythms and electro pop via the garage pop of Aloha Bennets and Barbantes and indie rock from Errático and Kids From the 90s.
