BOWERS & WILKINS + BOILER ROOM

An extensive list of world-famous DJs and live electronic music sessions will take place in Parc del Fòrum from Thursday 29th to Saturday 31st May in a new and original site jointly presented by the well-known loudspeaker brand Bowers & Wilkins and the platform of online electronic music broadcasting Boiler Room.

Under the name of Bowers & Wilkins + Boiler Room, this stage will have the best sound in the world thanks to a colossal sound system made specially for the occasion and placed inside an enormous igloo built by Igloovision with a capacity of 1000 people. The venue will also feature a 360-degree video projection created by cutting-edge British video artists, immersing the spectator in an all-enveloping experience. The Sound System will combine the holographic sharpness of a high definition studio speaker with the rawness and the control of the latest generation subwoofer technology.

For the second consecutive year Boiler Room will broadcast a large number of concerts that will allow millions of fans to share this particular musical event. The broadcasts will take place during the three main days of the festival and will include a varied selection of sounds focusing particularly on outstanding local talent from some of Barcelona’s most internationally famous institutions.

The music will start every evening at 9 pm sharp with a special session by three exclusive guests that will be the starting signal for an eclectic programme that will go on well into the early hours. Jamie xx, member of The xx and one of the electronic music producers of the moment, will be the first to play in this tent on Thursday 29th May, and on Friday 30th Pional, it will be the turn of the Madrid artist who is fast becoming a key player in European electronic music. On the last night, Saturday 31st John Talabot, who is without a doubt our best-known international DJ and producer will take to the stage.

On the first of its three days, the tent will host a showcase by the Barcelona club Nitsa that, as well as sessions by some of its resident DJs Kosmos, Shelby Grey and William Dafoe, there will also be two top-quality shows by Andy Stott and Lunice and a session by the powerful Fort Romeau. On Friday 30th it will be the turn of the darkest, most experimental electronic music. The Haxan Cloak and Demdike Stare, two of the most convincing shows around at the moment will play together with Dominick Fernow, who will perform three times as Vatican Shadow and Prurient live and under his own name behind the decks. Three Barcelona DJs will also present their fine musical selection which they master to perfection: Angel Molina, DJ Fra and Dj Zero, pillars of clubbing in Barcelona.

Saturday night will be run by the most international Barcelona label of the moment: Hivern Discs, which will present live acts by Genius Of Time and New Jackson (author of one of Hivern’s best latest releases). And behind the decks there will be a large representation of the label headed by Marc Piñol (DJ with a long career who seems to be at his best moment), who will be accompanied by Mistakes Are Ok, Mathis With and Dani R. Baughman.
