The new Firestone Stage, that will be up and running for the three main days on the Parc del Fòrum site as part of Firestone Music Tour, presents an exquisite programme that perfectly sums up the spirit of Primavera Sound. Three artists that are very different from each other will give a second concert in a more intimate format in addition to their concerts that are an integral part of the main festival programme.
On Thursday 2nd June the first to perform on this intimate stage will be the American band Beach Slang, one of the great revelations of the year, and by all accounts one of the most exciting guitar bands around today. Their sound is influenced by eighties’ indie and major bands such as The Replacements and Hüsker Dü, and their debut exudes uninhibited rock and romantic punk.
The protagonist of the second day, Friday 3rd will be up’n’coming British pop artist Shura, who has been compared to Madonna and is the talk of the town with only a few singles to her name. Alessandra Denton has succeeded in compressing soul, electropop, r&b and electronic music into instant pop shots, like for example the two impressive hits “2Shy” and “White Light”. Her live act is a must, as could be appreciated at the last edition of Primavera Club.
And on Saturday 4th it will be Cass McCombs’ turn, without a doubt one of the most significant composers of the last decade. McCombs is coming to present his new record, the first on ANTI (home to Tom Waits and Wilco amongst others). It is an album that is another step in the career of a cult figure of our time, a chameleonic and enigmatic artist with a good number of masterpieces under his belt.
