Cruïlla 2015: the best of the line-up
Cruïlla Barcelona is an eclectic music festival, taking place once again at the Fòrum de Barcelona from July 10 to 12 with a line-up that includes pop, rock, soul, hip hop, fusion and world music. In this 2015 edition, Cruïlla will take over a larger area of the Fòrum's ample space but organisers promise that the distance between the different stages will remain short, one of the festival's features that they're most proud of. With concerts that last longer than most other festivals (between 75 and 90 minutes compared to just 45 in the case of most similar events) where the headliners don't over-run their slots, Cruïlla Barcelona aims to be a unique, relaxing experience for festival-goers.
