This festival to come out of the Red Bull Music Academy takes over the Encants market with a day of music headlined by a Chicago legend and pioneer of house music, Larry Heard (aka Mr. Fingers). With a 30-year career still going strong, he's here for the first time in two decades. Getting things going are the folks from Madrid-based label Downbeat, and there will also be local pearls to check out including Abu Sou (aka Reixo Martínez), from Discos Paradiso. Expect good spiritual jazz and contemporary house.
