Coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the locally legendary Sala Apolo, BAM has prepared a new stage for this edition set up in Av. Paral·lel, serving as an homage to the history (and present and future) of the Apolo, but also because Paral·lel is a cultural artery of the city. Opening up the live music are the Barcelona Jazz Orquestra (noon), the big band that once a month transforms the Apolo into the place to be for lindy-hop and swing dancers. Next up it's lounge music from Portugese band Real Combo Lisbonense (6pm), an ensemble of 12 musicians with a repertoire of classics and gems that bring back the spirit of the orchestras that have played in Lisbon's festivals. The beat keeps going with The Mani-las (10pm), a power trio led by Maika Makowski, who follows the line of punk and the spirit of the riot grrrls of the '90s. Then it's time for more from Portugal with Throes and The Shine (11pm), an experiment of sound that mixes electronica, rock and kuduro (Angolan roots music). Closing out the night is a concert from Argentinian artist living in Madrid Nathy Peluso (1am), a star on the new Spanish hip hop scene.
