Time Out says

The Fòrum hosts a night full of rumba, jazz, soul, funk, reggae, dancehall and electronica over two stages where you can see Achilifunk (10pm), a project that's the brainchild of Txarly Brown with four top rumba musicians and some masters of funk and jazz playing classics of funk and Catalan rumba; The Gramophone Allstars Big Band (11pm), led by saxophonist Genís Bou, who play a fusion of Jamaican and African American beats and who bring together Catalan jazz greats such as Vic Moliner, Lluc Casares and Pere Miró, as well as young singer Judit Neddermann, one of the most celebrated voices on the current Catalan jazz scene; La Gossa Sorda (midnight), a band from Alicante that mixes folk roots with a political message; Batida (1am), a musical project from producer Pedro Coquenão, a radio, video and music producer who is known for mixing the samples from records that were heard in 1970s Angola and the most danceable electronica of today; and Aspencat (2am), a band from Valencia who work in the same vein as Obrint Pas with critical songs and sounds based on ska, reggae and drum'n'bass, but peppered with electronica.
