Primavera Sound's 'Primavera in the Raval' concert series is set in the CCCB, where you'll find three stages (Plaça Joan Coromines, Sala Teatre and Pati de les Dones) that will host nearly 70 artists and groups throughout the first weekend in June during the day. And it's all for free.
The first of the three days boasts as its headliner Californian singer-songwriter Cass McCombs, who has spent more than a decade sharing his folk sounds with all corners of the world. Also on the line-up are Julien Baker from Memphis, in the best tradition of folk indie; Canadian multi-instrumentalist Andy Shauf, who could liven up any festival with his sunny and tasty pop-folk from his latest album, 'The Party' (2016); and Italian psychedelic collective C+C=Maxigross.
Don't miss great music from Catalan and Spanish bands, with Madrid's Baywaves and their acidic psychedelia; classic pop and crystalline melodies from Barcelona's own Big Summer; the duo Cala Vento, who have hit the scene running to carve themselves a niche on the local scene with their mix of pop, indie, punk and post-hardcore; and some krautrock from the trio Shinkiro.
