The second day of this most eclectic of Primavera Sound festivals once again stars a variety pack of stars who are otherwise hard to see live in Barcelona, like one of the big names of the moment, rapper and singer from California, Frank Ocean, who presents his brilliant second album, 'Blonde' (2016); British trio The xx (featuring Jamie xx), who have seen their fame shoot sky-high recently and who present their third album, 'I See You' (2017); Stephin Merrit and The Magnetic Fields, back this year with the conceptual '50 Song Memoir' (2017), which, as the title indicates, includes 50 songs and is a type of chronicle of the American singer-songwriter's life; the return to live shows by classic soul punk band The Make-Up; the always effective pop that's progressively less lo-fi from Canadian artist Mac DeMarco; experimental electronica from Flying Lotus; the return of indie classics from California Grandaddy, who are finally releasing a new album, 'Last Place' (2017), following their 2012 reunion; hip hop supergroup Run the Jewels, with El-P and Killer Mike; and home-grown bands like Basque rock from Berri Txarrak, It's Not Not, and the meeting-up of Kepa Junkera and Los Hermanos Cubero.
