  • Things to do

Time Out says

Time Out in collaboration with Gastronosfera.

In addition to the music events aimed at kids and adults alike, at the Antiga Fàbrica Estrella Damm they've also planned activities for the whole family because the Mercè festival is for everyone. On Sunday 24 and Monday 25 you can head over to the venue and discover the fabulous world of Antigua & Barbuda, a collective dedicated to making the most extravagant dreams come true. They'll be part of a curious fair, from noon to midnight on Sunday and from noon to 9pm on Monday. For the little kids, at the Escenari Titelles (Puppets Stage) you'll find the show 'El tresor del pirata' ('The Pirate's Treasure') from the Marionetas Nómadas Company both Sunday and Monday at 1.30pm, 3.30pm, 5.30pm and 7.30pm. On the same stage you can catch 'Roulettes', from the Ele Barcelona Company, at 12.30pm, 2.30pm, 4.30pm and 6.30pm.

On Monday at 3pm get to know Raúl Frutos, who, along with Inma Gómez, makes up the duo Crudo Pimiento. Frutos, an artist from Murcia, defines himself as a luthier and makes lutes and percussion instruments with unusual materials. They present 'Teleíste mouska' with a new assortment of improbable instruments.

Asturian crooner Pablo und Destruktion brings his music to BAM with his latest work, 'Predación'. Don't miss this intense live performance on Monday 25 at 4pm.

Chilean-Catalan quartet The Zephyr Bones take the stage with their psychedelic pop on Monday 25 at 5pm. They're working on their debut album that's due out this autumn, but you'll see that with them, the summer never completely ends.

Another act from Murcia, it's Alien Tango, a project by Alberto García Roca, with their album 'Supernatural Mango' and their easy-going and fresh style that encompasses sounds from disco to psychedelia. Check them out on Monday at 6pm.

And last but not least it's the duo Malandrómeda, known for doing something quite original: rap in Galician. In 2016 they self-released not one but two albums, 'Os Corentin y Noites sólo do inimigo' and 'Cada perro que lamba o su carallo'. Discover this alternative hip hop sound on Monday at 7pm.
