You'll want to mark your calendars now and try to go more ethan one night after seeing the line-up, which includes Woody Allen, The Roots, Ben Harper, Daryl Hall & John Oates, Jane Birkin, Salvador Sobral, Loreena McKennitt, Chick Corea and Macy Gray, among other international artists. From around Spain there are big names as well.

Weekend City defines itself as an eclectic and urban music festival making its debut this year on Madrid's festival calendar.

Keep your eyes peeled, as more are to come!
