The new proposal, presented this noon at the centenary Barcelonian club, is an initiative of the promoter Clipper's in partnership with the record multinational Universal through its subsidiary GTS. The aforementioned promoter, chaired by Juli Guiu, is already responsible for other festivals on the local scene such as the Suite and the Room, as well as Cap Roig in Calella de Palafrugell.
"It is a festival very artistically diverse, born with the desire to attract a diverse audience with artists top
in each of its genres, "said Guiu, who is also the director of the new call. In his opinion, the initiative has a place in the dense calendar of live music in the city for "the quality of the artists and the emblematic space of the upper Barcelona area where it will take place".
The presence of a powerful record label like Universal does not imply that the poster of the cycle is determined or monopolized by names of the same and, as remembered Narcís Rebollo, president of the aforementioned major in Spain and Portugal, of the poster of this first edition only three They are from Universal (Pablo López, Ana Guerra and David Bisbal).
It was also Rebollo who assured that the appearance of a new musical festival in the Catalan capital arrives "for fill a gap", Because before the summer season there is a demand that is not covered.

In addition, and taking advantage of the availability offered by the framework that will host the festival, the different concerts will be adapted to different audiences of public. So, and as Juli Guiu was shelling out, the two inaugural concerts of Pablo López (May 31 and June 1) "they will be very special" since they will present their songs "only with piano and voice", located in the center of the polo track and surrounded by six steps, in a format of 360 degrees with capacity for about 3,800 people.
