After the Primavera Sound and Sónar festivals, for alternative pop and electronic music respectively, now is the time for Cruïlla Barcelona, an event that has rock and world music running through its veins. Iggy Pop is the big star of this year’s festival, accompanied by the never tiring Stooges.
Other big names in this year’s programme are the ska band The Specials, musical guerrilla M.I.A. and the no less combative Cypress Hill. For a more fancy-footed crowd, Cruïlla is also laying on a set by 2manydjs.
