Festival Mil.leni Barcelona

Festival Mil.leni Barcelona

Each year, Barcelona enjoys the Festival del Milenio (Festival of the Millenium). This year the fifteenth edition began in November and will end on May 23. There will be a total of thirty concerts in different venues around the city. This year Van Morrison led the cartel, playing last December at the Liceu, but the festival stands out the variety of styles: flamenco has a great representation (Estrella Morente, Miguel Poveda, Tomatito and José Merce are good examples), but there is also room for pop (Lori Meyers, Delafé y las Flores Azules), and other artists such as the French minimalist Yann Tiersen, or the Balkan composer Goran Bregovic.

Concerts from March are:

  • 13/3 | 21:00h | Sisa, Portet y Oliver
  • 24/3 | 21:00h | José Mercé + José Manuel Zapata
  • 28/3 | 21:00h | Rachid Taha
  • 4/4 | 21:00 | Delafé y las Flores Azules

  • 24/4 | 21:00h | Standstill

  • 25/4 | 21:00h | Roger Mas
  • 29/4 | 21:00h | Goran Bregovic
  • 8/5 | 21:00h | Yann Tiersen

  • 23/5 | 21:00h | Miss Cafeina

In Edit 2013

Beefeater IN-EDIT Festival, at its 11th edition, is an international music documentary film festival celebrated in Barcelona and dedicated to all the music and film lovers around the world.

This will be a multi-screen edition, meaning that some films will be broadcasted online simultaneously to the Barcelona premiere, as part of the festival.

SOME OF THE FEATURED DOCUMENTARIES ON THE PROGRAM

Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction

The most peculiar and silent actor in all Hollywood breaks our hearts by talking about his journey and performing some of his favorite melodies. Nocturnal confessions, fragility at point blank range, damage assessment and “Blue Moon” in a broken voice that will make the earth shiver.

 

The Sound of Belgium

Belgians “work hard and party harder.” A clubber travels through the contagious yet obscure Belgian club scene, from the 20’s barrel organ to the 90’s hardcore, passing through the 60’s popcorn and the 80’s newbeat on the road to world domination. A clubland all of its own making.

Nitsa 94/96: el giro electronic

“It all exploded from there”. The legendary Barcelonese club with the revolving dance floor, pioneer of electronica in Spain and cradle to DJ Sideral, explained with loving scratches (Jeff Mills, Angel Molina and more), founders and fans from its birth until the bombastic 90’s.

The Punk Singer

The Punk Singer

The Punk Singer

This is the definitive profile of Kathleen Hanna, frontwoman of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre. She lets us into her inner world for the first time: riot grrrl, family, fame, Kurt Cobain, Lyme disease and her return as Julie Ruin. An arduous odyssey; no concessions.

AKA Doc Pomus

All greatness comes from pain. The life of Doc Pomus, composer of numerous hits (for Elvis and others) in a beautiful blues of disability, solitude and perseverance.  The full Hall of Fame sings his praises, from Lou  Reed and Dion, to Phil Spector and Ben E. King.

Check out the full PROGRAM here.

Line Up Primavera Sound 2013

The next edition of the Primavera Sound will take place from 22nd to 26th May at Parc del Forum in Barcelona

Until yesterday, the only known confirmation of Primavera Sound 2013 was Blur. People waited anxiously to the gala of confirmations to check if they were right in their predictions: “they sure will be bringing to Weezer”, “no! Sure David Bowie” … Well, neither, but pay attention to the Line Up (Band of Horses, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Simian Mobile Disco, Animal Collective …), the video that they have been carefully worked … is awesome, very hard to beat.

Do you have plans for New Year´s Eve in Barcelona?

27 Dec

If you don´t have, don´t worry The Urban Suites have though from where you can go and eat grapes surrounded by nice people to the best places to go boogie at New Year´s eve. You may don´t know that is traditional to eat twelve grapes, one on each chime of the clock.

Dinner options will the next post.

WHERE TO TOAST FOR THE NEW YEAR:

new year, 2013, barcelona

New Year´s Eve at Catalunya Square

Catalonia Square: During the last few years this place has become a meeting point to take the grapes and provide the  welcoming to the New  Year. The last New Year´s Eve about 50 thousand people met at this place, most of whom were tourists. One point to note is that there is a police cordon around the square not to allow people  to enter with bottles, but biodegradable cups are distributed to everyone.

new year, 2013, agbar tower

New Year´s Eve at Agbar Tower

Agbar Tower: The Agbar Tower changes the lighting first with the quarter and after the stroke, so it is an interesting proposal to go to eat the grapes.

WHERE TO GO OUT:

 

apolo, new year´s eve
New Year´s Eve Sala Apolo

 

Sala Apolo: At  Nitsa 2 are: DJ COCO + PEGATAS + MËTHER & ZACKER + FERDIYEI + CHARLYRAW

At the top: DJ FRA + MARC PIÑOL + KOSMOS

Entrance: 15 €

Sala Razzmatazz: There  is a 15 minutes walk from the Agbar Tower, so if you take the grapes there, it´s easy to get there. This club have five large rooms with different environments and music (techno, pop, indie, electro, rock, house …).

Access from 22:30 h: With 2 drinks, Tshirt  Razz’13, Cotillion, Lucky grapes, glass of champagne Price: 45 €

22:30 to 00:15: Show and Chimes by the Dirty Dancing Crew.

-From 00:30 Access to 5 rooms with Razz The Greatest Hits Collection

Check in after 00:01 includes 2 drinks and Tshirt Razz’13 €

Sidecar: This place is situated at Plaza Real and you will be able to dance the wildest rock. Not very big, so if you do not arrive soon you might find making a big queue. But it worth entering, is open until 6am and the environment deserves the minutes you wait in the tail. You have a 5-10 minutes walk from Catalunya Square.

City Hall: Next to Plaza Catalunya, less than 2 minutes walking you will find this nightclub. It´s known for offering a varied program every day. It has two different rooms (one electro, the another more rock) and two terraces that are open all year. City hall is also an excellent choice.Rambla Cataluña 4.

Alternative festivals:

New Year´s Eve, barcelona

Circuito Regenerador

NOCHEVIEJA REGENERADORA: (Postapocalyptic, as always): In my opinion, this is the craziest party of all and the funnier. Raúl Muniente, its creator, is a quintessential mass agitator and never fails in its mission to let the people have fun.

This time has moved to Poble Nou, to the Taberna Sonora, near Sala Razzmatazz.

The capacity will be limited to 400 people, so the sold out before the 31st December is possible, so if you are undecided …

Prices until 31 December-inclusive-

40 euros to 40 drinks

Where is it? In Pamplona street 96

HITAZOS A CHOLON: 15.0: For the second consecutive year, the group has chosen Sala 242 to say Good Bye to the 2012 and they will make you dancing from 1 to 6 in the morning.

Early Entry: 30 € (3 combined / 6 beers). The price for extra combined drinks will be 5 € and € 2.5 for beer or soda.

Where?  Entença 37, between Sepulveda and Gran Via

NEW YEAR´S EVE PARTY AT POBLE ESPANYOL: This probably will be the most crowded.

There will be three areas occupying 2500m2 and you don´t have to be worry about the cold, as they all are covered. The zones are carp, the fairgrounds and the party will be in the Plaza Mayor.

Normal ticket: € 35 (entry lilac or red) access to two areas.

VIP tickets: 40 € access to 3 zones.
