Four emerging proposals with Els Vespres de la UB

The cycle will host performances by Marta Knight, Ven'nus, Palmerita Coco Blue and Pinpilinpussies at the Agustí Pedro i Pons estate.

Marta Knight's inspirational folk-rock will kick off the 17th edition of Els Vespres, a cycle of open-air concerts at the University of Barcelona (UB), on 5 July. The programme is made up of four performances by emerging artists and will take place at the Agustí Pedro i Pons estate (Av. de Vallvidrera, 25). All shows will start at 8.30 p.m., but doors will be open an hour earlier. After the concerts, you can continue to enjoy the terrace — with bar service and gourmet hamburgers — as the music of Sin Sync DJs, a collective that explores the figure and discourse of the DJ and investigates new identities from a feminist and non-hegemonic perspective, leads you through the evening.

Marta Knight has made a name for herself on the independent scene. With Strange times forever, she moves from expressing herself alone to expressing herself in a group and tries to discover her place in a world full of stimuli. Two days later, the Sabadell-born Valèria N. Saurí, known as Ven'nus, will take the stage. She will present her first EP, El naixement, marked by intimate and atmospheric singer-songwriter pop. In the third session, on 12 July, it will be the turn of Palmerita Coco Blue, made up of Matah (La Kinky Beat), Willy Fuego (Amparanoia) and Madjid Fahem (La Ventura - Manu Chao - Joan Garriga). The trio proposes an organic sound inspired by the freshest and most characteristic Caribbean rhythms. Els Vespres will close with the Basque-Catalan duo Pinpilinpussies. They will be bringing with them their second album, Hipocondría, with a powerful sound and vindictive lyrics.
