Perhaps not as well-known as its Barcelona summer music festival peers, Primavera Sound and Sónar, Cruïlla is ideal for those people looking for top-notch indie and alternative musicians, along with smaller crowds and a more compact programme.

Based in the same venue as Primavera, the Parc del Fòrum, this year's programme has already got music fans excited: the opening night headliners include Jack White, and Seasick Steve; Friday 13 is anything but bad luck with a line-up featuring Prophets of Rage, N.E.R.D. with Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shay Haley, electronic star Kygo, Gilberto Gil, and local acts like La Pegatina and Joana Serrat.

And the closing evening is a treat with the likes of David Byrne, Orbital, Fatoumata Diawara, young Basque band Belako, Catalan star Nuria Graham, and a performance from the always amazing Barcelona theatre group, La Fura dels Baus. Add in food trucks, a market with clothes, accessories and beauty treatments, free WiFi and a cashless payment system, and your perfect summer weekend is set!
