Estrella Damm’s La Merce 2012 Free Concert Line-up
This year’s line-up is an interesting mix of Catalan, Spanish and British indie, folk-pop, and alternative rock. On the night of the 22nd of September, 2012, at 19:00 the festivities will kick off with the popular folk-pop band from Catalunya ‘La Iaia‘. With a cool pop, instrumental sound and thoughtful lyrics (in Catalan), La Iaia is an outstanding example of modern Catalan pop music.
At 20:00 the local Barcelona band ‘Love of Lesbian’ will take the stage. ‘Love of Lesbian’, is an indie/pop-rock band from right here in Barcelona. They are local favorites and are sure to put on a good show. With a mellow pop-rock sound and inspired lyrics, ‘Love of Lesbian’ has a mellow thoughtful sound and is a standout Spanish band.
The headlining act, ‘The Kooks’ are scheduled to take the stage at 22:30. Not much needs to be said about ‘The Kooks’. A Britpop, Pop-rock, indie band that has experimented in a wide variety of musical genres, ‘The Kooks’ offer a little something for everyone.

How to get there:
Take Metro Line 5 (Blue) to the Sant Pau/Dos de Maig stop. After exiting the station walk down-hill on either c/ Dos de Maig or c/ de Cartegena (depending on which exit you use). Either way you will cross c/ Rosello. The whole city block between c/ Dos de Maig and c/ de Cartegena just above c/ Rosello is the Estrella Damm beer factory. It is a huge yellow building with a large tower that has a big lit-up yellow star on top. It will be very hard to miss.
