Summer in Barcelona is synonymous with festivals and cultural events, and one that took place for the first time last year was ‘Barcelona Bona Nit’. Now it is ready to return this year on 19 July 2014 at Poble Espanyol.
Kicking off the festival will be the Barcelona band Raydibaum, presenting their latest work which will be released on 11 March. Festival goers will also be able to hear the minimalist folk of Swedish singer José González and the funk, pop, disco mix of the Russians Pompeya.
What’s more, the success of the first edition has led the organisers to create ‘Bon Dia Barcelona’ (Good Morning Barcelona), a daytime extension of the festival, also on the 19th. Aside from the musical performances from 9 am to 12 noon, anyone who fancies going will be able to take part in recycling workshops, listen to talks and enjoy the recreation areas. All that in collaboration with recycling promoters Drap-Art.
Barcelona Bona Nit will continue to push sustainability at this second festival. Last year it was acknowledged as the “most sustainable festival in Spain” by the international association A Greener Festival, and this year it is not forgetting its ecological side either.
The food on offer will include vegetarian, vegan, organic and local dishes to promote healthy eating. Priority will also be given to local suppliers and responsible waste management.
For example, all the posters and stage sets from the first festival will be recycled and 100% of the energy used during the festival will come from new and renewable sources. One example of the combination of quality music and environmental awareness Barcelona Bona Nit is promoting.
