Parc del Fòrum, 2012
The Spanish band Bigott has just finished their energetic show and is still in high spirits when we meet them at Primavera Sound Festival. The night has already fallen, so we just make a quick hop outside the festival site. Next to the sparkling Museu Blau the five-piece band from Zaragoza go for an animated rendition of “The Jingle Swing”. They even try to get some dogs join the performance, but their dog owners are reluctant to let them go. However, this does not stop Bigott to do another inspired sing-along and walk-along performance. After a short pretaste of their hit-single “Cannibal Dinner”, singer Francisco De Borja and his bandmates then play “Sparkle Motion” while dancing and walking back towards the festival entrance. Sparkling!
Parc del Fòrum
At the Northeast end of Avinguda Diagonal, where this major road meets the sea, lies the newly built Parc del Fòrum. Its most outstanding landmark Museu Blau is often simply referred to as Fòrum building. This triangular shaped, maritime blue giant was built by the Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron. Passing by Museu Blau you get to the Primavera Festival site to spot the next landmark: a huge solar panel in a setting of concrete and the deep blue sea!
