Parc del Fòrum, 2012

So here they are, Vienna-based Ginga at one of the coolest music festivals! It’s not the first time that we meet them for a video session, but it’s a real novelty to catch up with a local band abroad. Considering their catchy, intoxicating songs, Ginga’s extended touring is no surprise. Looking for a sweet filming spot at Parc del Fòrum in Barcelona, we end up at a shadowy playground. It goes without saying that Ginga immediately grab the kids attention (which also happenend during our video session back then in Vienna). However, the kids do not exactly consider our filming equipment as cool enough (“Look what camera he has!”, “Silly!”). As soon as Ginga start into a powerful performance of “One Of Us” and "Golden Boy" the kids’ critic falls silent.

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!
