BAM (Barcelona Acció Musical)
Four days of music at venues like Plaça Reial, Plaça Joan Coromines, Plaça dels Àngels and the Fòrum Park.
BAM began in 1993, and celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2012. All the concerts are free of charge and are held outdoors. One of the most outstanding concerts is staged at the Antiga Fàbrica d’Estrella Damm, [the Old Estrella Damm Brewery] in the Eixample, which usually attracts thousands of people. This is one of the La Mercè Festival's most popular events.
Over the course of BAM's two decades, Barcelona residents have had the chance to enjoy top bands, including Belle & Sebastian, Primal Scream and Travis.
