The final concert, on August 29 at Palau de la Música, will be played by Aloe Blacc, the new sensation of international soul & funk. In addition, there will be the presence of such prominent artists as Vestard Shimkus, Daniel Ligorio, Lluís Rodríguez Salva, China Moses & Raphael Lemonnier, Freddy Cole and Lucky Peterson Band, among other great artists. There will be a free concert by the Municipal Band of Barcelona on July 31 in Plaça del Rei.

The scenarios are: Jamboree (Jazz), Moog (Techno) Tarantos Club (Soul-Funk), Tarantos (30 minutes flamenco), MUHBA, Palau de la Música, El Born (Cultural Centre) and Poble Espanyol (opening concert).
