La Lali Jove:
Sat 17 Feb 2018

Barcelona’s associations of young people organise Lali Jove (“Young Lali”), the city’s celebration of its youth and their clubs. This year, the event is devoted to vindicating use of the public space under the slogan “Fem nostra la ciutat, fem nostra la festa” (“Making the city ours, making the festivities ours”).

Lali Jove takes place in response to an appeal that Barcelona’s youth association movement has been making for years, for a space managed directly by these organisations for young people within the city’s annual festivities. As a result, on Saturday, February 17, visitors will find a huge programme of activities for children and young people at the Moll de la Fusta (Moll de Bosch i Alsina) dock venue. In the afternoon, all interested are invited to take part in the many workshops for children and young people that will take place simultaneously, organised by groups from young people’s associations. In the evening, a concert will take place, featuring a fantastic line-up: Mafalda with their raggacore sound, a fusion of ska, reggae, funk and hardcore; the pop-folk outfit Sense Sal; Adala, with their personal take on reggae and dub; Can Canalla, playing Latin and rumba tunes; and, finally, Ominira, winners at Brot, Barcelona’s festival for new talent.
