A good swell stops the world. Plans get cancelled. Surf becomes priority number one. Riding waves seems the only activity that makes sense. But, when there's no waves, the surfers live the LIVE BETWEEN SWELLS, in other words, what happens while we wait for another perfect swell.
What do the surfers while waiting a good swell? We search inperation, watch videos, check new material, share a cold beer with friends...
This edition, the #BCNSFF17 will be focused on the best options to live a LIFE BETWEEN SWELLS. Afternoons of pleasure and connection with the Barcelona Surf Afterworks where you'll be able to see the latests surf news at the Barcelona Surf Expo; find out the best national surf buisiness at the Barcelona Surf Market; listen to surf live music at the Barcelona Surf Music; and learn from pros at the Barcelona Surf Talks.

Zero Waste FestivalHumans are the only species on the planet that don't live by zero waste principles.

On this V edition the BCNSFF17 partners with reBueno, a start-up focused on organizing sustainable waste free events.
The goal is double:
1) Achieve a Zero Waste Festival: generate zero waste not organic nor recyclable. Working to reduce the reciclable to organic as much as possible.
2) Society and education: teach the attendees how on our daily live we can make better decisions for us and for the environment.

Shamrock Vagabonds is a four-voice format music group accompanied by guitar, violin and percussion. Their music combines the play of voices with the instrumental polyvalence of each of its members through worked harmonies and the constant exchange of instruments Eli Jaddock, Lluis de Puig and Gina Woods and Albert Solà, ideal for #LifeBetweenSwells.

Old Tucson
Old Tucson Rock Thursday 6 - MMB - 6:30pm
Old Tucson is an abandoned village in the middle of the Arizona desert, surrounded by giant cactus and sand. There they found four solitary bounty hunters that between shots, dust and whiskey, decided to get together to rock all the canteens of the state. Their music starts from a deep blues base of the South of USA and ends in powerful riffs filled with fuzz.
We were dying to enjoy these four bounty hunters during #BCNSFF17.

Joan Queralt & The Seasicks
Joan Queralt & The Seasicks Thursday 6 - MMB - 8:30pm
Joan Queralt arrives accompanied by his band, The Seasicks (Ignasi Miranda - Bass and Ivan Morales - Drums) to return to his well-known beat in the purest American style. A style that moves between guitars full of atmospheres, deep drums and influences of the 60's and 90's without renouncing the country-folk that made him known with "Welcome Home".
"Time Made of Sand" is his third work and we will enjoy it during the #BCNSFF17 celebrating #LifeBetweenSwells.

The definitive impulse took him to Dubai, where he went to live at 15 and met Abo, a person who opened the doors to the Dubai music scene. From there, passing through Perth (Australia) and Barcelona comes this artist to the BCNSFF17 with a music that invites you to close your eyes and be carried away by waves, foam and #LifeBetweenSwells.
