Primavera Pro, the conference and showcase wing of the festival has kicked off today in Barcelona and as well as people actually being in the room, the entire programme for the next few days is streaming on their site.
Today sees talks featuring journalist Liz Pelly and Nati Linares and Aly Gillani from Bandcamp discussing the new policies of streaming platforms to favour artists, drag-king Ken Pollet interviewing King Princess about performative masculinity in the mainstream, along with a talk about the importance of queer cultural structures.
Performers on the channel today include a heavy dose of Irish acts with CMAT, Denise Chaila, Luz, Basciville and RunoffBroke showcasing under the Music From Ireland banner along with Korean acts Haepaary and SUMIN. And if you miss the performances they are available to watch until Friday evening when the conference closes.
All times are GMT+1.
