Audi_medcup_large_photo_2

Would you like to know something about regatta? In general, a regatta is defined as a series of boat races, mainly for rowed or sailed water ones. There still have many debates about the name “regatta” whether it’s derived from Latin or Italian. A typical regatta consists of races (as the core activity indeed) and many other social and entertained events. Being considered as the competition for amateurs, however, regatta is still well-organized and follows rules for schedule and procedure of the race.  

Among many famous regatta circuits, Audi MedCup is named as a leading one although it has just been held for 5 times. Audi MedCup (you can realize from the name) gets sponsor by automobile manufacturer Audi. The competition often lasts 5 months, starting from May; its route goes throughout Southern Europe and attracts sailors all over the world. In order to make the competition special, a rule related to the boat design is issued, stating that each and every boat has the same design, which means that it depends on how skilled the sailors are to win. It features two kinds of boats: TP52 and GP42. While TP52 was being competed right from the first edition of the race, GP42 was just added to the list since 2009.

This year, Audi MedCup will return to Moll de la Fusta – Port Vell marina, Barcelona from 12 to 17 of September. Parallel activities will be held during the completion and expect to attract lots of people.

ZZ Top Concert in Barcelona

Zz-top-en-argentina

Calling themselves “That little band from Texas”, however, after more than 40 years rocking the world, ZZ Top is still as energetic as from the beginning and establishing themselves as one of “biggest” and most influential rock bands! For sure rock fans will never forget the legacy they have left behind.

Probably the first and unforgettable impression about the band is “amazing beards” of the guitarists and vocals Dusty Hill and Billy Gibbons. The funny thing is that another member of the trio, Frank Beard is the only one who doesn’t grow his “beard”. Also the band manages to be outstanding by their unique hats and big-frame sun glasses which make people get the feeling they just get back from the party on the beach. However, these impressions will not last a long time without the ultimate catalyst: their music, which categorized as blues rock, southern rock, hard rock.

These statistics can somehow show how famous the band is: They have been selling more than 50 million albums worldwide, winning numerous music awards including three MTV music awards…and gaining million die-hard fans all over the world.

On 13 of July ZZ Top will have a concert at Poble Espanyol, Barcelona. They expect to perform hits which played parts to spread their music and image such as “Sharp dress man”, “Legs”, “Rough Boy”…

In the meantime let’s enjoy one the most noted songs by the band which should be in the playlist if you are a rock fan!

Hipnotik Festival 2011

Hipnotik_2011_600

I still remember how excited I was the first time watching a break dance performance on TV. I wondered how those dancers can perform such amazing movements with ease like this, to be honest; I didn’t dare try to imitate them, mostly because I was afraid of hurting myself. Step by step, I know that break dance is just a part of hip hop, which used to define as “a state of mind”. I can’t say that I’m a fan of hip hop, although I fancy these incredibly creative graffiti and some rap songs which sometimes I listen to. However, I’m sure that the more you find out about hip hop, the more you will treasure it and hopefully hail the (common) misunderstand that hip hop is just full of anger, drug…related!

To put it in brief, hip hop is an artistic culture which normally be seen through 5 elements: DJing, MCing, Graffiti, Breaking, Beatbox.

As a matter of fact, hip hop has been spreading its image, impact and value to all over the world, which Barcelona is not an exception. In order to make a meeting point for all hip hop cults and help other people get the sounded idea about hip hop, Hipnotik, a festival which designated to hip hop has been taking place.  This year the festival celebrates its 8th edition with many great activities being organized, such as concerts by talented artists: Duddi Wallace, Putolargo, Duo Kie…competitions for break dance, graffiti, classic “battle” for MCs…Also as an act to bring hip hop to more audiences and encourage people to express themselves, the festival offers “Battle for the band”, new space session with DJs and free micro for anyone who would like to try to rap.

Check out one of the great performances from last year edition:

Hope to see you there!

WWE World Tour

Wwe-barcelona-pressing-catch-2011

It was kind of funny whenever I recall about the first time watching a WWE match, I was scared (a little bit) at that time and can’t stop asking “What one Earth?” I didn’t expect a guy can brutally slam a steel chair into his opponent’s back and even tried to make him bleed! Later I knew that everything was just for entertaining purposes! Then I turn into a WWE fan and hardly miss a match.

One of my friends used to ask me why I’m so fond of WWE, well, I can list some reasons. Firstly, WWE offers a great combination of action and drama; all the wrestlers who normally are divided into face good guy and heel (bad guy) have their own story line with relation, friction and in certain period, they can turn heel into a total different character…The way they “act”, how they mimic and mock each other is really worth watching. About action, what can you say about a high jump from the top of the ring, or an acrobat finish? Just awesome! Also a WWE match is a performance of light, firework and music in order to bring ultimate excitement to the audiences. And WWE has established as the most famous entertained wrestling company thanks to diversified types of match and events: hell in the cell, no way out, king of the ring…different championship (world heavy weight, intercontinental…) The climax Wrestlemania features top matches which no one can afford to miss.

To help WWE fans around the world get a chance to watch matches live, WWE presents WWE World Tour featuring famous super stars like Randy Orton, Kane…The tour will visit Pavello Olimpic de Badalona, Barcelona on 11 of June and expects to attract many wrestling supporters.

In the meantime, let’s all be thrilled by the fantastic entrance theme by Triple H, one of the best wrestlers!
