Indie, electronic music, instrumental surf...the most up-to-date musical trends will be present at the Festival.
As in previous years, the Annual Gijón International Film Festival to be held November 20-29 adds live music to its nights. Fifteen names for ten cinema nights, a Festival´s real bet for music, specially for Spanish music, and for entertainment. In addition to this, the Festival offers several stages for the concerts.

The English musician Barry Adamson (MySpace), soundtrack composer to Lost Highway by David Lynch will perform at the opening night gala, November 20. Influenced by Motown and Jazz, the Manchester-born bass player, who is coming to Gijón with his whole band, has worked with musicians such as Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Buzzcocks or Pete Shelley. The opening night will offer a double performance as his music will move to the Sala Acapulco after the first screening at Jovellanos Theatre.

For fans of the last trends, Madrid-born Russian Red (MySpace) and Remate (MySpace) will present their work Safe and Sound, together with New Yorker Ladybug Transistor (MySpace) or the sensational new Spanish band Manos de Topo (MySpace). All them independent, original and composed by young people, influenced by the soft pop of the last decade to attract the most eclectic and modern public to the Festival. In addition, The Pinker Tones (MySpace) stand out on their own. Spanish band, which has travelled all around the world achieving great success. "Electro, pop, soul,rock and different languages" for those, who don´t resign themselves to just one musical trend.

Miss Kittin and The Hacker (MySpace), real important figures of the European scene, will give the electronic touch at the fairground and Peace Division (MySpace) at the closing night gala to be held on this occasion at El Jardin. But there are some more alternatives: Parallel to the ElectricFilmDay, MyStereo (MySpace) and Black Horde (MySpace), both music bands from Gijón, will offer a concert at Savoy. And to recover from this intense night, Julio de la Rosa (MySpace) gets onto the stage on Sunday 23 at El Gato Tuerto to offer a pop concert.

Bimba Bose, The Cabriolets (MySpace) singer attendance is also worth mentioning; soul, pop and rock harmoniously joined in their latest work, Demo. By them the Spanish Nubla (MySpace), whose singer embodies the reborn of bohemian essence. Both will be the protagonists at the Sol Música Party, that last year brought to Gijón Facto Delafé y las Flores Azules.

Doctor Explosion (MySpace), music band from Gijón, present their latest work, Chupa aquí, a mixture of the essence, attitude and energy of rock'n'roll through a simple work. In addition the surf gains importance at this year's Festival with the concerts of three groups devoted to retro instrumental. Los Coronas (MySpace) will make the public dance with their high voltage introsurf after more than twenty years of successful career all over the country and beyond our frontiers, including Mexico. Support band at the Casino de Asturias is Kings of Makaha (MySpace). The Dutch Tiki-Boys (MySpace), previously known as Trebel Spankers, will accompany Doctor Explosión at a night, where savage sounds and entertainment are to reign.

As usual, the Festivals´concerts are free, except for the ElectronicFilmDay 3.0 and the closing gala and the seating is limited according to the capacity of the concert venue. All the concerts start fifteen minutes after the last screening of the Official Section at the Jovellanos Theatre.
