The days when Primavera Sound festival was mainly for indie fans are gone, and now the most popular music show in Barcelona delivers for every music taste, although the women completely stole the show on Friday.

The second night at Parc del Fòrum saw the performance of some of the big names of the mainstream pop music, such as Miley Cyrus and Carly Rae Jepsen.

Cyrus played some of the songs of her new album, 'She is coming,' and admitted she was performing with "hungover" after a night of big party in Barcelona, one of her favorite cities, she explained.

In a very feminine night at Primavera, Carly Rae Jepsen also delighted her fans with some of her classics including 'Call me maybe' and 'I really like you.'

Both divas were preceded by the Catalan singer Pavvla, the artistic name for Paula Jornet, also known locally as actress, and succeeded by the Swedish electronic pop singer and producer Robyn.

Yet the female empowerment did not stop there. Janelle Monáe played some of the songs in her 2018 album 'Dirty Computer,' and also her charismatic single 'Make me feel.'

Despite the wider than ever range of genres in the mass festival, indie music was never to be left aside.

The British band Suede repeated at Primavera, and were joined by the Australian psychedelic band Tame Impala, whose faces are also familiar to those who never miss the event.
