Patti Smith and Band

Having hopped the septuagenarian hurdle, today Patti Smith is still recognized as one of the foremost female figures of the latter half of 20th century rock history. Her facets as a political and environmental activist and poetess have always been intrinsically entwined with her musical activity. Ever since Horses, her debut album at the outbreak of punk back in 1975, she hasn’t ceased taking her honest and unconventional attitude all over the world. Hailed as a point of reference for all subsequent generations, the “godmother of punk” arrives at the Azkena Rock Festival to make us raise our voices to tunes from her eleven studio albums in an exercise in freedom and its limitless expression.
