The Camp Nou was visited today by two members of Puerto Rican band Calle 13, who are in Barcelona for the Cruïlla Fesrtival, where they’re playing on Friday night. The singers, René Pérez, AKA ‘Residente’, and Eduardo Cabra, AKA ‘Visitante’, were welcomed into the presidential lounge by Dídac Lee, director of the Media and Communications Department and head of New Tecnologies, who were presented with first team shirts with the band's name on the back, and another with the name of Lionel Messi, who the duo are fervent admirers of.

They then enjoyed a trip to the FC Barcelona Museum and had a meal on the terraces. Clearly thrilled by this opportunity, they also walked on the Camp Nou pitch and took plenty of pictures during their tour of the ground. They even took part in the #campnouexperience selfies competition being organised by FC Barcelona, and signed a shirt that will be given away as a prize for Barça Fans.

Calle 13, winners of 19 Latin Grammys and 2 Grammys, are part of the new generation of Latino artists campaigning against current social and political problems. After four years of world tours, they are presenting their fifth studio album and the single ‘Multi Viral’ at the Cruïlla Festival being held in Barcelona on July 11, 12 and 13.
