The most interesting summer festivals in Barcelona

The most interesting summer festivals in Barcelona

Primavera Sound 2017, Sonar, Vida Festival, Cruilla…………..

I think we all feel how the summer is coming to Barcelona. We noticed it looking at the people and how they use less clothes, more people wearing shorts, no jacket, more girls wearing dress without stockings … The terraces are full, people are generally happier. And apart from going to the beach, how do people have fun in Barcelona? Doing outdoor activities, such as going to the open air cinema at Sala Montjuic or going to concerts and festivals, among other things. There is something for everyone. That´s why we have made a much wider selection of the most interesting events that will take place during the summer.


primavera sound 2017

Primavera Sound 2017

From 31st May to 4th June, the most awaited festival of this year will take place at Parc del Forum. The main stars are Bon Iver, The XX, Aphex Twin, Arcade Fire, Van Morrison and Solange. But there are other bands and djs very interesting that we think are essential: !!!, Local Natives, Mac DeMarco, Angel Olsen, John Talabot, Sau Poler or PAVVLA.

The tickets are sold out, but if you have another chance at Seatwave.

The good thing about this festival: the lineup. The bad: endless queues, distances and almost impossible to see a concert well located without having to give up to the previous concert.
