From June 7 until August 31, about 30 green spaces in Barcelona will become the improvised stage for the 50 live music concerts organized by the city council with the collaboration of the districts and other municipal entities.

Encourage music and care of green spaces

For more than 15 years, this summer event dedicated to music was born with the intention of bringing culture and quality music to the public of the city. Thus, year after year with the arrival of good weather everybody, grownups, children, tourists and residents have the opportunity to enjoy the various free concerts held in the city parks.

You can listen to sounds from jazz to blues; classical, choral… The musicians and performers of this event are young promises, musical school formations or orchestras in the city, previously selected by the jury of each edition to mark the rhythm of these evenings.

However, besides bringing good music outdoors, being accessible for all, this event has as an additional purpose, to encourage the use of municipal parks as areas of coexistence and leisure, claiming them as a natural space, ideal to go with all the family during the afternoons and nights of the summer.

Charming walks in Barcelona

During this cycle of concerts in the Ciudad Condal, some of the parks holding these concerts are:

  • Jardins d’Interior d’Illa de Gaietà Renom
  • Jardins de la Mediterrànea
  • Parc Central de Nou Barris
  • Parc de la Creueta del Coll
  • Parc de Joan Miró
  • Parc de la Ciutadella: probably the most popular park of the city. It dates from the end of the XIX century and has extensive gardens and a majestic central fountain that makes it a mandatory visit.

There is no better way to know the identity of a city than walking through its streets and touring each of its corners. Because Barcelona is precisely one of those cities that invites you to be discover by foot, we propose a route that begins in our hotel in the center of Barcelona and that ends with a drink towards the sea.

We encourage you to get lost between the modernist buildings and the emblematic architectures of Paseo de Gracia, going down this main street just outside just outside our lobby. Then, you will stumble across Las Ramblas: continue along this historic street until you reach Barceloneta Beach. Once in front of the sea, you can make a stop at Agua or Bestial restaurants, both an exquisite proposal from Grupo Tragaluz, which will accompany your Barcelona experience with a unique gastronomic moment.

Of course, if you find any of the parks on the way, or a detour that takes you to them, look out for those voices that enliven the summer nights in Barcelona. Enjoy the rhythm of summer!
