Music in the Parks in Barcelona this summer
Having started more than 10 years ago and with the aim of making high quality music accessible to everyone, “Music in the Parks” concerts are held in some of Barcelona’s loveliest parks and green spaces. Thus, for the modest price of nothing, festival-goers can enjoy the two cycles comprising the event. And, whilst a wide variety of musical performances will be held throughout the festival, Jazz concerts will run from June to August on Wednesdays and Fridays at 10pm in Parc Ciutadella in front of the stunning fountain there, and July will bring a change in tone and move towards Classical music, a perfect way to enjoy the warm, pleasant summer months in Barcelona in a perfect setting.
In addition, the festival consists of a varied programme therefore there is guaranteed to be something to suit all tastes, and the over 20 planned sessions will be taking place in various green spaces such as the Turó Park, the Jardins de la Tamarita, the Parc Diagonal Mar, Parc Ciutadella and even in famous Parc Güell.
Furthermore, a new introduction in 2008 was the municipal band that occasionally boosts the programme on Thursdays with crowd pleasers from Gershwin, and West Side Story, amongst others.
To conclude, a perfect way to spend some of your time in Barcelona and an ideal opportunity to take advantage of the pleasant Mediterranean climate enjoyed by the locals in summer.
