25th Guitar Festival Barcelona continues until 5th of july

11 Mar

The Guitar Festival of Barcelona celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and brings along one of the best musical proposals for this spring. This celebratory edition is marked by a wide range of genres, from the Spanish guitar to hard rock, with the guitar-based music as a core theme, thus appealing to a young, modern and more urban audience.

The festival showcases great acts such as the London-based indie rock band Fanfarlo, opening this edition on the 20th of February at the BARTS Theatre and the Spanish singer Rosario presenting her new album on the 5th of March at Palau de la Musica.

Other headliners include the british old-timers The Stranglers on the 1st of April, Spanish singer Luz Casal on the 20th of March and the UK-based group Crystal Fighters displaying their alternative rock, guitar-based dance music at Sant Jordi Club on the 15th of May.

Festival of the Millenium will be held until 23rd May

Festival Mil.leni Barcelona

Festival Mil.leni Barcelona

Each year, Barcelona enjoys the Festival del Milenio (Festival of the Millenium). This year the fifteenth edition began in November and will end on May 23. There will be a total of thirty concerts in different venues around the city. This year Van Morrison led the cartel, playing last December at the Liceu, but the festival stands out the variety of styles: flamenco has a great representation (Estrella Morente, Miguel Poveda, Tomatito and José Merce are good examples), but there is also room for pop (Lori Meyers, Delafé y las Flores Azules), and other artists such as the French minimalist Yann Tiersen, or the Balkan composer Goran Bregovic.

Concerts from March are:

  • 13/3 | 21:00h | Sisa, Portet y Oliver
  • 24/3 | 21:00h | José Mercé + José Manuel Zapata
  • 28/3 | 21:00h | Rachid Taha
  • 4/4 | 21:00 | Delafé y las Flores Azules

  • 24/4 | 21:00h | Standstill

  • 25/4 | 21:00h | Roger Mas
  • 29/4 | 21:00h | Goran Bregovic
  • 8/5 | 21:00h | Yann Tiersen

  • 23/5 | 21:00h | Miss Cafeina
