Festival Jardins Pedralbes
If there is a unique and exclusive festival in Barcelona, this is the Pedralbes Music Festival that is held every year in an unbeatable location full of art and nature.

Within the line up for this year, artists such as Love of Lesbian, Loquillo, Rosario, Manel, Raphael, Woodkid, Miguel Poveda, Aitana, Amaia and Nathy Peluso stand out.
And as is tradition in each edition, the Village will continue to host performances by talented emerging artists to promote music in the city.
Grec Festival 2021
If there is a musical classic in Barcelona that is the Festival del Grec. And it is that here every year top-level international artists stand out who bring their best repertoire for the pleasure of those who love good music.
In this 2021 edition, the Grec presents artists of the stature of Fatoumata Diawara and the Cuban diva Omara Portuondo, among others.
Likewise, this year it will feature other invited artists who had not yet performed here, such as the national Sopa de Cabra and Love of Lesbian along with other great international names such as Trio Da Kali, Cimafunk, Concha Buika and Rodrigo Cuevas. Without a doubt, the Teatre Grec is a musical festival not to be missed for true music lovers.
The Monumental Club festival
If there is an anti-bullfighting city par excellence that is Barcelona. For this reason, the Monumental bullring has become in recent years a place full of joy and destined for parties with live music. And it is that this imposing architectural work cannot have a better use than for art and music.
Don’t be surprised that in the past great concerts by established and historical artists were also held here, such as the Beatles’ case more than 50 years ago.
In this edition for 2021, the Monumental will dress up with the presence of artists such as Javiera Mena, Da Souza, La La Love You, El
