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.

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.
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.
