When the good weather arrives it’s time for the music festivals. Some are made outdoors, others in the venues prepared for entertainment, but all with good music and big names in the music scene. Barcelona and its surroundings are infected by the atmosphere that arrives when the temperature starts to rise. That’s why today we propose you five festivals that can not be missed at the MuchaMasia facilities starting in May. Our hostel is located ten minutes from the airport and the center of Barcelona, in El Prat de Llobregat.
The first of four festivals: BCN Film Festival
From the 22nd to the 30th of April, Barcelona will become a cinema. A different and seductive cinema. The Barcelona International Film Festival explores the links between Cinema, Literature and History. The films selected are mostly adaptations of literary works, productions related to some historical fact and biographical films about relevant personalities. Therefore, this festival is special. In addition, it is held at Verdi Cinemas, in the heart of the Gràcia district of Barcelona, one of the ones we like the most because of its special atmosphere.
The BCN Film Festival has all its programming ready in the following link.
Primavera Sound does not need a presentation. We have highlighted it as one of the five festivals of Barcelona that you should not miss. It has everything for lovers of indie music and no longer just indie. Primavera Sound evolves into a phenomenon that makes it a unique event. This year the festival has male and female artists and the repertoire is so wide that it is difficult to single out one artist. There will be plenty of Rosalía, the unstoppable voice of world music, as well as J Balvin, the Colombian author of reggaetone music. For the more 90s there will also be Suede, Built to Spill, Primal Scream and others. The Primavera Sound is celebrated in the Forum site. You can arrive by metro from MuchaMasia: Line 9 to Collblanc, line 5 to Verdaguer, and line 4 to Fòrum.
The poster is endless, that’s why we leave it here. From May 30 to June 1.
Festival of the Jardins de Pedralbes
And another proposal to enjoy culture is the Festival dels Jardins de Pedralbes. This idea of festival fits with a quieter music format in a unique environment such as the gardens of Pedralbes. The Jardines de Pedralbes Festival lasts more than a month, with performances from June 5 to July 15. For now, Mariah Carey (June 1) has confirmed her performances Woody Allen (June 18) and Gary Clark Jr. (June 29). The poster will be defined in the coming days.
Also, getting to the Jardins de Pedralbes Festival from Muchamasia is very easy. Metro Line 9 in El Prat Station and get off at the University Zone. Walking five minutes, you’re already sitting in the audience.
Pride BCN 2019
On the weekend of June 28 and 29 the multicolored flag takes possession of Barcelona to commemorate the Pride BCN 2019. The festival that fights for freedom, dignity and respect for LGTBI people. There are so many activities that are programmed that the whole city bustles those days. The big moment arrives with the Pride Parade on Saturday, June 29. Colorful, music and vindication in an event that you can not miss.
In addition, throughout the previous week there are also cineforums, guided tours of Barcelona and many concerts. You will find all the updated information on their website. From MuchaMasia we strongly support the struggle for the dignity of all people who claim their rights.
