No less than 360 festivals per year take place in Catalonia, 250 of them in summer
Warm summer nights with a sea breeze freshening up the air, hot summer days at the beach or in squares around the territory, mountains covered in vineyards. Catalonia definitely has the ideal conditions to be the land of summer festivals. With around 250 music festivals from June to September there are lots of choices with something for all tastes: Rock, pop, jazz, indie, folk and classical music. The Catalan summer festival program kicking back with a cold glass of wine or head banging in the first row.
There are a total of around 360 music festivals a year in Catalonia andlive music is attracting more and more people. This summer, many of the Catalan music festivals have hung the sign of “sold out” announcing record assistance figures. The live music industry has experienced an increase over the past year— 48% in spectators, 14% in concerts and 29% in employees—according to a study from the Group Enderrock and the Catalan Association of Professional Representatives, Promotors and Managers presented in July.
