Barcelona Beach Festival: This event is a newcomer on the city’s festival calendar, but will probably mark its territory right away in order to return. For its first edition the Barcelona Beach Festival is about to take place in the music loving Catalan metropolis to please electronic music fanciers. Be told: for its kick-off the BBF did not shrink from costs and efforts and convinces with a small but delightful line-up that is simply impressive. Among others huge stars like David Guetta and Avicii will heat up the crowd with their famous and pumping sounds. Feel warmly welcomed to take your spot in the crowd on July 26th at Platja de la Pau. Tickets are already on sale!
RockFest BCN: Faint hearted people can probably just skip to the next paragraph: here comes something heavy! On July 4th and 5th the RockFest BCN will return to Barcelona. Be prepared to face two days of hardcore and loud rock and heavy metal music right in the city centre of the Catalan capital at Parc de Can Zam de Santa Coloma de Gramenet. This event is of a special value to fans of stronger sounds since it is known for providing all kinds of metal and rock genres and staring a lot of famous national and international artists. Compared to a lot of other festivals tickets are pretty affordable and come to a price of no more than 60€ for both days!
