With a penchant for non-stop, round-the-clock partying, the denizens of Barcelona are constantly looking for stimulus and as a result, the musicians and artists who come to play Barcelona concerts range from the biggest A-listers in the world and top-of-the-line DJs, to soloists and folk rockers looking to make a name for themselves. And of course once the shows end – party with the rest of the city until the sun comes up.
Seeing concerts in Barcelona isn’t much different than other major cities as there are enormous arenas filled with the top performers of the day, to rinky-dink venues with wannabes and yet-to-be-discovereds.
The biggest places to see major shows and concerts are at Camp Nou (home of FC Barcelona), Palau Sant Jordi, and Pavello Olimpic de Badalona. On any given night, these varying live music venues play host to rockers, rappers, top DJs, solo artists, and international superstars.
Beyond the big name venues, Barcelona has tons of great smaller haunts where live jazz concerts, salsa shows, flamenco concerts, and classical performances bring in those with more discerning tastes.
There’s also no shortage of spots with more intimate surroundings for live music. Smaller joints play host to budding talents, folk artists, up-and-coming stars, and the like in neighborhoods all over town.
