Black Music Festival
Even though it doesn’t take place in Barcelona, the 13th annual celebration of black music—the Black Music Festival 2014—is well worth the trip to Girona. This year’s festival has gone all out, inviting acts of the likes of John Mayall, the blues legend—who is touring for his 80th (!) anniversary tour—and the Spin Doctors, who will be promoting their fifth studio album.
There will be plenty of other international and Spanish acts that will each in their own way pay tribute to the roots of black music and blues. Workshops, courses, and exhibitions will be going on throughout the month. Add some big gospel choirs to the mix and an hour’s train journey doesn’t seem like much to catch some of the world’s greatest blues acts.
