Guitar Fest BCN
Considered to be amongst Barcelona’s most iconic festivals, the 24th edition of the Guitar Festival BCN kicks off with a change of direction.
Known until now as the Festival de Guitarra, this new edition promises to be an innovative, young and alternative change. What makes the Guitar Festival BCN different from the other alternative music festivals is what also makes it worthwhile. The festival intends to bring groups whose music revolves around the guitar to the forefront, while offering an intimate setting and an open approach to the many different trends in the world of the guitar, from the classical to the avant-garde. Eels, Ron Sexsmith, Lucinda Williams, Madeleine Peyroux, and Patrick Watson are just some of the international artists performing at the festival, while Antònia Font, Delafé y las Flores Azules and Standstill make up some of the local artists who will be up on stage. Also present are singer-songwriters such as Nacho Vegas and Quique González, as well as up and coming artists Anni B Sweet and Jane Joyd. The festival ends on a high with the master of the guitar, Paco de Lucía, taking the stage. With 40 concerts in various venues in Barcelona during the months of February, March, April, May and June, it will be hard to miss the opportunity to hear any one of these great musicians perform.
Concerts take place in various locations. For more information on concerts and ticket purchase, click here.
