Karime AmayaFlamenco star Karime Amaya takes part in this year's Mas i Mas festival
The Mas i Mas Festival returns to Barcelona as loud as ever.
The festival, which takes place over several days and various venues, has become a permanent and much-anticipated fixture on the city’s August calendar. Since its launch in 2003, hundreds of artists have performed and this year’s festivities are sure to live up to the promise of past events.
Indeed, the 34 dates in total make Mas i Mas more of a music marathon than a festival, and whether you choose multiple concerts to attend or are more selective about your choice of performer, there is certainly something at the Mas i Mas Festival for everyone.
For example, fans of classical music will enjoy Harmonía del Parnàs and Astrid Steinschaden, while jazz enthusiasts should look out for the the Roberto Fonseca Quartet, Benny Golson Quartet and Ignasi Terraza Trio. Other genres include techno, from DJs such as Dark Vektor and Undo, and flamenco, courtesy of Karime Amaya and A Media Luz. For fans of short, sharp bursts of music, the Barcelona History Museum and Palau de la Música are hosting 30-minute concerts.
Prices range from €4 to €54, but average around the €8 mark. Concerts taken place in various locations around Barcelona, including Jamboree, Moog, Palau de la Música Catalana and Tarantos. Check the Mas i Mas Festival website for further details.
