We are in the final stretch of spring and Barcelona prepares to welcome the most eagerly anticipate music festivals of the year: Primavera Sound and Sónar Festival. From Well and Come, your boutique hotel in Barcelona, we want to show you these magnificent festivals that will start off the Mediterranean summer.
A long day at the spa or a day on the beach are great ways to relax , but if you are looking to disconnect from everyday life, a weekend in which music is the main star, and also it takes place Barcelona, sounds like the best choice. A schedule filled with emotion means that you deserve a great rest and a boutique hotel in Barcelona that’s elegant and welcoming, much like Well and Come, is an option to consider for if you’re looking for comfort and style in the centre of Barcelona.
Primavera Sound, a different festival
Primavera Sound, stands out from all the other festivals and is characterized by an artistic line up of pop, rock and more underground sounds of dance music. It takes place from the 28th of May to the 3rd of June in the Parc Del Fòrum, an exceptional venue which is only 20 minutes by metro from our boutique hotel in Barcelona. The festival programme this year welcomes artists such as Arctic Monkeys, Björk, Nick Cave, The XX and The National, amongst many other artists who make up an exceptional line up.
Sónar 2018, a leader in the electronic
Sónar is an excellent festival offering urban electronic music and in this edition it brings us the biggest artists alongside up and coming talent in all areas of music and audio visual production. On the 14th, 15th and 16th of June the city of Barcelona will be the main hub for the most urban electronic music with Sónar Day and Sónar Nightt. By day Sónar is held within the Fira de Montjüic, which is approximately 25 minutes by metro from Well and Come and for Sónar Night we recommend going by taxi and the journey will take around 20 minutes. The line up this year has various big name artists such as Gorillaz, Thom Yorke and Modeselektor.
Music takes over the city
If you are in Barcelona during these days and you can’t make it to either of the two festivals, don’t worry! There is a great complementary musical offering across the whole city, we have picked out the daily concerts that will take place in the district of Raval on the same days as Primavera Sound and the offerings of the most iconic clubs on the days that Sónar takes place, which is better known as Off Sónar. Also, if what you’re looking for is to relax in a unique environment then we suggest trying out our rooftop which has a swimming pool.
