Struggling to come to terms with the end of summer? It's not all doom and gloom: the autumn in Barcelona has its fair share of festivals!

autumn festivals Barcelona

The best-known festivals in Barcelona (Primavera Sound, Sónar) are held in the spring – but the music goes on all year round! Here are a few options for the autumn.

Autumn festivals in Barcelona: the BAM Festival

The BAM (Barcelona Acción Música) festival is held in September, during the Mercè Festival, which includes a wide variety of free events.

Over the course of 4 days, stages are set up across the city (Port Vell, Plaça Catalunya, Plaça Sant Jaume, Plaça dels Angels, etc.), playing host to a continuous stream of groups. See the event programme for more details.

Why? For free fun!
When? 20st – 23th September 2019
How much? Free
Where? City-wide, in public areas

Barcelona Jazz Festival

The Barcelona Jazz Festival is a major cultural event, held across several venues, including the sublime Palau de la Música and the Harlem Jazz Club. There are no passes for this festival: you’ll need to buy separate tickets for each concert you want to see. That way, you can tailor the experience to your tastes!

Why? For the quality programme
When? 4th October – 20th December 2019
How much? From €10
Where? Multiple venues

Mira Festival

The Mira Festival follows a similar concept to Sónar, featuring electro music and visual arts. Mira means “look” in Spanish – like the English word “admire”.

Each musical performance is accompanied by a video projection, creating a decidedly psychedelic feel! See below for a quick taster:

The Mira Festival is an original initiative focused on multi-sensory experiences. A number of multimedia workshops are organised in parallel, including conferences, courses and debates.

Why? To experience something new
When? 5th – 9th November 2019
How much? From €20 (more details and booking here)
