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 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!

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

Where? Multiple venues
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.
