Barcelona All Set For Jazz Festival

Barcelona All Set For Jazz Festival

Barcelona is set to welcome some of the hottest jazz stars to its streets and legendary performance venues next month, with the 46th incarnation of the magnificent International Jazz Music Festival due to take place from October 11th.

The extravaganza consists of a month and a half of amazing performances that take place in venues across the city, with a full list of participating theatres available at the official website.

Those who experienced last year's line-up of Wayne Shorter, Jimmy Cobb, Marcus Miller and Kings of Convenience may well be wondering if this year's incarnation will be able to live up to the festival's reputation, but already the programme is looking promising.

Big jazz names set to appear include Rudresh Mahanthappa Gamak, Kenny Barron and Dave Holland, Till April, the Gary Burton Quartet, John Legend, Bruce James and Bella Black, Sopar and Blues and many more.

Events are held in various places across the city and there is unfortunately no ticket covering them all. Venues vary from the grand interior of the grand Palau de la Musica to small smoky bars such as Jamboree and Harlem Jazz Club.

However, it's worth having a look through the programme for those marked with the word 'gratis', which means 'free'. These take place in public streets and squares such as Plaza Catalunya and El Raval, and do not require a ticket.

The well-established nature of the festival means that it is immensely popular. Tickets for the most revered artists will likely sell out quickly so it is worth booking plenty of time in advance for your preferred act.

Be sure to make the 46th incarnation of the International Barcelona Jazz Festival part of your weekend break in this stunning city.
