Which Barcelona Big Events You Shouldn’t Miss

In present times, Barcelona is definitely a cultural metropolis – ‘a cultural crossroad’ – with excellent, carefully organized events and festivals reflecting this diversity. Some of these include the Sonar Festival, the International Jazz Festival, Asian film festivals, Fashion Week, the “Grec Festival”, The Catalonian Moto GP, Formula One: Spanish Grand Prix and many others. Let’s talk more about these events.

The fifteenth edition of Barcelona’s Advanced Music and Multimedia Art SONAR festival takes place in June 2008. Barcelona is home to S?NAR, the International Festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia, which brings together contemporary art, technology and music, providing a packed program of live acts and top DJs.

Taking place largely at the CCCB, Asian film festival in Barcelona will be the tenth edition of one of Europe’s top Asian film festivals. Why an Asian film festival in Barcelona? Well, for one thing Barcelona is now home to a large number of Asian immigrants. Languages: English and Spanish.

The “Teaching and Continuous Training” trade fair, formerly aka the “Sal? de l’Ensenyament” and now known as “Estudia”, is one of Barcelona’s big local trade fairs.

Barcelona likes to think itself as always at the height of fashion and its Fashion Week, the Pasarela Gaud? is its big annual event. “Moda Barcelona’s” next big event is June’s “BCN Bridal Week”.

Barcelona is one of the cultural capitals of Europe and there are always a number of exciting shows, pop, rock and classical concerts and exhibitions on each month. Summer is serious party time and busy time for Barcelona hotels, with week-long fiesta fun. But year-round the city sizzles – it’s always on the biting edge of architecture, food, fashion, style, music and good times. Tourists can find all types of holiday requirement – from economical Barcelona hotels to grand luxury and the very best in services and facilities.

Popularly known as the “Grec Festival”, Barcelona’s summer arts extravaganza is the most important cultural event of the season. Events take place at venues across the city including the Teatre Grec, Fundaci? Joan Mir? and Pla?a del Rei.

The Barcelona International Jazz Festival is one of Europe’s longest-running and most well-respected events. It takes place in the autumn, a perfect time to visit the city as the summer heat has subsided and there are less tourists and more hotels in Barcelona are available. The music comes in a wide variety of styles, from big bands and bebop to gospel and Latin jazz, consistently attracting a great line-up of international performers.

The Catalonian Moto GP is one of the most popular rounds of the World Championship. Taking place at the Circuit de Catalunya close to Barcelona, it attracts holidaymakers and race fans alike. The modern circuit has a capacity of 100,000, so the atmosphere is always electric.

Formula One is the king of motor sports. Since its inauguration in 1950, it has attracted the very best talents in the world of motor racing, hungry for the fabulous riches and unrivalled prestige it offers. The Circuit de Catalunya, just outside Barcelona, hosts the Gran Premio De Espana Telefonica 2008, otherwise known as the Spanish Grand Prix, the fourth race of the 2008 Formula One season.

And of course Christmas is a big event in Barcelona. If you are visiting Barcelona and going to be decorating the house for Christmas – particularly if you have a crib (Nativity scene), don’t miss the Feria de Santa Lucia, in the square in front of the Cathedral.
