More on the location
Be a tourist! – The botanical gardens in which the festival will take place belong to the Cap Roig Castle, a historical building located in a special enclave by the sea. A place where nature and calm reign supreme, it’s well-worth exploring and admiring, so make some time on your schedule to be in awe.
How to get there – If you’re going from Barcelona, a drive up the coast to Cap Roig Festival will take you around 1h30. If you prefer public transportation, taking the bus or a combination of bus and train will take from 3 to 4 hours and is a bit more expensive.
That’s pretty much it, you’re all set to go and enjoy the best music in the best of environments! Have fun and make sure to visit the festival’s official website for tickets and more information.
