Music Venues in Barcelona

Written by James

The Spanish are famous for their longstanding love and appreciation of all forms of music. Barcelona is considered to be one of the most culturally rich cities in all of Europe, and residents and visitors are treated to an eclectic selection of musical performances annually. Some of the music venues in Barcelona are quite famous, and the following article will examine some of the most popular. This article will also provide information about finding and renting suitable Barcelona apartments, no matter how long you plan on staying for.

Barcelona Music Venues

Barcelona is perhaps the most forward thinking city in Spain when it comes to music, and is the host of countless concerts throughout the year. The city is also famous for its music festivals, including the Sonar Electronic Music festival that occurs in the summer, and the Barcelona Jazz Festival that takes place in early autumn. The schedules of the various music venues found around the city will vary greatly so always remember to check a venue’s website for final details on who’s playing. Check out this Time Out piece on the best music venues in the city and this article by the Barcelona Tourist Guide.

Sala Apolo

The Sala Apolo is one of Barcelona’s best-loved music venues, and is home to a variety of concerts in different genres including rock, pop and folk. The Sala Apolo has an excellent sound system and is also frequented by performing electronic artists.

Sidecar Factory Club

The Sidecar Factory Club is ideal for those looking for the next big thing, and has been operating as a music venue in Barcelona for the past 25 years. The Sidecar Factory Club attracts music lovers of all genres, and is the best place in the city to see the most popular underground music acts.


The Bikini music venue has one of the best sound systems in the whole of Barcelona, and as a result is a favourite among international hip-hop, dance and jazz acts.

Renting Apartments in Barcelona

There are a large number of letting agents currently operating in Barcelona, but all readers are advised to rent from a flexible agency such as ShBarcelona, who are the current leaders in the single month rental market. Flexible agencies allow the tenant to choose the length of their rental agreement, rather than the agency determining how long the property is available for. ShBarcelona have apartments available for a day or a year, and everything in between. This makes them ideal for both short term and long term rental in Barcelona. Readers who are considering on permanently moving to Barcelona should also contact ShBarcelona, as the company has a large selection of properties available to buy.
