Pedralbes and its cultural music festival
The Pedralbes Garden Festival is a project organized by Concert Studio. It has been on the music agenda for already 7 years now, thanks to the passion for music and the city of Barcelona, according to its organizers. The idea was to choose an open place in the outdoors, in contact with nature and with history. Thanks to the City Council of Barcelona and the Ministry of Culture of the Generalitat de Catalunya, the Pedralbes Palace Gardens were chosen as the location for the event. Currently the festival has grown to become a reference at European level. Some of the great artists that will be playing, among others, at the festival are Carla Bruni (June 5), Giorgio Moroder (June 22), Gary Clark Jr. (June 29), Joss Stone (July 3), Gilberto Gil (July 8), The Beach Boys (July 12), Albert Hammond (date to be confirmed). You can also listen to one of the most important national groups here: Los Planetas (June 14). This Andalusian ensemble will visit the Catalan capital for a concert with a symphony orchestra and a choir. It´s the ideal opportunity to enjoy the best Spanish indie music.
