The acclaimed Picnic Beat music festival is back… Indie, Psychedelia, Garage and Soul in the open air!
Poble Espanyol is one of the most popular venues for holding concerts in Barcelona.
Open-air, fantastic acoustics, and far from the noise of traffic, the Main Square at the Poble is a unique space chosen by both Spanish and international artists year after year for their Barcelona concerts.
Poble Espanyol, located on Montjuïc mountain, is a perfect place to hold concerts in Barcelona.
The venue is a unique and original space where you can see live performances that offers many amenities not found in other concert halls in Barcelona: outdoor and indoor spaces, access by public transport (Pl. España metro stop, with connections to the FGC trains and numerous bus routes that stop right in front of the venue) and the option of parking in a private car park in the street behind.
Artists who want to hold their concerts in Barcelona choose Poble Espanyol because of all it has to offer: massive concerts can be held in the Main Square, our large outdoor space for large-scale musical events in Barcelona, a unique and unparalleled setting where both the artist and the audience will believe they are in the heart of a village. And intimate shows can be held in the tent where the capacity is more limited, but in return the artist is closer to the audience, in a relaxed atmosphere where the spectators are usually seated.
Many national and international artists who have come to Barcelona have chosen Poble Espanyol for their concerts, such as B.B. King, Bob Dylan, Mark Knopfler, Neil Young, Björk and Lenny Kravitz, among many others. Big festivals are also common, often bringing together more than a dozen bands during the event.
Without a doubt, Poble Espanyol is a unique place to enjoy the best concerts in Barcelona: for the proximity to the city centre, for the exceptional acoustics, for the great facilities, for the accessibility with different types of transport and for the great variety of artists that perform on our stages!
