Are you thinking about spending August in Barcelona? We say, yes, come to Barca! You won’t lack the opportunities to cool off by the beaches and swimming pools, nor will you lack the hot summer parties and live concerts. August is the month when the locals leave the city for their summer holidays, but there are still many things to do and see. Apart from events that take place whole summer and that we already wrote about, such as The Dinner With the Stars (Sopar amb estrelles) at the Fabra Observatory on Tibidabo hill, the music festival Piknic Electronik, and Musica als Parcs, free open air jazz and classical concerts in the parks of Barcelona, here is what we recommend in August.
If you’re in July in Barcelona, you can find everything you need for a perfect summer vacation: live music performances, food and beer festivals, beach activities and lots of sightseeing material. July is the time when you can find big street neighbourhood parties, music festivals and of course, get a bit of tan and refreshment on the Barceloneta beach. The good thing is – if you’re staying in our hostel, everything is well connected and near. Here are eleven events in Barcelona you should not miss in July, from Poblenou Beer Festival to Open Air cinema on the beach!
