Barcelona – the jewel of the Mediterranean and the city that never sleeps. With its beach, modernist and gothic architecture and hordes of tourists in Leo Messi shirts there are few finer places to enjoy overpriced drinks and get your bag pinched on your way home.

It’s also a must on most bands’ European tours, and the home of the 1992 Olympics has more concert venues that it really needs. Just remember, you’re not in Spain, you’re in Catalonia.

Click on the name of the band or artist for further information, including info about the venue, links to a selection of videos and, if available, an example of a recent set – it of course being absolutely no guarantee that that will be the same set of songs they play on the night they’re in Barcelona.

And if you can’t resist the temptation to check out any of these little beauties live, then you’ll also find links to buy tickets from a reliable and reputable source.
