Once again this autumn, Barcelona will become the hub of the international jazz scene The Barcelona Jazz Festival, a reference event sponsored by Voll-Damm, returns for another 30 days of top bands and artists filling playing at music venues across the city.
Sonny Rollins, Brad Mehldau and Chick Corea are just some of the big Spanish and international stars who will gather in town between 30th October and 30th November to delight fans of jazz, soul and swing. The headlining concerts include soul performances by Lee Fields, the silken voice of Melody Gardot, the fantastic compositions of Van Dyke Parks, fado concerts by Mariza and Carminho, the big band explosion that is La Locomotora Negra and the ever-exciting presence of Andrew Motis accompanied by Joan Chamorro.
Michel Camilo and Tomatito will play L’Auditori on 7th November
Palau de la Música, Apolo and Luz Gas, the Harlem Jazz Club and L’Auditori are just some of the venues where you can catch the festival’s extensive line-up, which includes over 70 concerts and related activities. Last year’s event drew an incredible 90,000 strong crowd and this year’s promises to be just as big!
