A great classical music festival that sees the best local talent and renowned artists get to work with the National Orchestra of Catalonia, Festival Emergents is back for its 4th edition.
This year the festival has over 20 performances lined up that over the musical spectrum; from Brahm’s Double Concerto to the National Youth Choir of Catalonia. Many of the events are less than €20, making it a good idea for an evening out even if you’re not the biggest classical music lover.
4. FC Barcelona Vs Real Sociedad or Leganes
Date: 8th or 22nd March
Venue: Camp Nou
There’s no atmosphere quite like that of a home game at Camp Nou. FC Barcelona has two games at home this month that will be great to see, especially as we approach the final few weeks of the league.
Because El Clásico will have taken place in Madrid at the start of the month, tickets shouldn’t be too dear for home games, with €50 a reasonable baseline price. Just remember to buy tickets through official sites.
5. Barcelona Taste Food Tours
Date: Throughout March
Venue: Across the city
You really can’t beat a crisp spring morning walking through the city with a fresh coffee and being able to take in the sights. Spring is arguably the best time to go on a food tour, and Barcelona Taste Food Tours do some of the best for English speaking guests.
They commonly run tours in neighbourhoods like Poble-Sec, giving you a real sense of what the local food scene is like. And if you’re staying with us for a long weekend, see if you can book a space in their Eixample tapas tour which only takes place on Mondays.
6. Half Moon Run
Date: 6th March
Venue La Nau
There’s nothing better than a slice of Canadian indie rock to get you going on a Friday night.
The Montreal natives are coming back to Barcelona on their European tour as only one of two Spanish dates on the back of their latest album A Blemish in the Great Light.
Tickets start at €24.
7. The 1975
Date: 9th March
Venue: Sant Jordi Club
In what is probably going to be the gig of the month, The 1975 come back to town on a whirlwind European tour that sees them perform everywhere from Glasgow to Zurich this month.
Their shows are a mixture of their biggest hits like Chocolate, Girls and It’s Not Living with plenty of deep cuts from their albums.
8. Barcelona Marathon
Date: 15th March
Venue: Across the city
