The Top Upcoming Music Festivals in Barcelona this Summer

At Barcelona Segway Tour we love music, which is why you will hear some great local artists in our offices. We also know that whether you’re traveling alone or with company, traveling can sometimes feel like a solitary and chaotic activity.

Thankfully Barcelona is here to welcome you into its sunny and beautiful city, where feeling alone is not an option, among the many sights, bars, and activities, the city stands out for its artistic and musical flair. Which is why Barcelona hosts some of the biggest festivals in Europe, and we want you to enjoy them with us!

Last month we joined more than 120,000 people from all over the world at the Sonar Music Festival. We not only got to see some great local talent like Bad Gyal and BFlecha, but we were lucky enough to see some amazing international artists like De La Soul and Justice. But of course one of the more fun things about attending music festivals is being introduced to new hot talent, this year we got to know Kiddy Smile, Keys N Krates, and Stööki Sound (among many others) and we can’t get enough of their beats. 

Don’t worry if you weren’t able to join us this time around, you can Segway your way there with us next year. In the meantime we want to recommend some of the hottest upcoming festivals so you too can join the fun! 

  • DGTL Music Festival – August 11-12, 2017
    DGTL not only focuses on exploring undiscovered musical talents, but is constantly on the lookout for the latest technological innovations that tackle issues like sustainability to present you with a different kind of festival experience- one that’s fun for you and good for the earth.

  • The Ark Cruise – August 31 – September 03, 2017
    The first festival in the world on a cruise ship, need we say more? We will anyways, the ticket includes a round trip cruise that starts and ends in Barcelona, with pit stops in Marseille and Ibiza. Oh and did we mention the ship also includes swimming pools and rock climbing facilities… you’re welcome.

  • Parallel Festival – September 1-3, 2017
    Parallel Festival is the summer camp experience for grown ups. 3 days in rural Catalonia, Pyrenees to be exact- located 1.5 hours from the city, you have the chance to camp out, enjoy new music in an intimate setting with an unforgettable scenic background that will make your instagram game the envy of all your friends.

Don’t worry about missing out in the city sights, our Segway and BeBike tours are a great way to see the city before and/or after the festivities. We wish you fun and safe attendance, and look forward to hearing your festival experiences when you join us in our tours!
