Given the wide range of musical genres, from classical to flamenco, from rock to jazz and everything in between, it is almost impossible to provide a definitive list of Barcelona Music Venues.
The city obviously has a selection of regular venues, including clubs and concert halls, that put on concerts all year round but it is in the summer that the city really comes to life musically.
Major Barcelona Festivals such as Sònar, Primavera Sound, Festival dels Jardins de Pedralbes or Les Festes de la Mercè mean that a whole new set of Barcelona Music Venues come into play, including historic buildings, theatres and there is even a programme of Summer Concerts in Barcelona Churches.
All in all, Barcelona is a great place to watch and listen to music not only because of the wide variety of performers it attracts from the the internationally famous to homegrown talent but also because of the fantastic choice of Barcelona Music Venues on offer.
Incidentally, if you don't find the venue you're looking for, it may be a theatre that is only occasionally used for live music in which case, you should check the Barcelona Theatres page.
Equally, given that the Catalan capital has such a vibrant flamenco scene, I have created a separate page for Flamenco in Barcelona.
