The Festival Jardins de Pedralbes is an annual Barcelona music festival that takes places in the months of June and July at the former residence of the Spanish Royal Family, the Palau Reial, in the neighbourhood of Pedralbes just a short hop from Barcelona City Centre.
The festival is on its third edition and this year, the venue, known as Auditori Aire Lliure, is going to host a whole range of international and Spanish artists.
British pop veterans the Pet Shop Boys and Spandau Ballet are the June highlights along with flamenco dancer Sara Baras and the legendary Cuban combo led by Ry Cooder, Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club.
July kicks off at an even higher level, if anything, with Paul Weller, Chic featuring Nile Rodgers and the incredible Bob Dylan and later in the month we are in for a treat with flamenco singer Miguel Poveda.
