Perhaps not as well-known as its Barcelona music festival peers, Primavera Sound and Sónar, Cruïlla is ideal for those people looking for top-notch, interesting bands that tend towards the indie and alternative, along with smaller crowds and a more compact programme. Based in the same venue as Primavera, the Parc del Fòrum, recent lineups have been featured a broad mix for music lovers of all ages: 2016 welcomed Robert Plant, Alabama Shakes, Skunk Anansie and Cat Power as well as local acts like Animal, Adrià Puntí and Ramon Mirabet. Anyone wanting a kid-friendly festival should certainly consider Cruïlla, which has a real family vibe, particularly on the Sunday. As well as the music, additional activities are laid on including puppets, traditional games, painting and sessions at the nearby adventure park, Barcelona Bosc Urbà. Add in food trucks, a market with clothes, accessories and beauty treatments, free WiFi and a cashless payment system, and your perfect summer weekend is set!

"If you're looking for interesting bands that play indie and alternative music, put this down in your diary. A concise programme of events featuring activities for people of all ages, especially on Sunday."
