Every September, the beautiful central Catalan town of Vic hosts an extensive 'market of live music', aimed at giving both professionals and the public the chance to hear a wide range of different genres and discover up-and-coming acts, as they enjoy four days of concerts and related activities. A lot of the focus is on bands from Catalonia, Spain and the Mediterranean area, but musicians from other places can also be found on the programme. Performances, some of which are free, are given across the city at venues both indoors and out, including the emblematic Plaça Major, and throughout the event, the streets will be filled with buskers, adding to the musical extravaganza taking place. While there, it's also worth taking the time to explore Vic, a place rich with history, from the Roman temple to the cathedral, ecclesiastical museum, and medieval and modernista buildings. And don't forget to try the local gastronomic speciality, cured meats.

"Vic is a beautiful town near Barcelona. A friend took me to explore this music festival and while I was there I sampled the local cured sausage and now I feel like a local."
