Guitar BCN 2018
Music pop, jazz, folk ..., Festivals
01/27/2018 - 06/26/2018
This may essentially be a festival based on only one instrument, but the sounds, performers and styles on the programme could scarcely be more wide-ranging. The skill of the organisers, leading Spanish music promoters The Project, in bringing together Catalan, Spanish, European and international performers from a variety of musical genres is quite something. Flamenco to pop, classic Cuban to contemporary Catalan, acoustic and electric, emerging and veteran acts – all this and more fills the many city venues that take part in Guitar BCN.
This year marks its 29th edition and the lineup is as exciting as ever. The inaugural concert features Jorge Drexler (27/1) at Gran Teatre del Liceu. Also Bob Dylan (30 and 31/03) at Gran Teatre del Liceu and Ringo Starr (26/6) at the Palau Sant Jordi. Also on the bill are the mythical Deacon Blue (1/2) at sala Barts; India Martinez (17/2), at Sant Jordi Club and other such as Rozalén (22/2), Rosario (2/3), M. Arnal i M. Bagés (3/3), David Otero (16/3), G3 (7/04), Asaf Avidan (26/04), Joan Queralt & The Seasicks (4/05), Pau Vallvé (10/05), Juanito Makandé (25/05) etc.
