While most of the people involved with organising live music in Barcelona head off on a well-deserved holiday in August, the yearly Mas i Mas festival keeps the city's concert scene going with a packed programme of performances including jazz, swing, blues, soul, song music and flamenco. The venues this year will be Teatre Coliseum, the historic Jamboree jazz club, as well as techno club Moog and the flamenco venue Tarantos, all of which are located in the very heart of the city.

The opening concert will take place at the outstanding Teatre Coliseum, on 31 July, with one of today's greatest brass bands: Lucky Chops. On the same stage the following artists will perform: Incognito (5 August), Electro Deluxe (11 August), Andrea Motis Swing Tribute(23 August), Juan Perro Sexteto (25 August) and Clarence Bekker Band (31 August), in charge of the closing of the 16th edition of the festival.

The week from 1 to 7 August, something new will happen this year in the Jamboree program: the Global Music Foundation Barcelona'18. This is a series of concerts, workshops and after hours sessions, with top artists (Bruce Barth, Eddie Henderson, René Marie, plus others). They will not only perform at the Jamboree, but will also offer seminars to students who enroll, and will take place at the Taller de Músics and the Club Natació Atlètic Barceloneta.
