Primavera Sound, tunes and tapas. The ultimate tailor-made festival tour to Barcelona
Head to the Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona and explore one of the world’s most fascinating places.
At the end of May one of Europe’s most celebrated music festival takes place in Barcelona, the Primavera Sound. Set on the seafront with a wide range of bands of all styles have made the festival a meeting point for music lovers of all generations and styles.
The 5-day festival has always succeeded in bringing together the latest independent music tendencies and artists with a long-standing successful career. All styles and genres are represented. The organisers are fully committed to bring in quality pop, rock bands and the most underground, trendiest DJ’s of electronic and dance music. Pick and choose your favourites and party the day and night away.
The inner-city location allows you to come and go as you please. If Radiohead or Steve Aoki aren’t your thing, check out Barcelona’s magnificent sites. All major sites such as the Las Ramblas, the Sagrada Familia or the Parc Guell can be reached easily. Tick them off your list, then head back to the festival for Arcade Fire or David Guetta’s latest set. There’s so much more to do and to see. ATO will tell where to buy the latest vintage clothes, guide you to the best viewing spot overlooking the city or how to skip the queues at the famous Barcelona FC’s Nou Camp museum.
And when you need to refuel and rest you don’t have to crawl into your wet sleeping back with a cold burger. Also, no tent building dramas needed! With a tailor-made festival from ATO you just slip into the comfy bed of your hotel room or have a fabulous meal in one of the many fantastic restaurants in Barcelona.
Alternatively, just have a quite drink and try some of the amazing tapa’s Barcelona’s bars and restaurants have to offer before heading back to the festival. We will tell where to go to enjoy the best Tapa’s in town. Stroll around the old city, and especially the Gothic quarter – next to the popular La Rambla – to get a wonderful glimpse and a real feel for the town. Every corner is full of history and, from the old Jewish quarter, el Call, to the secluded medieval alleyways that define the neighbourhood, you’ll find charming little squares, streets or patios in many buildings that are open to the public. Head to the ubertrendy Born area to shop for the latest designer clothes and furniture.
Either way you will feel afresh the next morning and can start the day relaxing by the beach before heading to the festival again. Yes, the beach, because it will be warm. There’s no need to worry about drizzling rain and muddy fields.
This tailor-made festival tour won’t be a once in a lifetime experience. You will come back year after year!
Brief itinerary and tour highlights:
As an optional extension we recommend a visit to Sitges. Only a short train journey away from Barcelona the former fishing town, famous for its gay nightlife, is to Barcelona what Brighton is to London. But Sitges has much more to offer. It’s laid back atmosphere and beautiful architecture will make you feel homely right away. It’s the perfect contrast to your busy days in Barcelona.
