Are you thinking of taking a trip to Europe this summer without forgetting about music? If you travel to Spain, you will have the possibility to enjoy some of the best international artists and, at the same time, tour incredible cities and enjoy fantastic culture, beaches and food. Let me tell about the greatest series of concerts in Spain in 2021.

In recent months we have been seeing how the situation against COVID-19 has developed. This has created certain expectations for the celebration of festivals this year, depending on how many people are vaccinated. Here are some of the most interesting festival and concert series suggestions, who have already announced their line-ups:

Noches del Botánico, Madrid

Noches del Botánico will take place in Madrid, at the Royal Alfonso XIII Botanical Garden during the months of June and July. A natural environment that will host artists of different genres. From pop to jazz, through Latin and electronic sounds. Last edition we were able to see artists like Ben Harper, Keane or Michael Bolton, bringing together more than 65,000 people. Attendees will also be able to enjoy a market and great food. It’s a fantastic option for those who are thinking of traveling to Madrid this summer and enjoy some of the best music.

  • Location: Madrid, Spain.
  • Date: June – July of 2021.

Las noches del Malecón, Murcia

Celebrated in Murcia, in the southeast of Spain, this event will take place during the months of May, June and July. It hosts great Spanish artists, such as Iván Ferreiro, Zahara and Muerdo. In addition to the concerts, Malecón will also include performances by outstanding comedians like Faemino y Cansado, Goyo Jiménez and Martita de Graná. A great way to practice your Spanish! Without doubt one of the most interesting cultural events in the country this year.

In case you haven’t visited Murcia yet, this is your chance. It is not the most known place in Spain, but if you want to enjoy good food and the Mediterranean coast, it is absolutely perfect. Very close to the city of Murcia – where these concerts take place – there are many towns that you can visit, such as Águilas, La Manga or San Pedro del Pinatar. They’re full of natural landscapes and beautiful beaches.

Both established and emerging artists in the country’s music scene will participate, including Arnau Griso, Nil Moliner, Xoel López and Andrés Suárez. Additionally, there are especially interesting gastronomic offers, comedy shows and activities for children.

Moreover, if you’ve never visited this part of Andalucía, summer is a great chance to visit the Cabo de Gata Natural Park. Just half an hour away from the concert venue, there are some of the most astonishing beaches in the country. They are located in protected areas, so they are very well preserved. On one of the beaches, some scenes from the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade were filmed.

The line-up includes some of the most compelling Spanish artists of the moment, such as El Kanka, Sofía Ellar and Carlos Sadness, accompanied by international acts like Film Cinematic Orchestra and the world-famous violinist Ara Malikian.
