A Few March Events

For anyone interested in modern art, the big news this month is the reopening of the Fundació Antoni Tàpies which closed its doors two years ago for renovations. On the 5th, 6th and 7th of March, the museum will be free with special activities and guided tours.

Meanwhile, for music lovers, Julián Candón will be bringing his unique brand of pop-rock española to Sala Begood, which is quickly becoming one of the more popular venues in the city.

For those with an affinity for Flamenco, this is the month to visit with De Cajón Festival de Flamenco. This year they have a fantastic line-up that mixes famous artists in this genre with some of the finest up and coming talents. The concerts are being held at a number of venues across the city, from the world renowned Palau de la Música and El Gran Teatre del Liceu, to the more cozy and intimate surroundings of Luz de Gas and Teatre Joventut. Ticket prices vary depending on the concert and venue, but full details are available at The Project website.

Some of the highlights include performances by María Toledo, Alba Guerrero, Alba Carmona, La Shica, José el Francés, and Augustí Espin, who all take to the stage in Luz de Gas. Jorge Mesa performs his piece “El Pirata” in Apolo [2], while Tomasito play in the larger Sala Apolo. Los Planetas will be bringing their exciting brand of flamenco/rock fusion to the Palau de la Música, which will also host a concert by Antonio Canales and Amador Rojas. The legendary José Mercé plays in El Gran Teatre del Liceu, and Camerón take to the stage in Teatre Joventut.
