The best live concerts in Barcelona this year

Barcelona is known as the city of art, music, colour and parties. If you bring all these ingredients together, the first thing that comes to mind is a live show or concert. The truth is that Barcelona is an expert when it comes to live shows & music concerts, and this 2023 arrives with more concerts than ever, with international artists showcasing their talent in the Catalan capital.

If you’re the kind of person who keeps your festival must-have kit by the bedside, so that you’re ready when the occasion arises, here at Lugaris we’d like to present you with the best live shows in Barcelona this year. Choose the one that catches your attention and buy your tickets as soon as possible, because they sell out fast! 

Live concerts in January in Barcelona

We are going to highlight some of the events in Barcelona that are related to music, ordered by dates. Of course, we’ll start with January, a month full of surprises. We’re back from the Christmas holidays and we’re tired of the familiar, local atmosphere that characterises these dates.
What you need is to disconnect and there is no better way to do it than cheering up a friend and buying a ticket for Justin Bieber‘s concert, the young man who is able to move the masses. The concert will take place on 25 January at the Palau Sant Jordi and will be a must for lovers of the most modern and youthful music.

Live concerts in February in Barcelona

February, the month of love, is also packed with concerts in Barcelona and this time it even offers a full festival. The month starts off strong with a concert by Bad Gyal at the Palau Sant Jordi. This event will take place on 11 February and could become your ideal gift if you want to celebrate Valentine’s Day in advance.

A few days later, the music events in Barcelona 2023 begin in Sitges: we are talking about the Sitges Carnival. It’s a 4-day festival with many activities and concerts that you can discover in the official programme. Make a note of the dates 16, 17, 18 and 20 February, because you can’t miss it.

Finally, we would like to introduce you to the Barcelona 2023 half marathon, but not so that you can put on your running shoes and go for a run (which you can also do), but so that you can go to the closing concerts. The atmosphere on that day is unbeatable, as the athletes are very happy with what they have achieved and have all the energy to celebrate.

Live shows in March in Barcelona

March is March, the month when spring arrives. There’s no better way to welcome the flowers, the colours and the pollen than by attending one of the live shows in Barcelona 2023. We start on 8 March with a very special concert by the Pixies and their alternative rock that will make you vibrate.

We continue with the concert by Roger Waters from Pink Floyd on 21 March, where you will bring out your most rebellious side and fight to build a better world. Finally, on 25 and 25 March, Stokie singer Robbie Williams will delight us with his romantic and sensitive lyrics at the Palau Sant Jordi.

March is exploding, so you can’t miss it!


Concerts in April in Barcelona

Let’s continue to learn about the best concerts of the year in Barcelona, specifically, those that take place in April. In Spain and Catalonia there is a saying that says that April is a rainy month, but this year 2023 we are going to have to change it, because this month has become the month of the classics. During the month of April you will have the opportunity to reminisce about the old days and enjoy every song of your favourite singer-songwriters.

First of all, we have Eros Ramazzotti‘s concert at the Palau Sant Jordi on 2 April. We all know the Italian pop singer-songwriter’s most legendary songs, so it’s possible that you’ll be screaming so loud at the concert that the next day you won’t be able to get to the office. 

To end the month, the concert calendar offers us Bruce Springsteen‘s performance at the Olympic Stadium. This American singer still makes his fans’ hair stand on end at his concerts.

Live shows in May in Barcelona

In May, the summer heat starts to arrive little by little and people are looking for any excuse to let off steam in the open air after the winter. That’s why it has become the month of concerts and this year’s dates confirm it. During the month of May you will be able to see real stars shine on the stages of Barcelona.

The first concert in May will be by Elton John and his profound lyrics, on the 22nd and 23rd at the Palau Sant Jordi. Next up is Coldplay, who will be playing on 24, 25, 27 and 28 May at the Estadi Olímpic, although we guess you know that this concert sold out a few hours after it was announced.

Live shows in June in Barcelona

June is finally here, the month most awaited by festival lovers. This month kicks off a series of festivals that will take place throughout the summer and where the craziest and most exciting parties of 2023 will take place. If you’re someone who enjoys music, but can’t get enough of a single concert, check out these festivals.

The first 3 days of the month, that is, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of June, Primavera Sound 2023 takes place. This festival, which moves away from the more commercial trends, will offer concerts of the best rock, pop, hip hop and electronic music bands of the moment. Are you going to go to this festival? We present you our accommodation near the Forum in Barcelona, so you’ll be just a stone’s throw away from Primavera Sound. 

In mid-June we have another well-known festival, Sonar 2023, which is packed with innovative music and new sounds never heard before. You can enjoy this festival on 15, 16 and 17 June.

Live shows in July in Barcelona

We continue with the month of July and one of the most awaited festivals, Cruïlla 2023, which will be held on 6, 7 and 8 July in different venues in Barcelona. This is one of the events most loved by the people of Barcelona, as it brings together music of all kinds, so that everyone can find their place and not miss out on the live music.

You can check the programme on their website, the same place where you can buy your tickets for 1 day, for 2 days or for the whole festival. This year’s Cruïlla will be a party you won’t want to miss!

Live shows in August in Barcelona

August is the hottest month of the year and there’s no better way to cool off than with a good splash of music. The programme of concerts and live shows that will take place in August 2023 will be released soon, so you can buy your tickets in advance.

Live shows in September in Barcelona

In September the routine wheel starts again. It’s time to get all the projects that have come up over the summer underway, but everyone needs a break. The dates of the concerts to be held in September will be announced soon, allowing you to take a break during this intense month.

Live concerts in October in Barcelona

In October we welcome autumn, the time with the most free days of the year. We don’t know if you’re one of those who celebrates Halloween, the Castanyada or a mixture of the two festivals. What is clear is that you like music and you are not going to miss the best concerts of the season. This month you will be able to have a throwback of the nineties as you rejoice with the late 90s/early 2000s pop-punk band Blink-182, which will be playing Palau Sant Jordi on the 4th October. 

Stay tuned to this platform, because the dates of the concerts scheduled for October 2023 will be released soon.

Live shows in November in Barcelona

In the penultimate month of the year the cold has completely arrived in Barcelona and you’re probably looking for the best plans to keep warm. Concerts in November 2023 may be the best option to maintain a stable body temperature, while you give it your all on the dance floor, with your favourite songs. Moreover, you will also be able to enjoy the International Jazz Festival, held at several amazing venues in Barcelona such as El Liceu opera house. November also sees the arrival of one of the most eagerly awaited concerts in Barcelona: Madonna, the queen of Pop, who will be performing at the Palau Sant Jordi on 2 November.

Dates for the November concerts will be released soon, so be ready to be the first to buy your tickets.

Live shows in December in Barcelona

We come to the end of 2023 having enjoyed a year full of concerts, music and partying. The only thing you need to do now is celebrate in style with one of the concerts in the city of Barcelona. One of the best options is to enjoy an incredible Christmas carol recital that is held every year in Palau de la Música on the 26th December, a very emotional show that is the perfect event to visit this amazing space. 

Information about the concerts in December will be coming out soon, so don’t go offline and be the first to find out so you can tell your friends and have a good farewell to the year.
