This spring some famous names in the world of music are playing in Barcelona, with something for all musical tastes. First up we have the Backstreet Boys (Sant Jordi Club, February the 20th). Beyonce also plays at the Sant Jordi club shortly afterwards on the 24th of March, followed by Franz Ferdinand (Sant Jordi Club, April the 5th), then Katie Melua (Sant Jordi Club, April the 17th).

Spring is of course festival season as well. Each spring we in Barcelona are lucky enough to experience the Primavera Sound Festival , this year Primavera Sound lands the Forum from May the 29th to May the 31st and the line up will include names such as Nine Inch Nails, The Pixies, DJ Zero and Julian Cope.

Hot on the heals of one global music festival comes another, the Sónar Festival (June 12-14) where Massive Attack, Richie Hawtin and Four Tet will be playing.
