Do you fancy going for a dance? You know we have plans of all kinds at Hostemplo. Today, as we already did last year , we bring you a proposal with the best festivals of Barcelona this season. Are you in? Let’s dance!


Last year we got a deeper insight into the most popular festivals in the city: the long-existing and quintessential indie Primavera Sound, the electric Sónar, the young and amusing Cruïlla and the recently born Barcelona Beach Festival.
We do believe that classics are always a safe bet, you only need to have a look at the roaster of performers! These festivals still are the very top of the top ones. Why? Arcade Fire, Aphex Twin and Bon Iver (among many others), will play at  Primavera Sound Sound 2017, Cerrone, Thundercat and DAW will be at Sónar 2017, Jamiroquai, Pet Shop Boys, Two Door Cinema Club and The Prodigy will play at Cruïlla 2017 and last (but not least), Armin van Buuren, Hardwell and Lost Frequencies will DJ at the second edition of Barcelona Beach Festival.
Watch out! For some of these festivals, full festival tickets may be already sold out… so if you really feel like going, book your ticket asap! On the other hand, many of these events also sell day tickets, hurry up!

VIDA festival

Festival Vida – Picture

This festival is one of a kind. They say so, and so it is. First of all, it takes place outside Barcelona (quite close, though).The four-day event is held in Vilanova i la Geltrú. We love the concept of the festival and that is why we would like to share it with you. As they explain in their web, the organization of the festival make a thorough selection of the artists, searching for a common characteristic: authenticity in their proposition; no matter if they already have a great career or not, their potential and projection is the most valuable.
Vida is sea, nature, light and also art. Its idyllic location provides them with amazing spots: three superb nature areas. It also counts of a camping zone connected to the rest of the spaces with a bus shuttle service, together with bikes, VIDA BIKES. What does it look like?
Apart from the singularities that make a unique event out of this festival, it also has a promising roaster of artists this year: Phoenix, Flaming Lips, Anímic… among many others on this great program.
