Festival Jardins Palau Reial de Pedralbes in Barcelona is a stellar music festival held at the gardens of a former royal palace from 5 June to 14 July.
This festival is unique not only for its attraction of big stars but not least for its sumptuous setting. Palau Reial de Pedralbes was the Spanish Royal Family’s residence from 1919 until 1931 when they visited the city and nowadays it is home to several museums and is the permanent seat of the Union for the Mediterranean.
In the festival organisers’ own words: “The venue transpired fresh air, freedom, elegance, romanticism, prestige, life, emotion, mystery… Both the festival and the artistic proposal had to be like that. They will be nights with big names of the international scene. We are preparing an auditorium to enjoy the performances and we want to provide excellent facilities for the best possible experience. To enhance the fact that, very close to the heart of the city, there is a summer festival in the open air.”
Line-up of this year’s performances include: Rufus Wainwright, Kool & The Gang, Tony Bennett, Sting, The Beach Boys..
