After the Easter parade called “passejada amb barret”, where hundreds of people walked along Rambla Catalunya to welcome the springtime wearing a hat, now the Plaça del Rei (The King’s square) bursts into full bloom with folk music every Friday evening until late at night. It’s a perfect chance to enjoy traditional music in the Gothic quarter of Barcelona at an open-air medieval square for free. It’s a festival that has been taking place for so long. This year celebrates its 57th edition with dance workshops (from 9:30 to 10 pm) and traditional music played by different bands till midnight.

Here you have the programme to join the merry dancers or get a kick out of the traditional music from around the world.

Eva
Hello, there! I’m Eva. I’m 33 years old and happy to live in Barcelona, where I was born. Enthusiastic, dynamic, open-minded, friendly and patient. I have always had itchy feet and enjoyed travelling and exploring new places. Eager to learn more and more every day and embark on new adventures for treasure hunts. A Barcelona lover who becomes homesick when is far from her charming city for a long period of time. I like mingling with the melting pot, getting lost in the narrowest medieval streets of the Gothic quarter and smelling the aroma of countless enticing cafés. An excellent hostess and tour guide.
