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 Verges
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. Its eclectic non-stop style doesn’t let you stay at home. An excellent hostess and tour guide.
