Raise your hand if you fancy any of these things: discovering the best indie music at Primavera Sound, improve your mind for free on Museums’ Night, discovering beer and food markets outdoors, shouting with the big Metallica, getting back to your teenager years at the Backstreet Boys’ concert or spending a day with the kids surrounded by good music
Let’s start May with a series of ideal proposals to enjoy the city of Barcelona during the good weather. Don’t miss it!
MAY MEANS MUSEUMS
