Travelers may have their mp3 player handy while visiting Spain, but nothing beats hearing music live. When these individuals pick up a car rental in Barcelona
this spring, they can plot a course for the city’s annual Guitar Festival.
At this event, which is set for April, professional guitar players from around the world descend on Barcelona to show off their mastery of the instrument. No matter what type of music visitors enjoy, they are sure to hear something that aligns with their tastes as performers strum and pluck classical, jazz and Latin-inspired melodies.
Those who plan to attend the festival, which has been going since 1990, will benefit from having a car rental in Spain
, as performances are held at venues throughout Barcelona. In 2011, the festival attracted such performers as Rafa Pons, Ariel Rot and Lax 'n' Busto.
If travelers cannot make it to Barcelona in time for the Guitar Festival, but still want to take in a concert, they should consider stopping by such venues as Palau de la Musica Catalana or L’Auditori to enjoy a live musical performance.
