Barcelona is undoubtedly one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. In fact, it offers a really interesting cultural and leisure activities during all the months of the year. However, on this occasion, we want to focus on proposing activities that you can do alone, with your partner, or with your family, during the month of August.
Music als Parcs Concert
'Music als Parcs' or 'Music in the Parks' is the name with which a cultural initiative is known, intending to take live performances to all the parks in the City of Barcelona. The concerts have a very complete schedule that includes both daily and weekends belonging to a variety of genres.
Cap Roig Festival
Until the middle of August, it is possible to continue enjoying the Cap Roig Festival in Peralada Castle, one of the most spectacular places in Costa Brava. A large number of artists attend this festival, as you can see on its itinerary. The price of the tickets depends on each particular event.

A day on the beach
The month of August is perfect for enjoying all the charm of Barcelona's beaches. If you do not mind being on a busy beach, then you will love soaking up the atmosphere. Our advice is to take advantage of a day in Sant Sebastià, Barceloneta, Somorrostro or Sant Miquel. On the other hand, if you prefer tranquility, get away from the centre of the city to visit Castelldefels and Sitges.
A night of music and partying
As with the beaches, during the month of August the nightclubs in Barcelona are filled with great atmosphere. If you love those that are near the sea, Opium Mar, Carpe Diem or Eclipse Bar are the ideal clubs to enjoy an evening of music and fun in good company.
The Gràcia Festival
The celebrations start on August 15th and continue for the next 7 days. The events start in the early hours of the morning and last until late evening so you have a variety of options at your fingertips. Among them, we must highlight the 'Grilled Matin' or 'Matinada de Grallers', that is to say, the firecrackers and firework displays that marks the beginning of the holidays. There is also the 'Cercavila', which is the event that completes the celebrations.
Do not miss out on the chance to enjoy all the leisure and entertainment activities offered by Barcelona during the month of August. This is the time that the city brings out all its charm.
