Now that summer has come to an end, Madrid is welcoming back all those who left the capital in search of a holiday abroad. The city is preparing for a new cycle, without even leaving behind the good weather. During September, a transition occurs at the end of many summer activities such as summer theatres, swimming pools, terraces and outdoor living and instead, a new agenda that includes gastronomy, sports, culture, and general leisure starts emerging.
In the field of art, the most important exhibition is held until September 25th at del Prado Museum. "El Bosco. La exposición del Centenario” commemorates the death of the great Flemish painter Hieronymus Bosch from the 5th century. For this exhibition, el Prado welcomes 65 artworks from its own collection, along with other paintings from museums like Albertina and Vienna Kunsthistorisches, Fine Arts of Boston, Metropolitan New York, National Gallery in Washington and the Parisian Louvre.
Madrid's music scene continues its activity in the last throes of summer, taking advantage of September to celebrate the open-air festival DCODE for the sixth time. The concert is held in the Campus of the Complutense University. To keep up with the same style of large European festivals, on Saturday September 10th, 18 hours of non-stop indie rock music from both national and international bands will march the streets, with singers like Eagles of Death Metal, Bunbury and Love of Lesbian.
