Band Tours to the Costa Brava
Discover the stunning coastline of the Costa Brava, with its lively resorts and expansive beaches, ideal for relaxing and soaking up the summer sunshine. A short excursion to Barcelona allows your band to take in Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia and Parc Güell, as well as the bars, restaurants and cafés situated along the famous Las Ramblas.
The combination of a warm climate, coastal ambience and many great concert locations ensures your Costa Brava experience is thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Where to Play
Plaça de les Meliès, Pineda de Mar
In the fun beach resort of Pineda de Mar, locals and tourists pull up a chair to listen to early evening aperitif concerts in the buzzing main square. The friendly locals will even present you with a memento from the town as a thank-you for your concert.
Passeig Mossen Verdaguer, Tossa de Mar
Evening concerts on the seaside promenade in Tossa de Mar see a bustling and passionate tourist audience gather. Performances take place against the shadows of the castle ruins; an extremely dramatic scene.
Hotel Olympic Park, Lloret de Mar
Perform on the purpose built stage in one of Lloret de Mar’s quality hotels. The Pergola room has terrace doors which, in good weather, open out into the hotel grounds offering your audience the perfect opportunity to sit back with a beverage and enjoy your group’s performance.
A lovely small town tucked-away up the coast from Lloret de Mar; summer concerts in the town square at Platja D’Aro are a delight. The local residents are noted for their hospitality and they will gather on mass to support your band performance, presenting groups with a goody bag as a personal thank you from the town.
Located on Montjuic Hill in Barcelona, Poble Espanyol is one of our favourite venues and is the ideal way to combine a day in the city with an excellent concert.

All of our tours are bespoke, therefore the itinerary below is simply an example; the duration, concert venues, leisure excursions and accommodation centre used will be selected to match the requirements of your group. Please contact us to discuss your bespoke itinerary.
La Sagrada Familia - Gaudí’s extraordinary unfinished temple. Whilst still under construction, its imposing towers are probably the most famous symbol of Barcelona.
Gothic Quarter - This charming area of winding narrow streets is dominated by the imposing cathedral. Spend some time relaxing in one of the many cafés or shopping for souvenirs.
Nou Camp Stadium - Your first view inside Nou Camp stadium is likely to take your breath away. With fully seated capacity for 98,700 people, it is the largest all-seater stadium in Europe and number three in the world. Whether a football fan or not, a visit here is a memorable experience for all!
Las Ramblas - This is Barcelona’s most famous street, lined with shops, cafés and many street entertainers. A stroll down the central walkway to Plaça Catalunya is a great way to experience the true diversity of this thriving city.
