Live Music Venues - Costa Brava

by Mike
(Norfolk, UK)

Hi

We are two mad musicians heading to the Costa Brava.
We are playing some gigs in France and then heading into Spain for some fun and sun around from July to August.

Do you know of any restaurants or bars that might want a couple of musicians (busking or paid).

We have a small caravan attached so we will have a look at your camping site recommendations as well.

Anything else we should know?

Kind regards
Mike & Sue

Hi Mike and Sue

Thanks for contacting us.

There are a few restaurants/bars on the Costa Brava that we know host live music.

Mas Pi - Verges

We have been to their live music sessions on Friday evenings a few times and they are always great fun.

They definitely hire small bands and solo artists.

Contact them on...

Blue Sky Cafe - Empuriabrava

This is a recommendation from a friend of ours, so we can’t vouch for it ourselves, but we have been told that Blue Sky Cafe has good live music.

Not sure if they hire international bands, but you can contact them on...

Heliogabal - Barcelona

Heliogabal is a cool arty bar in Barcelona that hosts local and international small bands and solo artists. They also have poetry nights and art exhibitions.

Sunset Jazz Club - Girona

This is good live music venue bar in the old town of Girona. They only host jazz bands (as their name might suggest), but looking at your website, I can see jazz is one of your influences.

They hire local and international bands.

Contact them on...

Pasko’s Balkan Grill - Mas Fumats (near Roses)

This restaurant is owned by a Serbian family and hosts live music a couple of nights a week in the summer months.

The food is great, but we haven’t actually been to a live music night here before. We think the music is generally local bands, but it would be worth contacting them to see if they would host an international band.

L’Hostal - Cadaques

L’Hostal is a bar in lovely Cadaques that hosts all different types of live music. It’s a really nice intimate venue. An old haunt of Salvador Dali.

Their website is not yet up and running, but you can contact by email on...

info@lhostalcadaques.com


Hope you manage to sort out a few gigs. Keep us updated, we might be able to pop along. We can also let our other readers know.

Not sure what type of camping experience you like, but the campgrounds near the coastal towns on the Costa Brava tend to be quite big. In land you will find smaller more basic camping sites. We haven’t yet finished those campsite recommendations, but hope to soon.

Best of luck with your trip and gigs. Sounds like fun.

P.S. not sure if the Beatles are your thing, but the Beatles weekend in L’Estartit is pretty good fun (13-15 July).

Live Music Costa Brava Spain
by: Paul

Hi Mike, Sue

Did you find any venues on the Costa Brava that you could play your music at?

I play classical guitar and plan to travel around Spain later this year and would like to be able play at a few venues. I'm not so fussed about being paid, it's more for the fun of it.

Thanks
