It has become a classic in the days of August; San Miguel Mas i Mas Festival turns Barcelona into musical epicenter. With a wide variety of concerts, ranging from Jazz to Techno through playing flamenco and other types of music as the Soul, this edition offers more than 300 performances in 8 spaces of the city to the delight of the audience.

Mas i Mas Festival was created in 2003, and now in its twelfth edition, it has not only achieved the goal of providing a first class cultural activity during the month of less activity in the city, but it has established itself as a Classic festival in Barcelona.

Mas i Mas will begin with a performance by guitar legend Jeff Beck. The rock star will perform at the inaugural concert in Poble Espanyol on July 10 as a preamble to the festival. The final concert, on August 29 at Palau de la Música, will be played by Aloe Blacc, the new sensation of international soul & funk.

In addition, there will be the presence of such prominent artists as Vestard Shimkus, Daniel Ligorio, Lluís Rodríguez Salva, China Moses & Raphael Lemonnier, Freddy Cole and Lucky Peterson Band, among other great artists. There will be a free concert by the Municipal Band of Barcelona on July 31 in Plaça del Rei.
