The biggest festival in July is the Grec Festival El Grec which is a summer festival in Barcelona every year from June until the end of August. The Grec is Barcelona's largest dance, theatre and music festival with a series of top quality concerts and events in many venues in Barcelona throughout the month of July. Top concerts in July include Jamiroquai at the Cruilla Festival, legendary Irish band U2 who bring their Joshua tree tour to Barcelona and at this year's RockFest festival you can experience Aerosmith in concert.

For more music festivals in Barcelona in July this year choose from the Love the 90's festival, the Festival Cruilla, the RockFest, the Barcelona Beach Festival or the 1 day Matinee Summer Festival. Also in July is the gay Pride Barcelona festival which is always a festive event.

For smaller more intimate concerts try the summer night al fresco jazz concerts on the roof terraces of Gaudi houses, La Pedrera and Casa Batllo both designed by Antoni Gaudi and both on the street Passeig de Gracia.

To see a local neigbourhood festival with Catalan traditions in July in Barcelona visit the La Fiesta Mayor del Poble-sec in the Poble-sec neighbourhood of Barcelona. This is a week long festival with many local traditional Catalan activities including human tower building, processions, street parties, concerts and more.

Tourists can also see Catalan festival traditions every Saturday morning in front of Barcelona's cathedral at the weekly free outdoor Barcelona Festa Catalana which is at 11.30am on Saturdays from July to September.

More summer concerts in Barcelona. North of Barcelona in the Costa Brava there are summer concerts at the Jardins de Cap Roig Festival where you can see megastars in July and August. You can enjoyfree jazz and classical concerts in many Barcelona parks in the summer music parks programme called 'Música als Parcs'

Sala Montjuic is a summer open air cinema event in Barcelona during July and the beginning of August. Three times a week you can see open air big screen classic movies at Montjuic Castle on Montjuic hill. It's a really nice experience. Many Sala Montjuic fans bring a picnic, while enjoying the movie and live jazz concerts before each film.  The Sala Montjuic movies are V.O. Version Original, which means they are shown in the original language with Spanish subtitles.
