For 48 years Barcelona has played host to an annual jazz festival. The festival takes place in venues all over town and you will need to buy individual tickets for each event - there is not one ticket that covers the whole event. Other year's saw the likes of Wayne Shorter, Jimmy Cobb, Marcus Miller and Kings of Convenience on the line-up.
Depending on your budget, you should be able to find something on the line-up to quench your thirst to listen to some live jazz music - venues vary from the grand Palau de la Musica to small smoky bars like Jamboree and Harlem Jazz Club.
This page provides an overview to the festival events: the dates for the jazz festival a link to the full line-up and how to purchase tickets for the 'Voll-Damm Festival Internacional de Jazz de Barcelona'.
