The summer arrives and we have made our mouth water with terraces, fashion, cinema, neighborhood parties and Sónar . These are 7 June plans that you can not miss.
Nights on the terrace of La Pedrera
Summers are special in Barcelona for many reasons. But this is one of our favorites: listen to the best of jazz on the terrace of La Pedrera at night . It is a flat, no doubt. First a bit of Gaudi with a free visit, then a glass on the roof accompanied by the best local and outside musicians. Every Friday and Saturday from June 9 to September 9 you have the opportunity to climb the rooftops of one of Barcelona’s most popular monuments on a different night.
Address: Carrer de Provença, 261-265
080 Barcelona Fashion
What would Barcelona be without fashion? Or what would fashion be without Barcelona? They seem two concepts too united to separate them.
That Barcelona has been at the forefront of the avant-garde is evident, just need to take a walk in its streets. We have always been a city to the last and, at times, ahead of our time. Barcelona has always been true to fashion, and fashion in Barcelona has its name: 080 Barcelona Fashion . This year it celebrates its twentieth edition, and it does so in a big way in the Modernist Place of Sant Pau from 26 to 30 June . In addition, after the parades continues the party with the “080 Barcelona Fashion Nights” with performances, concerts and presentations. They were not just going to be dressed in heart attack.

Tast a la Rambla
You are to eat, and you are to eat well. In Barcelona Secret we know it and we propose a plan that would leave to the monster of the cookies more than satisfied. Because you can eat haute cuisine for four euros, or at least it will be possible during the weekend that goes from 8 to 11 June on the Rambla. Nearly 50 restaurants in the city will make available to anyone the highest author cuisine, traditional cuisine, tapas and pastry. For those who are left wanting more, activities and gastronomic tastings will complete four days of authentic gluttony.

Festa Major de la Trinitat Nova
Who says that in the neighborhood parties one does not have a good time? Of course in those of Trinitat Nova no there is time or space for the boredom of the quantity and variety of activities that happen during the week of the holidays. From 5 to 11 June you have everything for all audiences: correfoc, castles of fire, water games, craft beer fair, soccer tournaments, snacks, chocolate …. Whoever warns you is not a traitor, next week you have to go to Nou Barris.

The event of the 22nd International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in Barcelona (there are already a few) will be held from 8 to 17 June at the French Institute. As it could not be otherwise, awareness and social factor are very important in a program in which films from Germany, Iceland, France, Finland, Brazil, Mexico, Iran or Mongolia are participating this year. A whole cultural remix to continue fighting against intolerance from the culture and the cinema.

Week of the terraces
The attics of 73 hotels in Barcelona are open for 10 days to the public to enjoy more than 250 free activities. From the 2nd of June until the 11th, anyone can enjoy all that the hotel terraces offer in our city. From live music, dances, workshops, games for children, tapas …. 73 hotels give it a go …
It is an emblem of Barcelona and could not miss our list this month. This year is the 15th, 16th and 17th of June, which will resonate with the best of electronic and experimental music. Sonar of Day and Sonar of Night return one more year (much has already traveled since 1994). Is it worth the heat of summer for those 3 days of absolute musical madness? Of course, and more with a poster with names like Kinder Malo & Pimp Flaco, Justice, Eric Prydz, Moderat, Marco Carola, Soulwax, Jon Hopkins, Dj Shadow, Carl Craig or Tiga.
