    More details on some of the events this January:

    New Year’s Eve

    • Date: 31st December to 1st January
    • Venue: Across the city

    It wouldn’t be right to start listing the best events of the month without mentioning what comes first and New Year’s ticks that box.

    If you happen to be in town on the big night and are looking to start 2020 with a bang, don’t get confused if you head out before 10 pm and notice a lot of the city centre isn’t so busy. Locals like to leave it as close to 12 as possible before going out to the streets and having a party.

    Our location on Sant Jordi is great on the night, and other neighbourhoods like Gràcia and Poblenou are worth making the short trip to as well. 

    Three Kings Night Barcelona 2020

    Three Kings Night

    Date: 5th January

    Venue: Across the city

    On the night of the 12th day of Christmas (the Epiphany), we have a parade in town that thousands come out, even though it is chilly, to see. It’s one of our most celebrated days in the calendar and it a big deal for children, who will get gifts that night.

    The parade starts at Ciutadella Park, just down the road from the hotel.

    Sant Antoni Festival

    • Date: 11th to 20th January
    • Venue: Across the city

    With a neighbourhood named after him, it’s only fitting that we have Sant Antoni Festival taking place every year. It’s a week of parades, celebrations and masses that have everything from dancing giants to a pig raffle (you don’t actually win a pig).

    It’s a very unique and typically Catalan affair which showcases the best of the area.

    St. Anthony’s Procession

    • Date: 17th January
    • Venue: Across the city

    In the middle of Sant Antoni Festival, you’ll find the only day of the year where you’ll see dozens of cats and dogs in chapels around town. St. Anthony’s Procession is a significant holy day here in Barcelona. Local can bring their pets to mass to get blessed before the main processions make their way through the streets.

    There are several you can go and see, but the most well-known is the one in Eixample.

    FC Barcelona v Granada

    FC Barcelona v Granada

    • Date: 19th January
    • Venue: Camp Nou

    It’s a little crazy to think we’ll be more than halfway through the month before Barcelona play their first league game at home, but that’s exactly what’s going down with this Sunday fixture.

    If you’ve never been to a Barcelona game before, this is your chance. The atmosphere in the stadium is always incredible, and the home crowd savour every second of the action.

    Match tickets can be purchased on the official FC Barcelona site here.

    James Arthur

    • Date: 22nd January
    • Venue: Razzmatazz

    Rarely does an artist break the mould of coming from a TV show like The X Factor and proves themselves are a certified pop star in their own right. But that’s just what James Arthur has managed to do after winning the UK version of the show in 2012.

    With over 23 million streams a month on Spotify and touring off the release of third album You, the show is going to be a great midweek pick me up.

    Full ticket information is available on the Razzmatazz website here.

    Keane Concert at Razzmatazz Barcelona


    • Date: 23rd January
    • Venue: Razzmatazz

    With Cause and Effect being their first full studio album since 2012, Keane are back with a return to form that sees them coming to town for one night.

    It will have been almost 15 years since their debut album Hopes and Fears came out, and we’re expecting to hear many of their best hits including Everybody’s Changing, This Is the Last Time and Is It Any Wonder?

    Tickets start at €35 and can be purchased on the Razzmatazz website here.

    Beethoven 250

    • Date: 24th – 26th  January
    • Venue: L'Auditori

    Classical music lovers are in for a treat with this weekend dedicated to arguably the greatest composer of all time. Each night sees the Barcelona Symphony and National Orchestra of Catalonia tackle one of Beethoven’s works with conductor Jan Willem de Vriend looking after affairs.

    Each performance is attempting to recreate the atmosphere of when Beethoven performed at the Imperial Palace of Vienna in 1814. Tickets start at €12 and can be purchased on the L'Auditori website here.

    Angel Olson

    • Date: 29th  January
    • Venue: Razzmatazz

    With over 1.5 million monthly streams on Spotify, the Missouri native is swapping the sights and sounds of Asheville for the hum and drum of the main room in Razzmatazz. This is one of two Spanish dates on her All Mirrors European tour.

    Dream Theater

    • Date: 29th January
    • Venue: Sant Jordi Club

    Get your earplugs at the ready as American prog-metal group Dream Theater come back to town. The Sant Jordi Club is an excellent venue for a performance like this, as long as Dream Theater don’t aim on tearing the roof off the place when stopping by on their Distance Over Time tour.
