Looking for things to do in Barcelona in June? Summer is upon us and the Catalan capital is buzzing with activity! Don’t miss these fun happenings in Barcelona in June!
Celebrate summer with Sant Joan
On the night of the 23rd of June, expect some serious noise all around Barcelona, Catalonia and other parts of Spain. La Nit de Sant Joan, or Saint John’s eve, is the enormous midsummer celebration, closely coinciding with the summer solstice. It’s no wonder this night is often referred to as la nit de foc or the night of fire. The reason being, fire is the biggest element of this celebration as bonfires, firecrackers and fireworks fill the warm night’s air. The most common place to celebrate this night is on the beach. Furthermore, head to Barceloneta just before the sun goes down to grab a spot and enjoy the festivities.
Learn how to SUP
June is a hot month in Barcelona, and there’s no better time than to get wet and enjoy beach activities and sports. The calm waters of the Mediterranean are not ideal for pro-surfers, but they’re fantastic for activities like stand-up paddle surf, or SUP, a sport that has become very popular in the last few years. The people over at SUP Barcelona can set you up with everything you need for a calm but invigorating time on the water.
See live music at Primavera Sound
One of Barcelona’s most anticipated music festivals falls each year during the month of June. Tickets might be hard to find for Primavera Sound, but the search will be worth it for huge names like Radiohead and LCD Sound System.
Barcelona is a big dot on the map as far as electronic music goes, in large part due to Sónar, an emblematic electronic music festival that was born here in the mid-90s. Divided into two parts, Sónar by Day and Sónar by Night, concert-goers from all over Europe and the world come to Barcelona to attend the festival or at least one day of it. This festival is without a doubt one of our favorite things to in Barcelona in June!
Go Rooftop Terrace Hopping
There’s a little hidden secret in Barcelona, and that’s that during the warmer months of the year, dozens of hotel terraces open up for guests as well as the public to enjoy. Awesome space, good food and drinks and incredible views to boot…how can you say no to that? It won’t be the cheapest drink in the city, but it will definitely be worth it.
