The festival will offer some unmissable concerts before it ends on 3 September.
The Mas i Mas Festival was originally conceived of as a way of bringing live music to Barcelona in the dead days of summer and has become a lively cycle of performances that run from electronic music every night at Moog and jazz at the Jamboree club to flamenco at Sala Tarantos and dance and classical music at the Palau de la Música and the Teatre Grec. The festival is scheduled to end on 3 September but before that there are two weeks full of shows of which we will recommend a few here.
One of the festival’s key venues is Palau de la Música, which will see classical music concerts including one by pianists Bernat Català (18 August) and Carles Marigó (24 August), as well as modern jazz with a tribute to Tete Montoliu featuring Ignasi Terraza & Bert van der Brink (25 August) and an appearance by jazz fusion outfit Incognito (1 September). Another important venue is Born Centre Cultural, where for the first time, the festival is staging night-time concerts. These feature local jazz and singer-songwriter talent like Quinteto Real, who will be playing on 26 August with their fusion of tango and jazz. There will also be performances that go beyond the confines of music at Teatre Grec: on 22 August there is a night of tango dedicated to Astor Piazzola; 24 August sees a concert version of the musical Rent; 26 August is for a magic show featuring Mag Lari, and in the last week of the festival there will be concerts by Andrea Motis (27 August), Paco Ibáñez (29 August), Los Mambo Jambo (3 September) and two nights of dance with the Gales IBStage on 1 and 2 September.
