Vida 2014 is a new festival running across three different venues in Barcelona for four days, and it’s the place to be if you’re looking for somewhere to chill out and top up your tan while listening to some great live acts.
The festival kicks off with an exclusive opening party on Thursday 3rd at Molí de Mar- there were only 1,000 tickets to the opening party and they’re all sold out now, so if you managed to get your hands on one, well done!
On Friday and Saturday evening the action continues over at La Masia d’en Cabanyes with a range of international musicians and bands playing folk, rock, electronic music and everything in between. Rufus Wainwright, singer-songwriter M. Ward,and English rock band Archie Bronson Outfit will be taking to the stage on Friday; and Lana Del Rey, Yo La Tengo and electronic music band Austra are at the top of the bill on Saturday.
On Sunday you can listen to more great artists at La Daurada Beach Club from 11am. Enjoy music from Femme, Línia Maginot, Lost Twin and Bflecha. The beach club is the perfect setting for dancing your troubles away, with its bar-restaurant, nightclub, lounge and balcony terrace.
Other acts over the weekend include Catalan indie pop band Mishima, folk band Timber Timbre, Austra, Pional and Paus, among others. Tickets to the festival start at around €35, and the weekend is a great opportunity to get out of the big city and see a different side to the Barcelona area.
All the festival venues are accessible from Generator Barcelona.To get to La Masia d’en Cabanyes or to La Daurada Beach Club, take the train from Barcelona-Passeig de Gracia to Vilanova I La Geltru. From there each venue is a short taxi ride or walk away, and although the whole journey can take a couple of hours, it will be well worth the trip.
