There is something for everyone. Everyone can try something that fits their budget. The people can listen to artists playing live for them. The venues are diversified. They stretch from grand places like Palau de le Musica to small bars like Jamboree. The clubs like Harlem Jazz club has a very smoky appeal to its ambience.

The festival in Barcelona is known as Damm Festival International de Jazz de Barcelona. This year it should start on the 30th of October and end by the 30th of November. However, the line up of the various enriching and lively events has not yet been disclosed to the people. It has been kept as a surprise to increase the curiosity of the people who are interested in the event. The other interesting thing is a lot of the events which are held in public places and are free events. The audience does not need tickets to view the various events. They can watch the artists perform live for free. In case you intend to watch performance that requires ticket, you can book the tickets online through various websites in English, Catalan and Castellano. You can also book the tickets by calling the authorities and asking them to help you out. The authorities do everything possible to make the event reach out to the common people.

The company that is organizing the event this year is “The Company.” The festival is also being called the “Voll Damm”. The festival witnesses coming together of various artists under one legendary banner of the jazz music. If you are going to visit Spain during this time, it is worth a shot giving any one of the events a shot. You will be left speechless and spellbound as the makers put it.
