From the Foo Fighters and Alicia Keys to Bilbao's BBK Live and Barcelona's Primavera Sound, here are some of the best concerts and music festivals scheduled to take place throughout the year in Spain in 2022.

While many concerts and music festivals have been cancelled over the past two years due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, it seems that in 2022 there are a lot that are back on, with bands and musicians having rescheduled and others announcing new tours.

Many of Spain’s best music festivals are also back on for 2022 including Sónar, FIB Benicàssim, D-Code Festival and the Festival Jardins Pedralbes.

Currently, masks are required both in indoor public spaces and outdoors in Spain, where a distance can’t be maintained between people. Unless the situation changes, this means that it’s likely you will have to wear a mask during most of these concerts.

Some regions may also require you to show a Covid certificate in order to enter the venue. Find out all the regions that currently require you to show them and where HERE

Remember that due to the rapid change in the situation because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, it’s impossible to know if all of them will go ahead or not, so keep an eye out on the official websites you book on for updates.
