Madrid's terraces, both earth-bound and on rooftops get to play host once again to this concert series that's already a summer favourite in cities such as Barcelona, Sevilla and San Sebastián, among others. Every performance can hold only a limited amount of audience members, creating quite an intimate ambience between musicians and their public. In Madrid, the rooftops of Hotel Innside Suecia and Hotel Índigo are among those where you can spend an incomparable evening with music from Coque Malla, Sr. Chinarro, Carlos Sadness and many more. Tickets are around €15 in advance, and the exact location of the concerts will be revealed just before each takes place.Read more
