There are so many things to do in Barcelona during the summer! Sure you've always got fun in the sun along Barcelona's coastline, but you can also revel in huge music festivals such as Sónar and Cruïlla, outdoor film festivals, big local festivals including St John's feast day and the Gràcia neighbourhood's big party. There's also Gay Pride, the CaixaForum Summer Nights series of concerts, the city's huge performance arts Grec festival, and more.
