Summer nights in botanic gardens under the Madrid sky. Could there be a better setting for a music festival? From late June and throughout the month of July, Noches del Botánico is preparing its second edition. Though the acts for 2017 are yet to be announced, last year's inaugural festival included the likes of Wilco, M83, The Lumineers, Benjamin Clementine, Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters, and Patti Smith, among others. It's an eclectic collection of Spanish and international artists who encompass jazz, rock, pop, Latin music, flamenco and electronica, with the Alfonso XIII Royal Botanic Gardens as the backdrop.
