Minimúsica for kids

Minimúsica aims to integrate children into the festival's musical offer and to contribute to the musical education of children by exposing them to live modern music, arguing that childhood is not linked to a concrete type of music nor to 'children's music', but that it is a stage in life when aural stimulation is essential. To this end a host of events are programmed during the festival.

Transport

Getting to Barcelona is straightforward with plenty of road, rail, and airport links from anywhere in Europe. There are coaches which travel from London to Barcelona regularly. When travelling by train it is easiest top take the 'Trenhotel' directly from Paris directly to Barcelona, leaving Paris in the evening, and arriving at Barcelona the next morning.
