10 editions of Festival Jardins Pedralbes
The Festival Jardins Pedralbes is a Concert Studio Project that was born from our passion for music and the city of Barcelona. We dreamed of an opened place, outdoors, surrounded by nature and with historical significance, and the idea materialized in the Gardens of the Pedralbes Palace. Ten editions of a unique festival, that, thanks to all of you, has grown to become a reference in Europe.
Jimi Hendrix stated that music does not lie. For him and for all those who believe that music can change anything and transform lives, we created this festival.

The Festival Jardins Pedralbes has always stood out for its commitment to the Responsabilitat Social Corporativa (RSC). In every edition, the festival collaborates with various associations and social entities that work in favor of social inclusion. In the last edition, the Fundació Privada Centre d’Higiene Mental de Les Corts, the Comissió Espanyola d’Ajuda al Refugiat (CEAR) and Diomcoop, a cooperative that helps migrants in vulnerable situations, participated.
The members of these associations carried out various tasks at the festival, such as attention to the public, coordinated or support tasks in gardening. In addition, for the second consecutive year, the festival organized a charity dinner whose profits went to the Fundació Paideia, which helps people with disabilities to meet their needs and guarantee their social integration. The festival also collaborated with the Banc d’Aliments, asking the attendees to bring food to collect and joint the “La fam no fa vacances” initiative, demonstrating once again its commitment to the society and its work in favor of social inclusion.
From this summer, The Jardins Pedralbes Festival is moving to Poble Espanyol in Barcelona with Alma, the new Concert Studio’s festival. This new festival, that will take place in the emblematic Poble Espanyol from July 11 to July 27 this year, will have an interesting artistic proposal that will include prestigious national and international artists, following the line of the musical event that has been held until now in the gardens of Palau de Pedralbes.
