Rock Concert In Canet del Mar Barcelona Gets Go-Ahead For 22,000 Music Fan Restart.

The *Canet Rock festival which was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic has been given the green light for a July 3 restart with some 22,000 attendees, which is only 3,000 less than the pre-pandemic figures of 25,000. Music fans will now be able to make what used to be their annual pilgrimage and descend on the small coastal town of Canet del Mar.

The public has been told to wear a mask at all times and must have passed a previous antigen test before they will be allowed access to the shows.

Tickets to the festival are almost exhausted because they cost the same as those sold for shows back in 2020. However, this time attendees must pay a fee of 7 euros to meet the extra costs that the organisation of the festival will personally incur such as modifications to the infrastructure and the need to perform 22,000 antigen tests in a single day.

Details of exactly how the antigen test operation will be carried are still in discussion. The idea is that the public – all those over 6 years old, even if they are vaccinated – can reserve a space and time at one of the points enabled by the festival to take the test on the day of the festival.

The program includes some of Spain’s top stars, they are: Stay Homas, Buhos, Zoo, Zuu, Oques Grasses, Doctro Prats, Miki Núñez, Ciudad Jara, Itaca Band, Roba Estesa, Lildami, Jazz Woman, Miquel del Roig and Cesc.

*Canet Rock is a historic festival held in the Spanish coastal town of Canet del Mar, close to Barcelona, each summer. With its roots in the counterculture of the 1970s, the festival has a strong tradition of freedom, tolerance and inclusivity which stand strong to this day.

The Euro Weekly News is running a campaign to help reunite Brits in Spain with their family and friends by capping the costs of PCR tests for travel. Please help us urge the government to cap costs at

He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!. Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast.
