Jam sessions

Calling all musicians,

If you’re into live music and enjoy playing with other musicians in a laid-back setting, then you’ll love this event!

Every Wednesday, a group of musicians gathers at Robin’s Pub, known for its great international vibe and as a hotspot for music in Alicante.

Here’s how it works: Each week, there’s a different director who leads the session and keeps things organised. The other musicians simply join in and play along, no prior preparation is needed – it’s all about spontaneous jamming.

If you’re up for some good music and a fun time, join in the fun at Robin’s Pub, 66 Calle Virgen del Socorro, 03002 Alicante.
