I am from Madrid, love the city and want to share my special addresses. Every day a new idea, place or thing to do in Madrid. Everything has been thoroughly tested but it is only a personal opinion.

Summer plans in Madrid - Circo Price

Summer at La Villa de Madrid, music and other cool activities

One of the good things that Madrid offers in summer is a wide range of cultural activities. One I like much is the chance to enjoy international rare bands included in the "Veranos de la Villa" program. The program goes from 27th june to 2 of September, so there is plenty of time to book for tickets and get information from their website Veranos de la Villa. 
Congratulations for the graphic design of their poster!!!

Summer at Circo Price, music and other cool activities

This year, I haven’t missed Circo Price, a very unique place close to Reina Sofia and Lavapies. Apart from Price, other sites for concerts included in Veranos de la Villa are: Sabatini gardens close to Royal Palace, Conde Duque and Matadero (old slaughter house!)
An excellent concert with musicians and singers both from Mali and Brazil with exotic and unusual instruments like kora from Mali, exotic combination with a very interesting mixture of modern and tradition.. Arnaldo Antunes, Toumani Diabate and Edgar Scandurra made us dance and happily face the end of the weekend..
You can listen to good vibe songs from the concert in this link.
The picture will remind you of famous Mali photographer Malick Sidibe.

More concerts are coming to Circo Price; Flamenco, French, African, Portuguese, gypsy music and even burlesque.. so if you want to taste a bit of fresh air from other cultures, go for it!!
And check the rest of the program for outdoor experiences at Sabatini or Conde Duque. Madrid in summer is Baden-baden!! (that's an old say from the Marquis of Valdavia)
