Barcelona 2024 America's Cup Ceremony

On October 10. Bogatell beach.

The ceremony for the Match Race Final from the 37th Louis Vuitton America’s Cup will be one of the most significant moments of the Cultural Regatta. Barcelona will once again take the spotlight and act as a source of inspiration with an event headed by the Fundació Barcelona Capital Nàutica and that will capture the world’s attention.

The Bogatell Beach provides the scene for a high-impact and original show. Visual poetry and technology will be used to generate emotion and remind of everything that unites us as humans and the goals we work for together. 

Classical music at the beach with today’s finest conductors

On 11 and 12 July, Sant Sebastià beach. 

The Orquestra del Gran Teatre del Liceu, the choirs of the Palau de la Música Catalana and the OBC Orchestra will be offering two free concerts at the Sant Sebastià beach with today’s finest conductors: Gustavo Dudamel and Ludovic Morlot

And with the intention of taking music to vulnerable groups who can’t get to the beach, the children’s choir sections of the Orfeó Català will perform at homes for the elderly in the Barceloneta neighbourhood. And the chamber choir from the Palau will perform at the Hospital del Mar. 

All the concerts are an initiative of Barcelona Obertura.
