Music is synonymous with passion in Valencia. From a young age, many Valencians learn to play an instrument and join local music societies, which can be seen marching proudly through the streets of the city at times of celebration, filling the air with melodies. Valencia ́s innate creativity, which can be seen in renowned international festivals like Las Fallas, can also be found in the music of countless artists and groups who have become famous over the years, as well as in the emerging talent that continues to fill the city ́s music halls and independent venues. Valencia ́s musical calendar runs throughout the whole year thanks to an active local scene. Festivals, concerts and venues turn the city into a huge stage where music flourishes on a daily basis.
Valencia’s Mediterranean atmosphere also attracts the best national and international talent. The
prestigious Berklee College of Music has set up its European campus here. And the best contemporary artists fill a calendar of concerts and festivals that covers all musical styles, from opera, classical and jazz to rock, pop, folk, hip hop and electronic. Countless musical beats can be heard non-stop in Valencia.
