Spain is celebrating music this summer with a myriad of musical festivals. The sweet sounds of music and the rhythms of dance will descend upon the country in July and August.

Madrid's Summer in the City Festival, running through Aug. 23, will host 1,166 performances, including concerts, plays, and dance performances. Many of the events are free. Visit the website for complete details.
