'Mallorca Live Summer Edition, Calvia. | R.C.


After more than a year of Covid restrictions and zero live music there is absolutely no doubt that concerts scheduled for this summer will be appreciated more than they ever were before.

Mallorca’s music calendar is fully loaded, so whether you’re into jazz, pop, rock, classical music or hip-hop there’s plenty to choose from.
