MusicBrainz Summit / 2016 developer meeting

This page has not been reviewed by our documentation team (more info).


Instead of a MusicBrainz Summit for 2016, there may be a developer meeting/hacking session in Barcelona, Spain around Thursday the 22nd to late afternoon on Saturday the 24th of September. On Sunday we might participate in the correfoc of this year's La Mercè Festival.


The meeting will be organized by Freso.


The meeting will take place at the MetaBrainz office (OSM, GMaps), close to Arc de Triomf (metro L1; Rodalies R1, R3, R4).


Very important: Barcelona is a very safe city, save for pick-pockets. Once you leave your plane/train, make sure your wallet/passport/laptop is secured! Ideally important things will be under two zippers or better. Never walk with a wallet in your back pocket, unless it is secured!

Arriving by train

If you arrive at Barcelona Sants, you can take a Rodalies train to Arc de Triomf. Lines R1, R3, and R4 all serve this route, and there is less than 10 minutes between trains. This is easiest and fastest.

Arriving by plane

If you arrive into the BCN airport, follow the signs to the buses and look for the light blue Aerobus. 5.90€ one way or 10.20€ round-trip this is the fastest and easiest way to get to Plaça Catalunya. The bus has free (slow) WiFi and a place to charge your phone! To make things easier, purchase and print your tickets ahead of time.


We hired a flat close to the office. You can get the address from Freso.
