3rd International Gospel Festival Barcelona 2023

- From April 11th to 16th, 2023 -

A unique proposal to learn and interact with relevant figures of the international gospel

Concerts, workshops, experiences and much more!

After the success of the two previous editions of the Festival held in 2019 and 2022 (the Covid-19 pandemic stopped it all….), we are pleased to present this third edition which contains more proposals and novelties.

ONE HEART festival has a unique format and is entirely dedicated to the gospel. ONE HEART is more than a “festival”, it is a place to learn and perform with relevant figures of the international gospel. This new festival for the city of Barcelona was born to be a meeting place for professionals and public fans of the genre and music in general. The festival is directed by the pianist and composer Ramon Escalé, from Manresa, who has been dedicated to gospel music for more than fifteen years.

On this website, you will find all the information about this year’s activities, an edition in which we will have guest artists such as Ms. Anita Wilson (USA), Joakim Arenius (SWE), Daniel Thomas (UK), Fred Lewin (FR), Colin Vassell (UK), MessengersEsclat Gospel Singers, and the European Gospel Choir. In uncertain and convulsive times, gospel music, emotional, vibrant, and hypnotic, unites choirs to be ONE HEART for a few days and tell the world from Barcelona that by integrating music into our lives a better future is possible.
