Few feelings can be compared with the one of going to the concert of your favourite artist. Well, maybe you can give the concert yourself, but that would be something special for you, although for the rest…
Hundreds, even thousands, of people go to the same place to enjoy the best hits of that singer. All with similar tastes and with the same idea in mind; I’m going to have a good time.
We are not going to make distinctions by cataloguing the concerts by type. We are going to put in chronological order what we believe to be the most outstanding artists who have decided to visit the capital.
Concerts you can’t miss this December 2022
Let’s start from the premise that WiZink Center is the epicentre of music in the capital. There are other places, such as live music venues, but this has become a place of pilgrimage for anyone who wants to enjoy a night of concerts.
It should be noted that 90% of the concerts we will be discussing will take place there, as they are well-known artists who attract large audiences.

Their guest artists are Nancys Rubias plus Marta Sango, who will put on a real show. In addition, the DJs Two Headed Beast, formed by the artists Pam Hogg and Arakis, will put the icing on the cake so that you won’t stop dancing from 19:30.

Madrid has been missing her since 2015 when one of the most international artists from Malaga, Vanesa Martín, came to visit us. She returns to review the well-known songs and the new ones from the re-release of her album Siete veces sí, a work that was originally published in 2020.

Let the betting begin, where was this cantaor born? Cádiz? Málaga? Maybe Seville? Wrong, all wrong, very wrong. Barcelona saw the birth of this flamenco artist who began his career at the age of 15. It’s just that so much art can’t be endured.
It is a real pleasure to see him live. And he not only sings for traditional flamenco, he has also played with other genres making them sound mixed with his roots. There have been followers, the more orthodox, who have criticised him, but it is a real discovery to see how he plays with rhythms. Although there are different colours to suit different tastes.
He has one of the most coveted awards in the world of flamenco, Premio Lámpara Minera, and has collaborated with renowned artists such as Enrique Morente, Paco de Lucía, Raphael, Pasión Vega, and Alejandro Sanz.
