Mocedades (Spanish pronunciation: [moθeˈðaðes]) is a Spanish singing group. Mocedades was formed in 1967 by four young students from Bilbao. Inspired by folk music and songs by the Beatles, they started a band called Voces y Guitarras, later named Mocedades. They were from the Basque Autonomous Community. They represented Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1973. Their best known song was "Eres Tú".

In 2014, Mocedades became the name of two bands: one with Izaskun Uranga as its leader and the other with Javier Garay. A third group, El Consorcio, is made of former Mocedades members who left the group but have continued a career together outside the Mocedades brand.[1]
