Barcelona

Barcelona’s Grec Festival is the city’s biggest entertainment event, with theatre, dance, music and circus.

This is a festival of long-standing tradition: this year 2020 celebrates its 44th edition. In fact, it is now not only the foremost cultural attraction of the Barcelona summer but an outstanding event on the European calendar of festivals as well.

It’s name comes from that of the main venue of the festival, where the opening sessions always take place: the Teatre Grec or Greek Theatre on Montjuïc hill, a splendid open-air auditorium built for the Universal Exposition of 1929.

With its 44 years of history, the Grec Festival of Barcelona is the leading entertainment producer in Catalonia. It has a twofold mission: to support local performing arts activities, hosting some of the best creations of Catalan art collectives and of individual artists, and to act as a window on the world, presenting the most interesting international productions. Indeed, the Grec is also Barcelona’s most important showcase of cultural proposals from abroad.
