The Grec Festival Comes to Barcelona: Theater, Music, Dance!

Many musicians take the stage this summer at Festival Grec

Barcelona offers up quite a spread of music, theater and entertainment from May to September. The city is always bustling with artistic happenings, but the summertime is especially good. This summer some of the best dates and festivals to look forward to are: San Juan (23 June), Festival Grec (June to August) and the Feste Major de Gracia (August).

More on San Juan and the Festes de Gracia in another post, today I want to talk about Grec. This is an amazing city-wide festival that celebrates the performing arts for a month and a half. The Grec brings international and local artists to the stages of Barcelona, and depending on the show, tickets to events range from free to expensive. If an artist is particularly famous, it is not uncommon for the Grec show to sell out (this has happened to me a couple of times so buy in advance!).

As I mentioned before, the festival is held in many venues. However, try to see a show at the Teatre Grec, which is outdoors and gorgeous on a warm summer evening. For a full listing of Festival Grec shows see the schedule here. The festival begins the 13th of June and goes until the 1 of August, 2010.
