The Grec Festival of Barcelona

The Grec Festival of Barcelona is the city’s largest cultural event of the year, with theater, dance, music, circus and other stage arts. This is a long-standing festival that will take place for no less than the 39th time in 2015.

Moreover, the Grec festival has become not only the most outstanding summer cultural attraction in Barcelona, but also a key reference on the European festival calendar.


The festival’s name comes from its main venue, where the opening sessions always take place: the Theatre Grec, or Greek Theatre, on Montjuïc, an open-air theater built for the 1929 Universal Exhibition.

With a thirty-eight years history, the Grec Festival of Barcelona has become the leading producer of performances in Catalonia. The event has a double mission- to support the local production and produce outstanding works by Catalan artists and companies; and to provide a window onto the world by presenting the most interesting works from around the world in Barcelona.


The Festival will fill Barcelona’s nights with great shows and performances. From July 1 to 31, the Grec Festival of Barcelona brings theatre, dance, music and circus to the Catalan capital. Presenting a packed programme with something for everyone, the festival is a unique opportunity to enjoy the performances of world class artists. This is an event that enables you to experience the performing arts as never before! You will feel like much more than a spectator!

Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Grec Gardens which provide the venue for several free concerts before the main shows begin. Enjoy a perfect evening with dinner at the restaurant. There is an excellent restaurant which is complemented by seven catering outlets serving up a wide range of culinary specialties.

Here you can find the whole programme of the event!

Indeed, the festival is today the city’s leading showcase for performances of shows produced abroad! Do not miss it!
