Festival Grec 2012

From 30/06/2012 To 31/07/2012
Venue: Barcelona

The Festival Grec takes its name from its principal venue, where many events take place: the Teatre Grec, or Greek Theatre, on Montjuīc. This open-air theatre was built in a disused quarry on Montjuic for the 1929 Universal Exhibition. Venues used are all interesting cultural landmarks in the city.

This year the program for the Festival Grec includes music, theatre, dance and circus.

Running throughout the summer, the Festival Grec offers the chance to see some outstanding performances in some truly magical locations. This year the organisers have offered some younger and lesser know Catalan performers a chance to shine, as well as the usual roster of celebrated international talent such as Katie Melua and Jane Birkin.

Some of the musicians that have played at the Festival Grec over the years include some true greats including Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, Lou Reed, Manhattan Transfer, Joe Cocker, Celia Cruz, Maria Creuza, Caetano Veloso, UB40, Chuck Berry, Elvis Costello, B.B. King, Bob Dylan, Laurie Anderson, Santana, Youssou N’Dour, Lokua Kanza, Keith Jarrett, Concha Buika, Antony and the Johnsons and Ryuichi Sakamoto, to name but a few.

If you are visiting Barcelona in June and July, the Festival grec is not to be missed.
