Grec Festival de Barcelona 2017

Theatre, Music, Dance, Circus and Events for Kids

The Grec Festival de Barcelona, or more simply El Grec, is Barcelona's Summer Festival of Theatre, Music, Dance and Circus and although relatively highbrow offers a programme for all types of public.

The main promotor of El Grec is the Ajuntament de Barcelona and the festival's central venue is the Teatre Grec, the wonderful Greek amphitheatre on Montjuïc.

However, given the enormity of the festival, the whole Barcelona performing arts community gets involved and, as you can see from the programme below, many other theatres and venues stage different shows and performances.

The festival programme comprises theatre, musi, dance and theatre performances as well as the Mini Grec with a programme oriented towards children and the Més or More Grec programme for things that are difficult to categorise, such as talks or multi-media installations and a Mini Grec with a programme oriented towards children.

Admission to the More Grec activities is often free of charge, by the way.

The link below is a generic link for Grec Festival tickets but I suggest you scroll down through the programme and click through to the venue pages, where you will find directions and more specific information for the events that interest you.
