Grec Festival 2024

This year marks the 48th edition of the Grec Festival 2024, one of Europe’s leading festivals of music, dance, theatre, cinema and circus. Taking place from 26th June until 4th August, events will be hosted in fifty of the city’s most exciting venues and will include a range of both international productions and the very best of Barcelona’s local talent. Over the course of its history, this long-standing event has become a key summer attraction in Barcelona and here’s why…

Programme Grec Festival 2024

The festival highlights artists who have previously featured in the festival and have gone on to achieve international recognition, and also pays homage to renowned performers from around the world. This year however, the festival turns its focus inward, with a special emphasis on artists who represent a generation of Barcelona talent, accompanied by masters of their craft who have influenced up and comers and have a personal commitment to generations to come. You may also notice a strong female presence in the line-up, a highlight for those wanting to support women in the arts.


Diversity and inclusivity are at the forefront of this festival. You can expect to see a range of artistic works, from contemporary performances to classical theatre, often featuring experimental and innovative productions.

The mix of genres, different people and different cultures all help to make this festival a very special one. The variety really is endless and spectators will be spoilt for choice.

Theme: Friendship

The theme of this year’s Festival is friendship – artists inviting other artists, people attending shows with their friends and it’s also the perfect setting for blossoming romances. The Grec Festival has become a truly integral part of the city’s culture, bringing together artists and audiences to celebrate creativity, diversity and the performing arts.


Trust us, this is one festival you definitely want to add to your calendar this summer!

Grec teatre

The festival will mainly take place at the infamous open-air ‘Teatre Grec‘ in Parc de Montjuïc, a venue with a distinct Greek-inspired design, which only adds to the unique ambiance of the festival. Major classical works have been performed here, although due to the Spanish Civil War it almost fell into disuse. In 1976, with the opening of the Grec Festival, it was given a new lease of life and since then, it sleeps in winter and awakens each summer to become the central venue of the city’s biggest performing arts festival.
