Grec Festival Kicks Off Summer in Barcelona - Starting on the 30th June 2012
Barcelona will host the summer’s greatest party, an explosion of color, music, dance, circus and theatre performances invading the city throughout the month of July.
The 2012 Grec Festival of Barcelona kicks off on Saturday 30th June with a prodigious free opening party on Passeig de Lluis Companys where everyone is invited. Spanish bands such as Canteca de Macao and La Troba Kung-Fú will heat up the atmosphere with flamenco, reggae and passionate Spanish rhythms on a fantastic background mastered by the Belgian Theatre Tol.
Both local and international artists will participate at the event delighting the public with a variety of acts, from theatre presentations to dance shows, live concerts, digital illustrations and street art. Most of the festival’s performances will take place in the Theatre Grec and Fundacion Huan Miro, but there will be numerous venues all over the city hosting spectacles, such as Palau de la Música, Caixa Forum, Teatre Lliure and Plaça del Rei.
By attending the world-famous Grec Festival, spectators will also have the opportunity to learn about the authentic Catalan culture, to explore the streets of Barcelona and to enjoy the diversity of one of the greatest cities in Europe. So, whether you are a culture enthusiast, a jazz devotee, a family with kids or just a tourist in Barcelona, Grec Festival has something for everyone, offering each visitor an original experience.
However, after the hustle and bustle of any party, tourists may need a cozy place to retreat and Barcelona comes with a wide range of accommodations to suit every taste. But, when you find yourself in one of the liveliest cities in Europe, nothing compares with a tranquil sanctuary, so why not rent your own private villa or elegant apartment in Barcelona and make the best of your experience.
