La Mercè is back!

Europe’s biggest street party (or so we think!), La Mercè is back with hundreds of free activities and concerts across Barcelona from September 21st to 24th.

In case you were wondering, the fiesta celebrates Barcelona’s patron saint, who saved the city from a plague of locusts in 1687.

From castellers (human pyramids), correfoc (fire run) to light shows and fireworks, Barcelona will become a stage for all fun activities.

For many, La Mercè is also the opportunity to discover artists from Spain and other countries across the world, performing pop, rock, folk and electronic music on different stages across the city.

Mercury Rev, The Monochrome Set, Oddisee, La Bien Querida, Nathy Peluso,  Seun Kuti, El Gusto, Dr. Calypso and many others will be performing during these days.

As there is so much going on, make sure you check the programme before hitting the streets!
