La Merce Festival
La Mercè 2014 is a compendium of the leading Catalan traditions and a display of the more
innovative and creative nature of Barcelona. During the festival, you'll see sardanes,
human castles, dragons, giants and also the latest creations of the best artists of our times,
who are taking part in the Mercè Street Arts festival or offering concerts for the whole city.
Once again, the soundtrack of the Mercè will include all kinds of rhythms: pop, rock, music
with traditional roots, concerts by the OBC and the Banda Municipal. It will also feature
sounds of the new era, the speciality of a festival closely linked to our festivities, the BAM,
which will include Swedish rhythms this year in its programme.
This year, to end, an unforgettable music and fireworks display will bring the curtain down
not just on the Mercè but also on the events to commemorate the Tercentenary of
the Events of 1714, which have helped us learn more of our history and begin
to map out the future of our city and our country.
