For many enthusiasts of Barcelona culture, summer means the Grec Festival. This is a wide variety of artistic events (theater, dance, music, circus and children's activities), held during the month of July, at the iconic Teatre Grec, the outdoor amphitheater of Montjuïc, which hosts some of the most suggestive performances.

This year, 4 itineraries have been created to hold the maximum number of performances. These include theater, directed by Oriol Broggi and Mario Gas; songs from Carousel, the Broadway classic; dance by La Veronal and IT Dansa; the Rhum & Cia; circus, and the creations of Albert Pla, plus many more.

Similarly, music of the Grec Festival will be held at different venues of the city. Both the Harlem Jazz Club and the Jamboree will hosting concerts of the program. And for the 50th anniversary of the Jazz Festival, Pat Metheny will be performing at the Teatre Grec and there will be other performances at the Sala Barts.

Lastly, movies will also have their space. Firstly the Filmoteca, with a cycle dedicated to an independent Filipino film-maker; and secondly, the Sala Montjuïc, at the Montjuïc castle, a classic summer venue to see good movies.
