Sala Montjuic & Festival Grec

Today, we’re sharing with you two events that are taking place throughout July. So, whether you’re coming to Barcelona this weekend, or in two weeks, there will definitely be something for you to do!

Sala Montjuic – 28th June – 2nd August

Are you looking for something a bit more chilled out to do on one of your evenings this July? Sala Montjuic is an open-air film festival that takes place right outside Montjuic Castle. On various days throughout the month, they will be screening some old classics as well as more recent favourites, such as Kill Bill, Some Like It Hot and Green Book. This is a lovely thing to do on a summer evening, so grab a blanket, make yourself a picnic, and head over to Montjuic Castle for some outdoor entertainment! There will also be live music performances before every screening, which are included in the ticket for the film.

Festival Grec – across July

The Grec Festival is an event showcasing theatre, dance, music and the circus in Barcelona. This year marks the 43rd edition of the festival. Promoted by the local council, its main objective is to support local productions, by displaying creations from the best of Catalan collectives and artists, as well as showcasing talents from other countries. The name comes from the name of the main venue, the Grec Theatre in Montjuic – an open-air theatre used for the majority of performances during the festival. In addition to this, MNAC and the Palau de la Música Catalana, among others, will also be holding some of the events. This year, Grec wants to portray the tension between passion and reason, with creations inspired by Shakespeare. While the event has already started, there’s still 3 weeks left of it, and there are daily workshops and activities in venues across the city, many with free entry, so there’s no excuse not to go and have a look!
