The end of summer can be much more bearable if you choose to visit Barcelona in mid-September. This is the time when the city dresses up to celebrate its oldest festive event. Considered the true festival of Barcelona, La Mercè 2016 will be the best opportunity to enjoy music and culture in its broadest sense. Take note of what you already know about the 2016 edition and pay attention to the upcoming major developments.
The La Mercè festivities will take place between Thursday 22nd and Sunday 25th September. The Barcelona City Council has confirmed that the number of streets and urban spaces that will host acts will be considerably expanded. One such venue will be the popular Parque de la Trinidad. As usual, the Barcelona Acción Musical festival (BAM) will encompass most concerts between 18th and 24th. This section will have a large presence of music groups and French artists, while Paris has been designated as the guest city this year.
