La Merce is Barcelona's biggest annual festival and is celebrated each year around the 24th of September in honor of its patron saint in squares and streets across the city.

Dates for this year are from Friday 21st to Monday 24th September 2018.

A program full of different activities is planned for all the public, with music, dance, circus and street arts. And not forgetting the giants, dragons, fire beasts, human towers and sardana groups.

La Mercè is also a festival of street arts with the MAC festival, Mercè Street Arts. This is a festival which has become a showcase of new creations, and the meeting place for many artists, both from the city and overseas. For the second year running,Passeig de Lluís Companys is the festival venue in the heart of the city, together with the Parc de la Ciutadella (by day, shows for all the family; by night, more audiovisual events, where art and technology merge with light displays, music and projects). Other venues include the Parc de la Trinitat and the Montjuïc Castle (where circus will be performed with shows combining music, dance and acrobatics).

Lisbon is the guest city and is joining in the festivities, accompanied by performers (The Night of Fados) wishing to fill the city with performances and music, and a wide variety of rhythms and styles.

Similarly to other years, Avinguda de la Catedral, the Moll de la Fusta, Bogatell beach, Avinguda de Maria Cristina and the Plaça Major de Nou Barris are the venues where the Mercè Festival will be filled with today's popular rhythms and mega concerts. The musical scene of Lisbon and from many other places in the world, will perform at BAM, with today's most innovative and emerging sounds playing at Plaça dels Àngels, Plaça de Joan Coromines and Rambla del Raval. This year we will receive the visit of groups such as Love of Lesbian, Els Catarres, Dr. Calypso, Mercury Rev, Maika Makovsky or Green Valley, without forgetting the classical music that will offer us the OBC and Vozes.

Like every year, fire will be one of the main elements of the festival, such as the Correfocs (fire runs) with a rain of fire among devils, dragons and other beasts of fire, making the streets of the center of Barcelona full of sparks. La Mercè will end, as always, with the traditional fireworks and music display. an explosion of light and sound, which has become one of the most expected and acclaimed events for the people of Barcelona and its visitors.
