The Corts district Annual Festival, 2013

This year’s annual festival in the Corts district will take place from the 5th to the 13th of October and boasts a varied programme of events and Lluís Llongueras as the illustrious festival inaugurator

Once again the streets of the Corts district of Barcelona will throng with music, dance and entertainment, as is only fitting for the celebration of the district’s Annual Festival. With the customary objective of planning a festival programme that caters to all ages and tastes, the Annual Festival Committee, in conjunction with the residents, has prepared a versatile programme that includes a wide range of activities and covers the three areas that make up the district: Les Corts, la Maternitat i Sant Ramon and Pedralbes. 

The programme for this year’s festival, which takes place from the 5th to the 13th of October, includes activities of all types: street music, concerts by various groups and covering various genres (rock, folk, traditional, habaneras...), dance performances, competitions, games for all age groups, magic, open air banquets, sports and cultural activities, etc. This year’s inauguration is at the hands of renowned hair stylist Lluís Llongueras and will take place on Sunday the 6th at the stroke of noon.
 
One of the habitual and best known attractions of the Annual Festival is the Circus Festival on Street Circots; the perfect opportunity to bear first-hand witness to the latest innovations in contemporary street circus and theatre.
 
Another highlight is what is locally known as Festival Street which, on Sunday the 6th, will encompass a wide area dedicated entirely to festival activities from Numància to Gran Via de Carles III and from the avinguda Diagonal to the Travessera de les Corts. Among many other entertainment activities there will be a children’s car track, a giant chess board, hand crafts, art exhibitions and a number of stands for sampling wines and local produce.
 
The principal novelty of this year’s festival is that it is more interactive than ever. The complete programme may be consulted on the web site and includes the possibility of performing personalised searches according to the day in question or the type of activity required. The hashtag #fmlescorts has been created so that users may post comments or share festival experiences via social networks such as Twitter and Instagram.
