Together with the Gràcia celebration, it’s Barcelona’s most popular summer fiesta
After the Gràcia fiesta, it’s time for Sants. The city’s schedule of fiesta reaches its apogee with the Festa Major in Sants, which is scheduled for 20 to 28 August. Among the attractions of the fiesta are concerts, parades, dances, open air dinners, family oriented activities and, of course, decorated streets and squares competing for the best dressed street award.
The 17 committees that are responsible for decorating the neighbourhood’s streets are also the organizers of the multiple activities that are set to keep residents and visitors amused for the eight days and eight nights of festivities.
Among the concert highlights this year are gigs by Pirat's Sound Sistema, Yacine, Terratombats, Strombers, Los Tiki Phantoms, Doctor Prats, Miquel del Roig, Fanfarrai, Las Ruinas and The Risas. There is also a parallel Alternative Festa Major in Parc de l'Espanya Industrial, featuring groups like Amigas de Yoli, Zahoor Manhdi, Edu Libra, Rosa Sanchez, Malamara, Zé Fuga and DJ Zum.
