Plaça Xirgu

Plaça de Margarida Xirgu | 03/07 - 26/07

The square of Margarida Xirgu becomes the center of the Grec, a kind of main square of the festival that hosts many activities. Every day, you can watch a show, make a discovery, learn or simply taste something while you talk or comment on the last show you have seen.

Yes, this is one of those spaces where any spectator of the Festival ends up passing by before or after, that's why this year it has become a hub, an English word that means you are at the core of something. If we were in a town, this would be the Plaza Mayor, that is, the place where everyone meets.

Here, the activity does not stop. In this space intervened by Josep Iglesias you will find food-trucks where you can taste delicious specialties, many of which are oriental, the terrace of the bar (La Soleà) where you usually sit every year, a stage with many unexpected proposals and spaces to learn or be part of a community scenic creation ... As the support to the local young creation, the many and very diverse fragments of Asia that we can find in the streets of Barcelona and the social and participative projects form the three axes of the Hub of the Grec. Welcome!

Most of the activities start at 19:00 h and entrance is free.
