20/9/13 La Mercè 2013
Fiestas de la Mercè comes back this 2013 in Barcelona from the 20th to the 24th September. This year, Ferran Adrià will be the speecher and Viena will be the guest city referring to its relationship with the 1714 Barcelona and because the Tricentenario of the Catalan defeated.
As a new thing, a new exposition venue will be presented – Las Naves Góticas de las Reales Atarazanas – and the Ciutadella will show the XVIII century city. One more year, the Mercè race took place in Barcelona streets last Sunday 15th. Now, we only have to wait for the giants, the castellets, the correfocs, the piromusical and the most popular dance in Cataluña, the sardana.
Also, in Montjuïc Castle, children will enjoy the circus and the clowns coming from Japan, Canada, Germany and United States. There will be programmed concerts from Mercè Música and Barcelona Acció Musical (BAM) like the presentation of two Catalan rumba groups: Los Manolos and Peret. The first one will play in Plaza Cataluña at 21h30 and Peret will play at 23h in the same place.
Stages from Mercè Música will be located in Plaza Cataluña, Plaza Sant Jaume and in the Catedral avenue while the stages from BAM will be in Plaza Real, Plaza dels Angels, Plaza Joan Coromines and the old Damm factory. Also, these concerts will share program with two more stages in Parque del Fòrum.
