Fira Mediterrània a Manresa

The Fira Mediterrània in Manresa, 70 minutes by train from Barcelona, fills the city's streets and squares with music, dance, theatre, storytelling and the visual arts, from  traditional folk customs and world music to contemporary art forms like graffiti and 3D mapping. It's an explosion of creativity inspired by the popular culture of Catalonia and the Mediterranean. Last year's programme included over 100 events, with a mixture of free outdoor shows and ticketed indoor concerts and performances. The line-up was headed by Catalan singer-songwriter Roger Mas and flamenco guitarist Tomatito, while the World Music programme featured Asian Dub Foundation Sound System, Cheikh Lô, DakhaBrakha and Ester Rada. There were folk musicians from Catalonia and Valencia, traditional Catalan festivities from castells to sardanas, and theatre events for the whole family.
