Theme Barcelona

A unique 3D show, a seven-storey human tower, a dance performance on high, and a junk-box fairground. Artists, performances and phenomena from Barcelona’s fantastic cultural scene will be springing and spilling out over every part of this year’s festival. Several productions are direct collaborations between artists from the two cities, and will also be staged in Barcelona when Stockholm makes an appearance in September. The Culture Festival celebrates the special link between two of Europe’s best cities for culture.
