for the top-quality programme

The latest edition of the Cruïlla festival will be held from 12th – 14th July 2018. It started in 2005 in Mataró, in the suburbs of Barcelona, as a concert series. Following the success of the first series, the experiment was repeated over the following years, moving into Barcelona itself then extending over several days, finally taking its current form.

The programme has become increasingly impressive from year to year. If you’ve not heard of Cruïlla before, you very soon will!

Cruïlla: a melting pot of musical genres

The festival programme is eclectic, something which is reflected in the name: “cruïlla” means “crossroads” in Catalan. The festival offers a mix of pop, ska, hop-hop, reggae, folk, flamenco and rock music.

  • One fun element lies in the fact that visitors can suggest artists they’d like to see at the festival, adding an unusual participative twist!
