A spectacular ambience and fantastic performances across the three days event!

Cruïlla Festival in Barcelona closed last Sunday July 10. This was the 8th edition of this annual summer festival. It was a crazy weekend. The ambience was spectacular and the crowd savoured the festivals wonderful programme of events.

Fans who attended the Cruïlla Festival enjoyed some fantastic performances across the three days event. The constant flow of rhythm and sound left spectators mesmerised and wanting just “one more tune”.

Fridays line up saw crowds live it up with the likes of Rudimental, Damien Rice and Crystal Fighters. The weather and music didn’t disappoint as thousands spent the day dancing away in the Catalan capital to some instantly recognisable anthems.

Saturday saw the attention shift to the likes of James, Alabama Shakers and Robert Plant. The Alabama Shakers were outstanding and helped to add to the carnival atmosphere from the previous day.

Sunday afternoon saw the event come to a climax as Elefantes and Calexico brought the festival to a close. Cruïlla festival also showcased some amazing street food and spectators benefitted from free WiFi and the brand new Cruïlla Market. The Cruïlla market was a raging success and allowed local designers and businesses the chance to showcase their products to the local and international community.


After three days of dancing away under the sun using the cashless smart wristbands utilised by the event this year, fans and organisers alike will have been thrilled by the continued success of Cruïlla Festival. One couple even got engaged at the festival after meeting at the very same event four years earlier. If you still need to recover any money that’s still left on your wristband the event organisers are happy to help.

Year in year out the Cruïlla Festival does not disappoint and 2016 was no different. Roll on 2017 and another action packed weekend of culture and music in one of the best cities in the world, beautiful Barcelona.
