Between 22 and 25 September Barcelona celebrated its annual city festival. In 2016, the feast of Saint Mercè fell on a Saturday which meant the festival would be short and condensed and that most activities would be held over the weekend.
A noteworthy feature of this year’s festival was the diversification of venues, with the inclusion of new stages in neighbourhoods that hadn’t previously hosted activities.
In the case of the Mercè Arts de Carrer Festival (street arts festival), activities spread to Trinitat Park, Fabra i Coats, Fàbrica DAMM and the CCCB.
If you require more information on visitors and crowd counting systems during the festival, please see the Attendance Report for La Mercè 2016.
