La fiesta de Sant Juan
sant juan barcelona 150x150 Barcelona Pick of the week 21 27 June 2010In the night of 23 June Catalan towns and villages celebrate the Feast of Sant Joan (St. John' s or Midsummer's Eve) and welcome in the summer. It is the shortest night of the year, shrouded in magic, symbols and legends. Sant Joan is a night to discover and the night of the summer solstice, when the sun reaches its highest point, after which it begins to wane, with bonfires being lit to give it the strength it is losing. This feast will take place throughout the city.

La Nova cançó. La voz de un pueblo (Museu d´Història de Catalunya – Placa de Pau Vila 3)
This exhibition, which is held in the Born-area, is a journey through time, ranging from the base of the Catalan folk song in the 50s, starring recording which meant the first dance in Catalan in full Franco, from the emergence of artists who gave visibility to the aspirations of a generation. The exhibition does not focus only on those figures that marked a before and after in Catalan music, but also those who in these years have become contemporary song and music an essential part of their and our lives.
