The Cruïlla, Barcelona's summer festival, returns to the Parc del Fòrum. It's cosmopolitan, fun, Mediterranean... Cruïlla is a reflection of the city, open and unique that brings you an eclectic line-up, with top-level artists. Cruïlla is, above all, the biggest party of the summer in Barcelona and a meeting place, a place where people meet. That is why Cruïlla is called that, because it means crossing.

Cruïlla is much more than music: it is art that is captured with a camera, with a pen or with movement. In this year's edition, the festival incorporates very varied and surprising artists and artistic disciplines into its program. Discover what 18 illustrators can do in a collaborative mural; what 8 design studios have done to reinterpret the image of Cruïlla; the illuminated show of the company of hip hop, dance and culture called Broda Bros; two photojournalism exhibitions; Barcelona's Newtonlab Space holographic laboratory, where you can take a photo with your favorite Cruïlla artist; and the interpretation that urban artists make of the protagonists of the 2022 edition of Cruïila.
