  • Dance party to save the world: If the fluttering of a butterfly in Beijing can trigger a storm in New York, imagine what can happen when a whole planet starts to dance Macarena, lambada, Saturday night fever or Los Pajaritos. We are waiting for revolutions, cataclysms, earthquakes. We are waiting for the chaos at every hip stroke, every shaking of the waist. And what can happen if we don’t dance? Could the world end? Maybe … But we will not allow it, because we will dance until the sun goes down, until what happens is what the people of Happy Generation expects to happen. Would you like to dance with us?
    Today from 20:00 to 21:00 at Centre Civic Urgell, c/Comte Urgell 145, metro Hospital Clínic (L5). Free entry with prior reservation Starting on Monday, November 12, Book your tickets in person at the counter of the civic center or online by clicking the following link.

Saturday, 17th November

  • Fiesta de San Xibeco: This fiesta Saint Xibeco was born 13 years ago. Why is it Xibeco and not another alcoholic beverage or other object? “Xibeca is cheaper alcohol,” which summarizes everything that represents this festival from a sociological point of view. A humble neighborhood, hardworking, but above all happy, wanted to have fun. With these thoughts, the celebration of a popular beer was born, which fills the streets with joy and makes everyday problems forgetful. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Check their facebookpage for the full program.
    C/Baltasar Gracián 24, metro Via Júlia (L4).
