La Mercè musical fireworks display

From your home

Intimate and close, but more extensive than ever, in locations throughout the city. That’s what this year’s La Mercè festivities is going to be like, as is the Piromusical, a musical fireworks display rounding off the celebrations: a huge festival of fire that this time will not require you to travel or involve any crowds, because you will be able to enjoy it from your own home by tuning TV3 and lifting your heads to the sky from a balcony or rooftop.
Jordi Bonet from Oído, and Jordi Turtós, who designs the programme for the Mercè Música events, have chosen for the Piromusical a soundtrack specially conceived as a tribute to the oldest and wisest people of Barcelona, its citizens aged 60, 70, 80 years and upwards, who are more vulnerable and who form the segment of the population most badly affected by the Covid-19 health crisis. You will be able to hear popular pieces as part of a fun and delicate selection of popular songs that will take you back to the 1940s, 50s and 60s. The Piromusical will be split into three parts full of traditional music that everyone will know but will particularly delight those who danced to it when they were young.

This soundtrack will provide the accompaniment to a set of fireworks provided by Pirotècnia Igual, which will be visible from various parts of Barcelona, ​​as they will not be released from Montjuïc as they usually are but from four different places in the districts of Sants-Montjuïc, Nou Barris, Les Corts and Sant Martí. The fireworks will be higher and more powerful than ever this year, making them visible from a large area of Barcelona. This is because this year’s Piromusical is not just adapting to the demands of living with Covid-19 but is also closer to the public and in keeping with the essence of the celebration.

A different Piromusical ... dedicated to our grandparents!
