Torroella de Montgrí Music Festival began in 1981 with a few concerts that were held in Sant Genís gothic church and the old Augustinian convent, from the late 17th century. Until 2019, 39 editions have been held and a total of 928 concerts attended by more than 435,729 spectators.
The Torroella de Montgrí Festival has received the Effe Label 2017-2018 and Label 2019-2020 quality seal granted by the European Festival Association which recognizes the best festivals in Europe.
The jury’s reasons for distinguishing the festival have been “its efforts to reach a wide audience, to establish relationships between young artists and established professionals and for the strength of its facilities, which are potential for a Festival that, despite of its long history, it has not ceased to have its meaning in society. ”
