Festa della Musica
Brescia's city centre
23 June 2018
Every year in June, Brescia hosts Festa della Musica, the biggest music festival in Italy. This unique event stretches to every corner of the city and is a colourful festival of sounds open to musicians of all age, origin and musical genre.
Festa della Musica. Brescia is flooded with music and colour
Around 3,000 performing musicians, over 100 stages and notes resonating from the morning since past midnight; it’s a day of celebration of every type of music which spreads from the city centre to the surrounding districts.
From rock to jazz, from pop to soul, from funky to dance: there’s really something for every taste! Large spaces and more intimate locations, indoor venues and special concerts like that in Canton Mombello prison: Brescia opens its doors to this flood of music and welcomes music lovers and interested tourists arriving from all over Italy. Celebrities can’t be missing. They will be announced closer to the event and will perform in the biggest stages, including Piazza Loggia, Piazza Paolo VI and Piazza Vittoria squares.
Each edition of the festival also features a “tail” of events for night owls until 3 in the morning in some of the most charming areas of the city, including Brescia’s castle.
Free concerts and open participation to everyone
All concerts have free admission. You can find information and artists’ lineup on the official website of Festa della Musica. If you are a musician of any age and playing any genre, and you want to perform, send your application through the official website!
