Musicastrada Festival is an itinerant event focused on music, photography and territory promotion based in Tuscany (Italy), usually from the half of July to the Half of August. The Festival supports the transnational circulation of artistic works having a heterogeneous audience that usually cannot access directly to such events organized only in the biggest towns. In fact, most of the events are organized in small towns.
Concerts are free of charge with local and international artists coming all over the world. Their location is the main town square with different kinds of music for a global vision of the world including different cultures, traditions, and attitudes. From small intimate squares to bigger ones, the audience may vary from 100 to 800 hundred each night. At the Musicastrada Festival, one is able to connect to the old Tuscany mood finding oneself in the world-famous landscapes and ancient villages where time seems to stand still and finally eating at typical restaurants run by families.
Music is the way to overcome language barriers and support intercultural dialogue among different countries and different people. Musicastrada Festival has been defined as one of the Italian Boutique Festivals where locations are the main strength: don’t expect big stages, massive crowds and overwhelming lines, this is not our attitude. We like and offer an intimate atmosphere, small stages, even if some can be considered big, and small squares where all is organized for music, artists and audience enjoying a real sound in the endless beauty of our country.
