It still seems too early to talk about end of summer festivals, but the preparation of a new edition of Blues to Bop are in full swing, a big musical event – unique in its genre – that will bring cheer to the melancholic thought of the coming autumn.
The squares of the city center (Piazza della Riforma, Piazza Cioccaro, Piazza Dante, Piazzetta San Rocco) will accommodate stages, on which about fifty musicians will perform in rotation in over forty concerts, with the possibility, at every moment, of choosing between different musical performances so as to satisfy the most varied musical preferences: this all offered – as usually – free of charge to the public.
And what a public! The winning card of the Blues to Bop is the ambience which will be created in Lugano, an opinion shared, year after year, also by the participating musicians.
Also this year the specialist and the layman will find exciting things to participate in; Blues to Bop is the only festival of its kind in Europe.
