The traditional appointment with the Lugano Blues To Bop Festival is always the event of the end of the summer to tease fans of blues, jazz and gospel, with original offerings, in a crossroad of genres between tradition and new tendences.
Every night, three stages in four different squares in Lugano (Piazza della Riforma, Piazza Cioccaro, Piazzetta San Rocco) will host around fifty musicians in more than forty concerts; the audience can simply choose, at any moment, among the different options all within easy reach. Satisfaction is guaranteed. From blues to pop, from gospel to soul, this event is not only unique in its kind in Europe, but in addition it's free. Moreover, the event by the lake Ceresio, together with the attendance of well-known artists, can boast a very cosy and yet exciting atmosphere in the city among the thousands of spectators and the artists. Enjoy the delightful Piazzetta San Carlo and the big celebration atmosphere in Piazza della Riforma, but don't forget neither the unique and emotional moments of gospel performances in the Lugano Cathedral on Sunday afternoon, nor the closing evening concert in Morcote.
