From 17 to 21 June, the eighth edition of the Malcantone festival
From 17 to 21 June 2020 Caslano, its beautiful town centre and its splendid lakeside promenade will be the setting for the eighth edition of the Blues festival which traditionally inaugurates and launches the long and intense musical summer in the Canton of Ticino. Since 2013 the village of Basso Malcantone welcomes what, year after year, has become an increasingly comprehensive and engaging event, and not just for lovers of this music.
Thanks to its constantly evolving formula, Caslano Blues can indeed be considered as a "party for everyone": four evenings and noon on Sunday that combine excellent music with the pleasure of experiencing and appreciating it in a unique and fascinating setting such that offered from the village overlooking Lake Ceresio. And it is exactly with this spirit and with this objective that Pro Caslano, the Municipality and Lugano Region have been proposing their Blues festival for the last eight years.
The 2020 edition follows the tried and tested formula, and therefore takes place over a period of five days, from Wednesday 17 to Sunday 21 June. It starts with two "acoustic" evenings, with concerts played simultaneously in five different courtyards in the centre of the village starting at 20.30. Two evenings that also enjoy the "live" presence of Rete1 (radio media partner of the festival) and which close with a "jam session" on a stage specially set up in the debarcadero area.
Then on Friday and Saturday evening Caslano Blues moves to the two stages and to the "village" in Piazza Lago, where the concerts begin at 19.30 and end around 02.00, with the usual food and wine accompaniments on the banks of the Ceresio. Finally, also in the same venue, this eighth edition draws to a close on Sunday starting at 11.00 with an aperitif-lunch in blues.
In total there are around twenty concerts with which musicians and bands from all over the world make up the "setlist" (currently in preparation) of Caslano Blues 2020.
