A multi-ethnic journey from Africa to Latin America, from Europe to the East, through the rhythms of both traditional and innovative sounds, on the Festate stage.
This is, in short, the formula for the fine musical which takes place in Chiasso. A rich mixture of sounds and cultures from all over the world, a true crossroads of rythms which each year resonate throughout the audience-filled square.
Along with well-known and established artists, debut and underground acts will be performed on the Festate stage: a date which has become unmissable for those who want to enjoy the pleasures of multiculturalism.
For 2019 the theme chosen is L'Afrique c'est chic!, an expression that intends to refer to the importance and class of African music: Festate 2019 aims to enhance the culture of this great continent, overturning a stereotype of these difficult times in which Africa is perceived primarily as a problem.
It is absolutely not a matter of camouflaging reality, the socio-political situation in Africa remains extremely serious for many nations and for many peoples; however, for these two days in Chiasso we want to put the emphasis on the positive and creative energy of peoples, cultures and people who resist despite the difficulties.
