A wide ranging programme, almost completely free of charge that really suits all tastes. For a month of great outdoor entertainment enjoy the street artists, concerts, perfomances and family events.
The beating heart of the Lugano summer is once again the LongLake Festival. Over 250 events and outstanding guests will enliven the city, its squares, streets and parks each and every day for almost a month.
The 6th International Festival proposes entertainment, theatre and dance shows, concerts as well as a lot of activities for kids. To better acquaint yourself with the ongoing events, the LongLake Festival has been split in six different Festivals: ROAM Festival Lugano, Classica Festival Lugano, Buskers Festival Lugano, Urban Art Festival Lugano, Family Festival Lugano, Words Festival Lugano and many other side events Plus.
LongLake ROAM Festival Lugano
The Festival, entirely dedicated to live music, offers a rich international programme ranging from rock to pop, folk, indie, reggae and punk music.
LongLake Classica Festival Lugano
The world class line-up goes beyond the traditional classical music boundaries with original cabaret and crossover proposals. As a complement to the Festival, the appreciated Sunday matinées in the outstanding scenery of the Ciani Park and the great performers of the Cello Love review.
LongLake Buskers Festival Lugano
The street artists’ Festival which is an apparent delirium of freaks, artists, egos and musicians assembling and disassembling in an artistic harmony of beauty and fullness.
LongLake Urban Art Festival Lugano
A variety of arts initiatives aimed at connecting the residents to the urban background.
LongLake Family Festival Lugano
With a wide choice of events for families and children, the Festival proposes fairy tales reading, movies, magic and illusion shows.
LongLake Words Festival Lugano
The Festival gives voice to writers, actors, artists and other speakers who will interact with the audience. Within the Festival, words take on different shades and expressions when used in music, theatre, movies and images.
It’s the sum of all other proposals adding value to the Lugano Summer. Amongst them: the dance entertainment of Ritmo Costante, the Ticino Musica and the Ceresio Estate Festivals, the screenings at the lakeside (Cinema al Lago) and the entertainment proposed by the Lugano bars and clubs. Even if it’s not a Festival, PLUS completes the LongLake schedule involving many other organizers and increasing the visibility of other season programmes offered by the city.
