Blues to Bop in Lugano

Why not defeat the weather and head towards the center of Lugano for an entertaining music event starting tonight?

For three days, the city center will turn into a great open-air theatre offering more than 60 hours of free, live music on 4 different stages.

The preparation of a new edition of Blues to Bop were in full swing this morning. This big musical event – unique in its genre – should bring cheer to the melancholic thought of the coming autumn.

For the 24° time the squares of the city center (Piazza della Riforma, Piazza Cioccaro, Piazza Dante, Piazzetta San Rocco) will accommodate four 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.

The entertainment will vary from the intimacy of the Piazzetta San Carlo, to the atmosphere of the big events which reign in the Piazza della Riforma, and not forgetting that matchless and moving occasion when gospel music finds a unique moment on the Sunday afternoon.

Blues to Bop is the only festival of its kind in Europe, so don't miss it! Click here for the programme including an introduction of all the performing artists: Blues to Bop programme.

The festival started in Tesserete last week and will be in Lugano from August 30th to September 1st, 2012. The Grand Finale will take place in Morcote on September 2nd, 2012 in Piazza Grande at 20:30.
