A GREAT PREVIEW OF THE LOCUS FESTIVAL 2022 IN THE PORT OF BARI: THE BRITISH BAND ALT-J IN CONCERT ON SATURDAY 18 JUNE, PRESENTS THE NEW ALBUM “THE DREAM”. EXCLUSIVE DATE IN SOUTH ITALY.

By Locus 2022 eng, Senza categoria @en

The eighteenth edition of the Locus festival will have a great anticipation in the Port of Bari on Saturday 18 June 2022, with the exclusive concert of alt-J, one of the most important English bands of the last decade.
Tickets available from 10am on November 18th in preview through My Live Nation, and then on general sale from 10am on November 23rd on Dice.fm, Ticketone.it and Ticketmaster.it.

With three albums behind them, a Mercury Prize in 2012 and multiple GRAMMY and BRIT Awards nominations, the famous indie-rock band created in Leeds by Joe Newman (vocals, guitar), Gus Unger-Hamilton (vocals, keyboards, bass) and Thom Sonny Green (drums, percussion) is about to release his fourth album “The Dream” in February 2022.

Anticipated by the singles “U&ME” and “Get Better”, the album recorded during the lockdown promises to be the most mature, representative and experimental alt-J record ever.

In recent years, the three English guys have become the most important indie experience in the world, with gigantic tours as headliners in all the major festivals and continuous sold-out. The long and forced break from live has allowed them to return to focus on production, and now they are ready to return to the stages stronger than before.

With this prestigious first announcement, the Locus festival 2022 reconfirms the increasingly “widespread” character of the festival, with the central part of the program in August in Locorotondo, and a series of large unique events in splendid locations in various Apulian municipalities.

The area chosen for the alt_J concert, exclusively for all of southern Italy, is in the Port of Bari, an evocative place of culture, tourism and hospitality. Thus, the collaboration with the administration of the Apulian capital continues, which has already been successfully tested in the past two editions.

“Rising sun” is the claim designed for the Locus festival 2022, with the traditional circular sign redesigned with the rays of a star. Tthe sun of the new Locus is already rising!

The theme of the Locus festival 2022, 18th edition, The Rising Sun

By Locus 2022 eng, Senza categoria @en

Expanding energy, like a star, like the sun rising over Puglia in the summer. The circular sign of the Locus turns 18, and from its historic center of Locorotondo it connects other cities and districts.
The house of the rising sun is the title of an ancient traditional folk song, taken up in the most diverse musical contexts, from The Animals to Nina Simone, from Bob Dylan to Miriam Makeba and many others. One of the first to document it was the ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax, a true inspirational figure for the musical attitudes of the Locus festival.
We have reached maturity, but the core of our star remains passion and cultural warmth.

Image, theme and concept of the Locus Festival 2022 are developed by Imood Studio in collaboration with Bass Culture srl

Throughout the month of August thousands of people also enjoyed the photographic exhibition “Muse” by Guido Harari in the historic center of Locorotondo. It is the photography of a growing festival, despite the major limitations imposed on the industry by the emergency that has been lasting for two years now.

“Compared to the past, the exponential growth of the paying audience allows us to grow in quantity and quality of the shows, as well as representing a great signal of trust and maturity of the audience, which is extremely encouraging for the future. We are already working for the eighteenth edition, which will always have the municipality of Locorotondo as its heart between the end of July and the first half of August, and which we plan to expand and spread to other places and cities of our beautiful Puglia “, quoting Gianni Buttiglione, artistic director of the festival.

Canceled the Sons of Kemet show at Locus, along with all the Italian dates of the band

By Locus 2021 eng, Senza categoria @en

Unfortunately on August 12 we have to give up the Sons of Kemet show!
The English band canceled the entire Italian tour, due to travel difficulties following the increase in infections in Europe. The other two shows scheduled for August 12, James Senese Napoli Centrale and Laura Agnusdei, have been confirmed.
Follow us for more info on the date.

Here is the official statement of the band:

It is with a heavy heart that we will unfortunately have to reluctantly pull out of all the Italy shows. Italy has not been added to the green list today, the band is not fully vaccinated and can’t afford to quarantine either end. We are all truly devastated about this as the band was excited to play these shows.
