LOCUS FESTIVAL 2020 LIMITED EDITION IS COMING TO LOCOROTONDO! FROM GUIDO HARARI’S PHOTOGRAPHS TO CONCERTS, MEETINGS AND CINEMA. FIRST LIVE SHOWS CONFIRMED: CALIBRO 35, MICHAEL LEAGUE AND BILL LAURANCE (SNARKY PUPPY)

As promised and despite everything, also in 2020 Locorotondo will have the Locus Festival, though in a Limited Edition version.
Already from the first news, it is clear how this year’s limits will become merits, for a festival that has never given up on quality for quantity. All in the welcoming framework of the Itria Valley, the heart of Puglia.From the 7th to 23rd August 2020, the center of Locorotondo will be covered by “SONICA“, a special photographic exhibition GUIDO HARARI‘s works taking place all over between the historic center and Sant’Anna di Renna:  the author, among the most famous music photographers in the world, will be joining us at Locus for a public talk.
Other special meetings and open-air cinema (free entry) will animate Locorotondo’s village, and obviously live music will be there with the first two confirmations.

CALIBRO 35, for a special live project, is reconfirmed at Locus 2020. This Italian band of high international profile is perhaps the closest musical project to the soul and character of Locus Festival, and we are delighted to be able to get Calibro back on board this year.

Another great friend of Locus, the brilliant American bassist and composer MICHAEL LEAGUE, leader of the formidable SNARKY PUPPY, will be in Locorotondo in duo with pianist BILL LAURANCE, award-winning and original member of the band. A truly precious and engaging experience for all live music lovers.

We still need a few more days to confirm the final locations and dates for these concerts, which will be ticketed with a limited number of spaced seats, in compliance with the already known anti-Covid19 security protocols. Tickets will be on sale exclusively through the DICE.fm app, freely downloadable on all Android and iOS devices.

The same app will make live streaming coverage of some shows and happenings on DICE TV, and on the festival’s social media channels, freely accessible (or with voluntary donations). This way we can keep in touch with all Locus fans, old and new, who can’t be present on site.

For now we all keep in touch, waiting for the next announcements and details: there will be other beautiful and important surprises!
The work also continues for Locus Festival 2021, where we are relocating several artists canceled from this years’ emergency.

Locus 2020 resist in a “Limited Edition”, and postpones of one year the “Open-eyed music” edition.

Since the first news about the Corona Virus began to circulate, we have been holding our breath. We have witnessed the incredibly rapid expansion of the pandemic issue and the occurrence of the worst scenario for our world.
After dedicating our whole lives to bringing people together with music, this year we have to consider social distancing as the only way to protect the community.

In recent months, we have preferred not to give vague information to our audience, but we never stopped working, monitoring the evolution of the situation in regards to the summer.
Now we can say with certainty that, unfortunately, the extraordinary concerts already announced for 2020 will not be possible,  but we are working to reschedule them in summer 2021 together with the entire format already presented this year.

We’re honored to announce already today “Locus festival 2021 – Open-eyed music”, with the first two shows confirmed: Niccolò Fabi on the 31st of July 2021, and Willie Peyote on the 7th of August 2021. The tickets already purchased will remain valid for the new shows.

We’re trying to reschedule also other artists, and we hope to announce them as soon as possible.  But, we’re not giving up on Locus in 2020!

We are dealing with the new ways of safe use for events for this summer, codified and announced by national and regional authorities.
It is therefore still necessary some time our end, but a new program is being conceived for a “Locus festival 2020 – limited edition” in August in a more intimate dimension,
preserving the quality and the cultural identity of Locus.
And for those who cannot reach us, we will offer the possibility of maintaining an audiovisual contact with special live streaming videos.

In this extremely difficult situation for the entire music business, we resist holding on to our roots and the essentials that we’ve never abandoned: good music, sincere performances, and a territory rich in beauty and tradition. Because Locus is the heritage of an entire community, that can give us strength and motivation on moving forward despite the heavy limitations caused by the health emergency.

Let’s stay together and everything will be fine!
