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.
