Festival di Castrocaro

Castrocaro Festival, ‘new voices new faces’.

Entries are now open for the 65th Castrocaro Festival 2023.

WHEN: May 19 to Friday, September 22, 2023, the final.
WHERE: Castrocaro Terme and Terra del Sole.

The festival of emerging talents is an institution in the Italian music world and takes its name from the municipality of Castrocaro Terme e Terra del Sole (FC) in Emilia-Romagna, where the festival was born in 1957.

Its stage has seen many stars of the Italian music scene over the years, including Zucchero, Eros Ramazzotti, Laura Pausini and Mia Martini, to name but a few.

Top artists have alternated between Pippo Baudo, Mike Bongiorno, Claudio Chechetto, Paolo Bonolis, Amadeus and, in the last edition, Stefano De Martino and Belén Rodriguez.

The final of the 65th edition of the ”Castrocaro Festival” will be presented on Sept. 22, in the evening hosted byrapper Clementino.

The finalists are: Bosco, Chiara Bruno, Tobia Lanaro, i Frenèsya, Kaotika, Djomi; Sara Russo, Virginia Toniato, Nicole Vioto, i Senza Volto, Nicolae Giuliani, Nicola Ragnetti, e Tommaso Golaschi. These young talents were selected by maestro Vessicchio, Festival patron and executive producer Carlo Avarello and author and Salvatore Mineo from among the 58 who had passed previous auditions.

“Castrocaro is the City of Music and the Festival,” commented the Mayor of Castrocaro Terme and Terra del Sole Francesco Billi. “I thank Carlo Avarello and all those who are working to renew this prestigious route that has played a leading role in the Italian history of song. We intend to give Castrocaro back the importance it deserves as the City of Music. The Festival Voci e Volti Nuovi represents a heritage of the territory with a prestigious past, but if we want it to return to being a national reference point, we must try to project it into the future”..
