Come back Ferrara Under the Stars for its twenty-seventh edition, confirming itself as one of the longest-running festivals in Italy but always fresh and in continuous movement, capable of renewing and evolving every year by offering a varied, polymorphous and never banal musical proposal. A quality review that intercepts the best music in circulation to bring it to an ever wider and more varied audience. Ferrara Sotto le Stelle is possible thanks to the Municipality of Ferrara, the Emilia-Romagna Region, Arci Ferrara and Ales&Co. From 7 to 9 September the evocative courtyard of the Estense Castle of Ferrara, in the heart of the city, will host the concerts of Fatoumata Diawara (September 7th), Trentemøller (September 8th), And Arab Strap (September 9th). Three artists who, framed in a prestigious and exclusive location, highlight that international vocation which has always characterized the soul of the festival and which this year finds great vigor, without ever forgetting to look at local talents and sounds: the live performances of Trentemøller and Arab Strap will in fact be opened respectively by the duo Bono/Puppets And Daniela Pes.

The festival therefore returns to inhabit the place where it was born and renews its commitment to blend different sounds, genres and generations in a line up that brings together some of the most interesting artists on the international and national scene, mixing various sound nuances, from songwriting to electronics, from rock to world music. A winning mix of past and present capable of looking to the future in all its nuances, including green ones – thanks to the ISO20121 certification that the Festival has been pursuing for years. Ferrara Sotto le Stelle also aims to be increasingly widespread over time and space and to tighten and strengthen ties with the territory it inhabits.

The precious June previews were born from this point of view, with the return of Vasco Brondi in his Ferrara in a double live sold out (12 And June 13th) in which it turns back on The Lights of the Power Plant on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the release of the first album Songs from the scarred beachand that on June 12 it will have Anna Carol opening; and the concert by the refined American singer-songwriter Kevin Morby (June 14th), anticipated by the live of Macie Stewart. With the free concert of Giovanni Truppi in Argenta (FE) the June 20th on the occasion of International Refugee Day promoted by CIDAS, FSLS then expands its borders, also involving other nearby places and confirming its sensitivity towards social and environmental issues. Finally, the collaboration with Internazionale in Ferrara is renewed for the preview concert of the new edition of the journalism festival: il September 28th the Teatro Comunale of the city will host the live performance of the last great heretics of British rock, i Kula Shaker.
