The TODAYS project
“TODAYS has given shape to that pure passion that animates the urban peripheries: geographical but not cultural periphery, in which it was decided to bring border music to the center. Also thanks to the festival, Turin rediscovers its natural vocation as a hotbed of the avant-garde: the languages of music and its various artistic contaminations, the search for ideas and references with which to reshape an ever-changing artistic and musical panorama “, thus is presented the project on the official website of the festival.
“The mission of the festival is to offer space to artists who otherwise would not have the right of citizenship in Turin, highlighting the scrupulous choice of sounds and images underlined by the physical spaces, venues of events, through the regenerated architectures of an industrial archeology that is proud testimony of the history of the urban periphery “.
Turin, avant-garde city
Once again Turin is reconfirmed as one of the most avant-garde and interesting cities of the musical (and cultural in general) panorama of our country.
For the 2022 edition, respect for diversity, overcoming borders, creating new horizons will be the guidelines of the festival which, through music and art, intends to return to the public, for three days, an experience of harmony and equilibrium.
The festival offers space for the sounds to come, anticipating ideas and trends.
