On Thursday 26 August at 9 pm Sara Rados will take the stage with her trio. Florentine singer-songwriter of Neapolitan-Croatian blood, she is one of the most interesting voices on the Italian scene. In 2008 he won the RAI contest two "Scalo 76" with the song La Ricetta ", for which he also made a self-produced video clip (on youtube). At the end of 2008 he won the Ciampi Prize and the Rosa Balistreri Critics Prize (San Giovanni La Punta (CT)). In 2010 he is among the sixteen semifinalists of Musicultura in Recanati with the song "Marzo", winning the SISME prize. The often not simple events of life have lengthened the working time of his first studio album, Le cose cambiano , which was released in 2018 and was recorded with the collaboration of Paolo Baglioni (percussion and drums, Pelù, Morandi), Alessandro "Finaz" Finazzo (acoustic guitar, Bandabardò), Andrea "Orla" Orlandini (acoustic, electric and slide guitar, Bandabardò), Michele Papadia (keyboards, Noemi, Ana Popovic, Petrella Trio 70's).

Friday 27 August 9 pm concert by The Stoned - Acoustic Rock. Paolo Cancellieri (vocals) and Alessandro Donati (guitar), already together in the bands Dimples and The Shots, offer the old projects in an acoustic key: from soul, ballads and atmospheres of black music to the rock-blues classics of the seventies, with the aim of giving a couple of hours of serenity in the name of good music.

Saturday 28 August at 9 pm Bottai and Meille play Led Zeppelin. Iacopo Meille (main voice and second guitar) and Francesco Bottai (first guitar and second voice). Both in Norge, their love for Led Zeppelin's music has led them, now many years ago (more or less since Francesco Bottai joined Norge permanently), to form this duo to be able to play live - strictly in key acoustics - songs and songs that otherwise found no place in the band's usual electric set.

Thursday 2 September at 9 pm Rock'n'roll and rockabilly with the duo formed by Marco Di Maggio (guitar and voice), the only Italian artist elected in the American Official Rockabilly Hall of Fame, and by his trusty double bass player Matteo Giannetti : a pairing with an overwhelming, compact and essential sound, where Marco's guitar shoots notes at supersonic speed, supported by the incessant slap of the double bass player Matteo Giannetti, a rhythmic carpet that replaces percussion. The typical sound of Rockabilly, Country and Blues of the origins was played in duo or trio (see eloquent examples such as Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash) and it is extremely interesting and surprising how, with the skill of these two musicians, a genre born now for a good number of decades can be reinterpreted with such effectiveness and topicality: with only a guitar and a double bass, if they are those of Marco Di Maggio & Matteo Giannetti, the sound impact is that of a real band . Marco Di Maggio is a leading exponent of the international R'n'R scene and considered by the specialized press as one of the best guitarists in the world. He has performed in the USA, Canada, UK, China, Hong Kong, Russia, Denmark, Finland, Norway, France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Latvia, Sweden, Austria, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, participating in various editions of prestigious festivals
