The first musical evenings will open in the historical centre of Caslano
and then continue on the main stage of Piazza Lago. The village will magically turn into the house of blues to dance into the small hours of the night.
The fifth edition of the international CASLANO BLUES festival, proposed by Lugano Turismo and Pro Caslano, is scheduled from June 14th to 18th (Corpus Christi long weekend). Even in 2017 the blues festival of the Malcantone region spans a five day period.
On Wednesday and Thursday (8:30 p.m. - 11:00 p.m.) concerts are going to be staged in the town centre’s five different squares. On Friday and Saturday evening (7:30 p.m. - 02:00 a.m.), CASLANO BLUES will instead take place in Piazza Lago: the evening’s opening and closing is foreseen on a stage set up in the “village” near the kiosk and grill area, while the two main concerts will be played on the big main stage, set up next to “village” itself. The Festival is then going to close on Sunday with an “aperitif in blues” (11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.) again in the “village” in Piazza Lago.
During these five days, there are therefore going to be 19 scheduled concerts, which will involve about 60 musicians coming from all over Europe, the U.S.A and Canada.
