SOLD-OUT EVENTS, GREAT EXCLUSIVE PERFORMANCE, ATTENTIVE AND AWARE PUBLIC, MAGICAL ATMOSPHERE
A SUCCESS BEYOND ALL LIMITS FOR THE LOCUS FESTIVAL. SEE YOU IN LOCOROTONDO FOR THE XVII EDITION, FROM 31 JULY TO 15 AUGUST 2021, WISHING BETTER TIMES FOR THE WHOLE MUSICAL SECTOR.
The last sold out event was also completed, on August 15th in Masseria in Locorotondo, the musical programming of the 2020 limited edition Locus festival ended, with a positive balance beyond all limits. 12,000 spectators in total were sold out in all the evenings of the festival, starting with the two initial concerts in the Archaeological Park of Egnazia with Niccolò Fabi in trio and with Vinicio Capossela, and continuing in the Masseria Ferragnano of Locorotondo with Calibro 35, Venerus , Michael League and Bill Laurance, Fatoumata Diawara, Orchestra della Magna Grecia, Kekko Fornarelli, Thinkaboutit, Ghemon, La Municipal, Colapesce Dimartino, Khalab, The Comet is Coming, Lorenzo Senni, Saint Voyage, Napoli Segreta.
Great participation was also recorded by the free side events in the historic center: the Locusfocus talks, the night films of the Locusmovies series, and above all the great exhibition of the photographer Guido Harari: “Sonica” remains on display until August 23 every day from 16 to 21 inside the Perle di Memoria Museum and outside on via San Michele Arcangelo, also in Locorotondo.
We want to thank all the public who rewarded us with their presence, despite the limitations of this strange summer: mask, distance, seats also for shows that invite to the dance: a proof of great patience and responsibility by the vast majority of people.
Our thanks is also due to the institutions that have encouraged and recognized the cultural value and social role of our festival: the Municipalities of Locorotondo and Fasano, the Puglia Region, the Archaeological Museum of Egnazia.
Thanks to the private individuals who have not abandoned us despite the delicate moment for the economy: the Official Partner Tormaresca, the official carrier Ferrovie del Sud Est, the main sponsors Autoclub Group, BCC Locorotondo, Marino Bus, and the main partners who worked at our side, from the ticketing of Dice, to the food & beverage of Pescaria, Eatria, Acqua Orsini, the hospitality of Tenuta Monacelle and the many partners in the area.
Impossible to mention one by one all the staff members, all the suppliers, the technicians, who worked hard until mid-August and beyond to realize the little miracle of this limited edition, we will never stop thanking them, together with the many friends who have us achieved and supported in several ways.
Let’s leave the artists for last, because they are the center around which everything revolves and which gives meaning to everything, and their incredible performances have been food for the soul of exceptional importance. With them we share the destiny that unites us in this historical circumstance. The success of the Locus festival does not make us forget that our production sector is on its knees, and many other events have failed to take place. Therefore, also for the Locus it is not time to celebrate, and we hope that our success will be a stimulus and hope for everyone.
From tomorrow work begins for the 17th edition of the Locus festival, scheduled from 31 July to 15 August 2021: with the recovery of the claim “Open-eyed music” we will try to recover all that we have lost in 2020, starting with the two dates already announced and on sale: Niccolò Fabi with the band on July 31, and Willie Peyote on August 7, 2021. Tickets already purchased remain valid for these two postponed dates. We hope to be able to confirm soon Nick Murphy and other artists we had to give up this year due to the global pandemic.
Let’s stay in touch through our social networks and the locusfestival.it site for updates and upcoming previews.
