Ferrara Buskers Festival
35th edition | 23rd - 28th August 2022 | The most important international event based on street music and art
From 23rd to 28th August Ferrara Buskers Festival 35th consecutive edition will take place, going back to the origins. The streets in the city centre once again will be filled up by the joyful audience, whose attention is caught by this event's absolute uniqueness, event specific for street musicians, the biggest one in the world.
As every year, from 1994, the collaboration with Comacchio's Municipality is confirmed: in fact the event will start on the 23rd of August with Comacchio traditional preview, where Buskers will play across the streets and canals of the city, from 9.30 p.m.
From the 24th of August the event moves to the estense admnistrative center. The Festival will welcome the best buskers in the world, who will interchange from sunset to midnight in a route that touches the most evocative squares and spots of this marvelous city.
This edition's mood is lightheartedness, that the Festival could give, especially after the past two years. Among this year's news we have Buskers Food Village in Piazza Castello, with highly selected food trucks to combine music and street food. DopoFestival returns, by popular demand after two years, organised by the Association Puedes, and, for the first time, it will take place in Parco Massari, from midnight on and it will introduce buskers groups but also djset and live concerts. To further enrich the agenda, there'll be some collateral activities such as: musical laboratories for adults and children, enogastronomic tastings and debates on natural environment and social commitment and Festival's talks. "Progetto Young - Fateci Strada" is confirmed also this year, to let young buskers musicians, for their first street experiences, live a sharing experience, not only musical.
The Festival commitment is since always designed to the natural environment's respect: therefore every year projects and initiatives aimed at a "green" and active conscience awareness are presented. BGreen Project by Ferrara Buskers Festival is dedicated, this year, to seas protection and, besides follow-up meetings, an icon will be the artwork by SCART Project, exhibited in Estense Castle's court. The sculpture, completely realised with food packagings, has a tangible visual meaning of how pollution and plastic wastes are weakening the marine ecosystem.
So, Ferrara Buskers Festival is much more than a music festival. It's union and sharing of different arts, musics and cultures. A journey, an experience thanks to which, step by step, you can discover a new world.
