Locarno Folk - HOME

IT / EN / DE



After two live streams, LocarnoFOLK will propose its third spring concert on 21 May at the Oratorio San G. Bosco in Minusio as live music: you will be able to immerse yourselves in all safety in the Balkan-inspired, rap-tinged world-trance of the Lolomis band. 

After the success of the first concert in live streaming, also the second concert of LocarnoFOLK Events 2021 will be proposed as a virtual appointment. On April 17, the audience will be able to take another musical journey, the one proposed by Nadia Gabi & Le Due nel Cappello and by Raissa Aviles, who will take us from Ticino to South America. 

The first concert of LocarnoFOLK Events 2021 will be broadcast LIVE via STREAMING. On 27th of March the group Pierino e i lupi will take the audience on a musical journey through space and time.

Following the recent restrictions on cultural events we have reluctantly decided to postpone the concert "The last Rebetiko" of 27 November to a safer and more serene period.

LocarnoFOLK will host three exceptional young harpists from three countries for a world premiere on 22 October in Minusio: Elisa Netzer from Switzerland, Ailie Robertson from Scotland and Adriano Sangineto from Italy.


After the Corona-related break, LocarnoFOLK restarts full of energy and enthusiasm. The season kicks off next 10 October at the Teatro del Gatto in Ascona with the exciting project "LinguaMadre: Il Canzoniere di Pasolini".

To brighten up your summer, we propose you three concerts of Ticino music in the "lounge" of Piazza Grande in Locarno, on August 8th. With the support of the City of Locarno, we are thus contributing to the restart of popular live music in Italian-speaking Switzerland.
