Lights are out for the LocarnoFolk Festival 2018. The seventh edition came to an end on Saturday 18th of August at Parco di Orselina, with an overwhelming night of Balkan, gypsy music and dances. The event explored the theme of the "Balkan Route" and attracted almost 1500 people on the length of three days blessed with great weather.

The musical voyage carried the spectators from Istanbul to Budapest, passing through Sarajevo, Belgrade, and Zagreb, but also to Amsterdam, Berlin e Paris, thanks to multicultural bands, proving that music knows no borders. In addition to the concerts, the audience had a chance to learn dances and songs from the Balkans, see film projections and taste traditional specialties.

A heartfelt thank you to the large audience who attended, to all the staff members, the volunteers, the municipality of Orselina, to the Pro Orselina team, as well as to all the sponsors and partners!
See you all next year for a brand new adventure!
