Amongst the most appreciated and much awaited music, arts and electronic culture festivals in Italy and internationally, Club To Club will celebrate its 12th edition in Turin, from 8th to 11th November 2012….So says the blurb and the lineup is pretty huge. Shamelessly branded to death with Alfa Romeo but, hey ho, that appears to be the world we live in. Check out the full blurb below, it looks pretty good – Actress, Flying Lotus and Jeff Mills would be my pick of the bunch but there's something for everyone in there……
An Italian festival with a European vocation (featuring recent events in Istanbul), with a consolidated and unique identity in the music festivals scenario, Club To Club Alfa Romeo MiTo will offer its well-tested mix of worldwide acclaimed artists and unforgettable locations: an exclusive circuit of baroque theatres, contemporary art centres, clubs, post industrial pavilions, historical squares, creative districts, classical auditoriums, in the week during which Torino is the international capital of the contemporary world with events such as ARTissima, Luci d'Artista, Torino Piemonte Contemporary Arts and Club To Club Alfa Romeo MiTo. More than 26,000 people, from all over Italy and abroad, have enthusiastically taken part in last year's edition of the festival.
An energy boost this year comes from Red Bull that, already partner in 2011, brings forward the fruitful collaboration choosing Club To Club Alfa Romeo MiTo as first Italian festival featuring the Red Bull Music Academy stage.
A rich preview will anticipate in October the festival's unwinding. These are the main dates: in London, Club To Club Alfa Romeo MiTo will present a special night dedicated to the new musical and artistic Italian creativity (a tribute to the 2011 edition's theme, The Italian New Wave). On 27th and 28th October, the Turin/Milan axis will witness two days of live music and cultural events.
