The most awaited musical event of the summer is coming, not only Tuscan but Italian: the Lucca Summer Festival! The event, among the most appreciated and participated in Tuscany, for more than 20 years has been lighting up the summer evenings of Lucca with the best artists on the national and international music scene. To host the extraordinary performances of the artists will be the evocative Piazza Napoleone, within the Historic Center of Lucca, and a location of the Campo Balilla with the splendid setting of the Urban Walls. The festival, which has been on the scene since 1998, featured singers of the caliber of Bob Dylan and Anastacia and famous bands such as The Rolling Stones and The Script.
