The musical event of the year: Lucca Summer Festival 2019

Durata: No time set / Location: Lucca

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.

The guests of 2019

After the last two memorable seasons of the festival, the Lucca Summer Festival 2019 is ready to amaze again with a wide and varied musical choice that will satisfy all tastes. Among the first to perform there are two pillars of the Italian music scene: the composer Ennio Morricone with his “The final Concert” on June 29th and Francesco De Gregori and Orchestra on July 30th. There will certainly be international names, not to be missed is the appointment with Take That, among the first to perform at the festival on June 28th, and the one with Elton John with his road tour on July 7th. The Lucca Summer Festival 2019 will be closed with a bang on Sting on July 29th. The youngest can find members of the Italian rap scene such as Salmo, live on July 19th and Gemitaiz, on July 26th, who chose the Lucca film festival 2019 as their Summer Tour dates. Among the many names, those of other big names also stand out Italians like Giorgia and Eros Ramazzotti.

Choose Hotel Galilei and discover the festival and Tuscany

After witnessing the extraordinary live of your singer or your favorite band in Lucca, you can take the opportunity to visit the beautiful Tuscany, rich in characteristic and particularly suggestive locations during the summer season. If you are a sea lover, for example, you can take a tour of the Versilia coast, with its picturesque seaside towns such as Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi. If you prefer the mountains, you can visit the nearby Garfagnana, located between the mountains and with picturesque medieval villages to visit. Finally, if you are a more traditional tourist, next to Lucca you can find two famous historic Tuscan cities with their famous tourist attractions: Florence and Pisa.
Pisa, city of the leaning tower, is located just 20 minutes from Lucca and is an excellent solution to stay a few km from the chaos of Lucca during the festival. We at Hotel Galilei Pisa provide a shuttle service that will take you to the Lucca Summer Festival as soon as possible. Choose our Hotel in Pisa and live your Summer Festival with us!
