Beyond Music: Culture and Innovation

LacMus Festival is not just about music: creating and spreading “culture” in a wide sense is a key point of its mission.

In history, Lake Como was often chosen as a destination for traveling or staying by renowned artists and writers. Therefore the festival’s program often includes exhibitions underlying the evident links between history, art, music and this territory, becoming a source of great research value.

The festival is also supporting cultural development and innovation.
Actually, the festival’s programs are featuring:
» the wi-fi headphones experience: a way to listen to music while exploring and walking through the venues;
» the sunrise concerts: breathtaking experiences with breakfast and yoga sessions included;
» LacMus Educational: concerts with music education purposes.
