Festival Il Lago Cromatico 2024 – X edition

The new season of the Festival Il Lago Cromatico, now in its 10th edition, will come to life from June 21, 2024, and will enliven the territories and shores of Lake Maggiore until September 28, 2024.

This edition will draw strength from the previous ones, taking the best from past experiences with the aim of creating a surprising, luminous, and innovative event, capable of transporting the audience to new worlds, new stars. Once again, the program will be rich in genres, styles, and different arts.

The goal remains to amaze the audience, promote the beauty and excellence of the area, talk about dreams and big projects - both near and far - and, as always, to tell engaging stories.

The Festival program will feature concerts and other cultural initiatives aimed at spreading culture and promoting and enhancing the knowledge of the area.
