The international music festival with free admission, now in its fourth edition, will take place on three evenings: Friday 20, Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 July. An unprecedented in recent history, but already significant of an event able to immediately establish itself as one of the most important events not only in Tuscany, but throughout Italy.

The location will not change: on the stage set up in the garden of Palazzo Mediceo (in front of the main entrance of the 'Unesco), will alternate international stars and young local bands for a tribute to the blues and its various forms.

THE HISTORY

Seravezza Blues Festival represents the main event of the cultural association "Alexandre Mattei", founded in memory of the Pietrasian musician who died prematurely in 2015 and engaged in various charitable projects. In that same year, the first edition of the festival was held, held baptism by the legendary Guitar Crusher, whose concert - in the garden adjacent to the Villa Medicea - attended over 1500 people. Successful repetition in 2016, when in front of about 2000 people have performed - always on a single date - some of the most interesting names in the European blues scene as Marcos Coll, Tom Blacksmith and Jaime Dolce. 2017 was the year of the turning point for Seravezza Blues Festival: no more but two dates (with two guests of the highest level, McKinley Moore and Ana Popovic), moving the venue in the garden in front of Palazzo Mediceo, birth of the Village del Blues, with flea markets and exhibitions of musical exhibition and inauguration of the "Proposals" section with the "Road to Seravezza Blues" competition. More than 5,000 people have taken part in the event.

The grand finale on Sunday 22nd July, with performances by performers who will embrace every stage (past, present and future) of the international blues.

In fact, many events will be on the sidelines of the three evenings of Seravezza Blues Festival: the Medici Theater at Scuderie will host cultural and educational initiatives related to music, including master classes with international and local artists, as well as several meetings throughout the weekend.
