Music is a powerful and universal medium that brings people together from all backgrounds and walks of life. To celebrate this, we are excited to announce the launch of a new section dedicated to showcasing music events from around the world. We want to hear from you about important music events that take place in your country and we may even select it for an upcoming article in the following month.

One such event that captures the attention of Italy annually is the Sanremo Music Festival 💐

Everything you need to know about Sanremo

The Sanremo Music Festival is an annual event that takes place in the seaside town of Sanremo, Italy. It is the longest-running national TV music contest in the world and lasts for a week. During the festival, artists perform their new and unreleased songs live on stage and on national television. The audience plays a crucial role in choosing the winner, as they can vote for their favorite song from home. The winner of the competition is given the opportunity to represent Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest, which was highly inspired by the Italian kermesse.

Over the years, the Sanremo Music Festival has seen the participation of more than a thousand artists, including notable figures such as Nilla Pizzi, the first winner ever, Mina, Adriano Celentano, Patty Pravo, but also Laura Pausini, Eros Ramazzotti, Andrea Bocelli, Giorgia, Il Volo, Måneskin, and Mahmood, who won the latest edition alongside Blanco.

Now we want to hear from you 🎤

Will you follow the competition this year? Have you in the past? But most importantly, what's the biggest music event in your Country?
