Third edition of Suns Europe: The beauty of diversity goes on stage in Udine

UDINE – This year Suns Europe will be electro-pop, rock & roll, but also rap, indie rock, electronic drums and much more… because Suns Europe is not only about music! Day after day, the cast of the 3-day festival (30 th November – 2 nd December) is progressively taking shape: along with the Friulian hosts, there will be bands, filmmakers, writers and performers from the Basque Country, Wales, Grisons, Brittany, Galicia, Lower Saxony, Occitania, Sápmi (best known as Lapland), Ireland, Sardinia and Buryatia (near Mongolia).
For the third year, Suns Europe will bring together ancient languages and modern forms of communication. A festival made of art, contamination, talent, linguistic pluralism and creativity. Once again, the festival will hit the stage at Teatro Nuovo Giovanni da Udine (but not only, this year), where music, cinema, theatre and literature expressed in minority languages of the Old Continent will be the true protagonists.

With the 2017 edition, Suns Europe confirms once again its role of leading European festival to promote and raise awareness of minority languages among people and received the patronage of the Council of Europe for the third consecutive year. Our goal? To promote unique and refined artistic productions, showing how linguistic diversity in Europe is a fundamental right, as well as an invaluable creative resource. Hundreds of artists will arrive in Udine to create a real and not-to- be-missed “Babel” of languages, sounds and contaminations and to involve all local citizens in this rich programme of events. A three-day festival that will culminate with the main event at Teatro Giovanni da Udine, Saturday 2 nd December at 09.00 pm.
