Canceled: Avant at Castello Volante di Corigliano d’Otranto in Lecce, south Italy / 6+7.11.2020

Avant is a new boutique music festival showcasing the natural and architectural beauty of Apulia, southern Italy. The 1st edition takes place on 6th-7th November in Lecce, a city renowned for its Roman origins and sparkling Baroque style. The festival is a slow, intimate experience of local culture and tradition, with mild seasonal temperatures, outside of the peak tourist season.

Avant aims to bring together diverse, quality avant-garde musicians to the Baroque city of southern Italy. They are theremin mastermind Dorit Chrysler, Raster’s sonic electronic musician Grischa Lichtenberger, experimental guitarist Julia Reidy, Italian experimental composer Donato Epiro and pop singer Lucia Manca.

Picturesque views surround, throughout a programming of indoor & outdoor activities. Guests are invited for a hiking tour and lunch on Apulia’s Adriatic coast, between the city of Otranto and the lighthouse at Punta di Palascìa, a breathtaking spot on Italy’s most easterly point.

There will also be a sound walk around Lecce’s old town and the stunning castle Castello Carlo V, as well as a course in fresh pasta with artisanal chef Anna Quarta.
