August 17, Thursday, concert by Luigi Stranges. 22 years old, eclectic artist, versatile songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. At just 15 years old, thanks to his natural ability, he began self-producing his first songs until he presented the unreleased “Vivo” to Amici in September 2021. The song gives him the right to participate in the program, and a few months later he wins the 21st edition of the Maria De Filippi Talent Show. On June 3, 2022, he released his first EP “Strangis”, which included songs featured during the program, including the single “Keep me tonight”. In September, he released the single “Stai Bene Su Tutto” which anticipates the unreleased album “Voglio la Gonna” released in October 2022. The same month, the live-action Il Talento di Mr. Crocodile. Produced by Sony Pictures and distributed by Warner Bros Entertainment Italia, Luigi interprets Lyle the Crocodile’s Italian songs, originally performed by Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes. After the first concerts of the summer (including in front of more than five thousand people in the stadium in his Lamezia Terme), in November 2022 he performed in two long-awaited sold-out live performances at Alcatraz in Milan and at Orion in Rome. . On March 31, 2023, he released the single “Adamo ed Eva” (distributed by Artist First), a pop rock song that talks about the pursuit of free, carnal and irrational love, in which the pleasure lies in having each other. However, on May 5, “Tulipani Blu”, a new single with Matteo Romano, was released.
Friday, August 18 concert of the Car Thieves with the song “What are you waiting for”.
Saturday 19 August, Planet Funk concert, an audiovisual show with beautiful visuals that will accompany the music. This is a mix show between a DJ set and a live performance featuring two historical singers, Dan Black and Alex Ullmann, who also alternate on guitars. The international-sounding Italian band, after “World’s End” released in January, returns with second single “Any Given Day”; available from June on radio and on all digital platforms of the record company Just Entertainment. “Any Given Day”, from the soon-to-be-released album, is one of the last works of the entire band: in fact, apart from Marco Baroni, Alex Neri, Domenico Canu and Alex Ullman, Sergio Della Monica has recently passed away. . A single that confirms the band’s unmistakable sound, the mix of funk and electronica that has distinguished them since their first album “Non Zero Sumness” and their cult hits that have been around the world such as “Chase The Sun”, “Who Said”, “Inside All People” and many more “Any Given Day” is a song about finding confidence in an increasingly insecure world When no words are set in stone and a reputation is built on fake news and superficial strokes, words and acts comfort and compassion are more important than ever When everything means nothing, you need someone or something to turn to Partner, someone you love, friend, someone you can really trust and who will always be there “any day.” These are the statements of the Planet Funk collective, who with this new single and forthcoming album, declare the ambition to take another step in the extraordinary success story that they have held for over 20 years.
