While there are many ways to spend a holiday with the family, taking part in the Alkantara World and Folk Music Festival on Etna volcano (Sicily, Italy)  is a unique experience to reconnect with yourself, the people around you, and nature. This is a gathering of good people filled with regenerative energy and inspiring music from various parts of the world.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my participation in Alkantara fest. The festival is well organised, and the staff and volunteers are friendly and welcoming. The technical crew (sound, light) are professional and helpful. The quality of sound? Fabulous. The artists are diverse, and I especially enjoyed the traditional masters/maestras of Sicilian music that were presented at the festival. The idyllic surroundings, the lush countryside, the open sky, the shining moon, the possibility of camping on site, all contribute to the experience of being immersed in the festival and music. I loved my experience at Alkantara fest and would highly recommend it to everyone.

If I return to Sicily it would be very tragic if I didn’t include Alkantara Fest as part of my tour! Some of you may have had a dip into the refreshing water of the Alcantara river. Alkantara Fest will not be icy cold but caressingly warm ! I’d call it a boutique music festival that allows you to get up and personal with local and international artists that are invited to share the regions cultural and gastronomical delights with stories and songs from their homeland. I was introduced to Bal Folk here and it was fantastic to feel the energy via dance. Caring for our natural environment is also a major part of the festival. Guided tours to Mt Etna and the nearby coastline were very special enabling the opportunity to bond with fellow travellers and music patrons. The organisers were very welcoming and knowledgable making the experience truly memorable.

Alkantara Fest is one of the best festivals in Sicily for the music it offers and for all the collateral activities. I love going there to play as well as being simply a listener.
