Alkantara Fest

International folk and world music festival
Alkantara Fest was founded in 2004 in the area of the river Alcantara named by the Arabs ‘Al qantarah’. The vision of the Alkantara Fest is to disseminate the rich musical traditions of Sicily in relation to other European cultures.
Like the river from which it derives its name, Alkantara’s source comes from the very heart of Mount Etna and looks towards the Mediterranean and even beyond to the north and east of Europe.
The realization of the Alkantara Fest is like an imaginary journey throughout history, nature and different traditions. Our aim is to demonstrate how Sicily, such a big melting-pot of styles, influences, races and cultures, can be deeply and intimately connected to an ideal thread to each different European popular tradition.
