Beautiful Souls

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.

Beautiful Places

Our beautiful Sicily frames the festival by returning a wonderful atmosphere and all the charge of our beloved Etna!

Making it possible! ❤

Our volunteers fill the festival with energy, making the Alkantara fest a powerful emotional charge, making it all possible! Every piece of the puzzle is important and makes possible the realization of this piece of folk heart in the middle of Sicily!
