Get ready for the Sanremo Music Festival 2016!
The over sixty-year-old Festival of Italian Song in Sanremo, better known simply as the Sanremo Festival, is the most important Italian song festival which brings out every year new songs and new performers.
The festival is held annually between mid-February and early March at the Ariston theater - and it is already been planned for next February, from 9 to 13 - although until 1976 was held at the Casino. On stage at the festival have alternated the greatest talents of Italian music with major international guests who change every year.
Every edition of the Festival presents songs of various premiered performers, and despite the succession of changes remains one of the most important and discussed in the Italian scene.
