The talk about Milan and Expo, be it good or bad, will not end any time soon. In this piece I will try to highlight what is “musically” consistent with the themes in Expo 2015; Estathè Market Sound (EMS).
The six month festival at the Mercati General di Milano has been organised in order to merge the love of music, food culture and the desire for fun. From 1st May 1 31st October at EMS there will be a high standard of artistic and cultural offering particularly when it comes to music; there will be 48 evening concerts and every Saturday and Sunday for six months the day events are free.
The live performances by Bombino e Marta sui Tubi, have been a great success as well as Strummer Calling with a series of performances dedicated to Joe Strummer. Worth mentioning is Verdena who will be performing on 12th June, then on 20th June Skrillex, 3rd July the legendary Toto, 6tth July the indie pop rock Australian Sheppard, 27th August gipsy punk-rock Gogol Bordello, and finally 19th September Subsonica with the tour of their album «Una nave in una foresta».
What has to be said is that being in Milan this summer isn’t really that bad!
