The festival program has 6 concerts, from the 4th of July to the 8th of August.

Opening night on Saturday, the 4th of July with Mambi's Cuban music, five talented musicians that reinterpret the most popular musical genres of the Caribbean island: el Son, Guaracha, Habanera, Afro and Rumba – all typical traditional Cuban music. The lead singer of the band is Carlos Miguel Hernandez. Versatile singer, born and raised in Havana, he was lead singer in bands conducted by living legends of Cuban music such as Argelia Fragoso, Anabel Lopez, Donato Poveda, Luis Carbonnel.

For our second night the Festival lands in the U.S.A., on the banks of Mississippi. On Friday, the 10th of July, the Mp Delta Blues Orchestra is on, a 14 people band led by blues man Micki Piperno, and for this one night only they bring two special guests, two icons of American black music: singer Harold Bradley and saxophonist Eric "Saxman" Daniel. Harold Bradley, born in Chicago, is an amazing black music singer, from soul to gospel. This Versatile artist has a fascinating biography spent between America and Italy: he was a professional football player, a painter, a musician, a theater actor, a radio presenter, a TV presenter and he also worked in the field of cultural outreach (in the sixties in his studio in Trastevere he built the Folkstudio, the fabulous club where a lot of famous artists played when they were still unknown: Bob Dylan, Guccini and De Gregori, just to name a few). Eric Daniel, born in Washington, played with Jerry Lewis, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder and he also worked in Broadway in Bob Fosse's shows.

On the 18th of July we have Mediterranean music with the Capone & BungtBangt, the Neapolitan band that plays a formidable set of “ecological" instruments made with recycling materials: working tools, brooms with rubber bands, ice cream boxes, pieces of wooden floor, garbage cans, a costume that goes way back to the ancient tradition of bottari. BungtBangt are very popular also to TV audience since they are the protagonists of the “Tim Tribù” commercial and because they played the song “La paranza” together with Daniele Silvestri at the Sanremo Festival in 2007.
