Many times trying to make it there but unfortunately other compromises kept us away from it… But this year, in the already 20th edition, we from World is Music will be in full presence to experience the joy of different musical traditions from all the world and to expand our musical horizons!
This festival, organised by the city council of Sines, is the biggest event of world music in Portugal and folkloric expressions of different societies. A true gem when it comes to speak about summer celebrations: 59 concerts from every continent and almost 2/3 of its program is for free, happening in different streets of Porto Covo the first weekend and in Sines the next week.
Lisbon, certainly one of Southern Europe’s cultural centers, is in constant movement. This can be seen, for instance, by one of the festivals that the city hosts this week in the famous MusicBox. We are speaking about Jameson Urban Routes, an urban music festival established 7 years ago that seeks to bring many upcoming talents and already known ones on stage, from an alternative background and without limitations in their style of music.
Already in its second edition, the FAT FAT FAT Festivalorganised by the Italian electronic music collective Harmonized seems like it will have a bright future to come. Taking place between August 4 – 6 in the romantic region around the small historic towns of Corridonia and Morrovalle, some 20kms away from the Eastern Adriatic Coast in Italy, the setting is one of its charms – but not only.
We from World is Music have prepared a cozy and sweet warm up mix for the Fat Fat Fat. Expect a selection of tracks from many of the artists who are going this year. You will find some smooth jazz, disco, house and even techno in this mixtape for one of the best events of this year…
Recién llegados a Madrid, nos hemos llevado una más que grata sorpresa al descubrir que la ciudad está en pleno movimiento musicalmente hablando.

The end of the summer is coming and one of its highlights is close to us. The Dimensions Festival in Pula, Croatia, is celebrating its 5th anniversary with the same formula that has placed this venue on the top list of Europe’s festivals. We will explore the five main reasons why this festival has become so beloved by the international music crowd.
Our friends from Into the Valley have released the timetable, and we couldn’t be more excited to see this awesome line-up. We from World Is Music are going to preview each festival day and tell you which favourites we will pick to see every night!
From the 28th to 30th July 2016, one of the most spectacular and picturesque festivals of the Northern hemisphere will take place in an ancient volcano, now a fantastic turquoise lake in a limestone cove: The Into the Valley festival in Dalhalla, 2080 km north of Stockholm.
