Club To Club 2018: LA LUCE AL BUIO

Almost 60.000 people at Club To Club 2018

Almost 60,000 people took part in the biggest edition of the Festival's history

Sunday 4th November marked the end of the 18th edition of Club To Club Festival, which offered spectacular performances, extraordinary venues and record participation: almost 60,000 people from 61 different countries took part in the 4-day marathon. A consecutive record edition for the festival, which celebrated its 18th anniversary from 1st to 4th November in some of the most iconic locations in Turin. A success that confirms Club To Club as a benchmark in the Italian festival scene, in recognition of its finely curated lineup that aims to represent the diverse facets of contemporary music.

In the year of its coming of age, the festival gave life to an unprecedented edition: four days taking over some of the most compelling venues around the city, from OGR Torino to Lingotto and AC Hotel to the Palace of Venaria and the block party, one of the most significant moments of #C2C18.

The anniversary has been celebrated together with 50 artists from all 5 continents, 50 hours of non-stop music: among the outstanding moments is the all-encompassing show delivered by Aphex Twin who enraptured the audience with a blistering multi-dimentional show, writing a new page in the festival’s history. Alongside the legendary producer were thrilling shows by Jamie xx, Blood Orange, Beach House, Kode9, Robin Fox, Skee Mask, Vessel and many more.

“Club To Club 2018 confirms that the festival is one of the most relevant musical events in Italy. The 18th edition has been without the shadow of a doubt the best so far: I want to publicly thank artists, partners, professionals, the audience that together with our team made possible this exciting edition. This edition’s theme Light over darkness [La Luce Al Buio] will guide us towards the 19th with an unchanged avant-gardist spirit. Quoting Franco Battiato, “we are fireflies in the darkness”. – Sergio Ricciardone, Artistic Director
