Club To Club's 16th edition reinforces its reputation as international festival of avant-garde and new pop.

45.000 people from 33 countries in Turin over 5 days of festival
Yesterday’s spectacular block party Dance Salvario closed #IAMC2C, 16th edition of Club To Club, which confirmed itself as the most important musical avant-pop event in Italy. Over 50 artists from 15 countries gave life to over 70 performances and activities, among which were 18 national exclusives and 12 national debuts.
A 40-hour voyage through new sounds from the globe, crowned by stellar performances from Junun, Dj Shadow, Arca, Ghali and Autechre. An exceptional ride for the 45.000people that took part in the festival’s 5 days of events between great visionary artists, futuristic accelerationism, pioneers of today’s sound and new frontiers and different latitudes.Over 1000 accredited journalists and professionals from all over the world had the chance to discover, thanks to Club To Club’s programme, prestigious and unique venues from the most regal and experimental city in Italy, from the Palace of Venaria (with the exciting Audi-presented Grand Opening) to Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi to the cultural melting pot of  San Salvario, heart of Turinese creativity and breathing laboratory of a new global society.

Not only music, as usual, in the rich programme, never before this dense and articulate thanks to the well-established formats that are integral part of the festival.

Dozens of activities (between workshops, screenings, Q&As, international public talks) hosted by Absolut Symposium, the innovative festival HQ by Club To Club and main partner Absolut, have involved historical music names and news stars from the world in conversation with creative minds, influencers and professionals.

The 2016 edition of the festival’s closing block party Dance Salvario was packed with incredibly diverse content, engaging the entire neighborhood’s social connections to reflect on global challenges and on the cross-pollination of cultures.

Contributing to the festival’s ever-expanding musical palette were A Great Symphony For Torino, the augmented reality soundtrack created for the city by Xplosiva and British Council, and the partnership with Red Bull Music Academy, a true musical institution on a global scale, that has brought to the Sala Gialla stage some of the most exciting acts of today’s scene like Daphni, Amnesia Scanner, Gaika and One Circle.

As always part of the Turinese Art Week, Club To Club has created a perfect synergy with the Torino+Piemonte Contemporary Art circuit, giving life to a real network with some of the most important entities in the Region such as Luci D’Artista, Paratissima, Torino Graphic Days, Operae, DAMA and Reggia di Venaria.

The extraordinary success of #IAMC2C has been made possible by the precious support of prestigious institutions (Regione Piemonte, Fondazione per la Cultura Torino, Compagnia di San Paolo, Fondazione CRT, Camera di Commercio di Torino, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands) and by the fundamental support of private partners that have worked side by side with the Club To Club team to further enrich the cultural contents of the event: Absolut, Audi, Red Bull Music Academy, IED, KLM, Tuborg.

New dates and projects for 2017 will be announced shortly on the official websitehttps://clubtoclub.it and on our social networks: Follow #C2C!
