Artists

Music has a superpower: it brings people together, leading them to a magic place where they can taste the freedom to imagine themselves as different, similar, others. For the 2021 Komendunesi Festival, twenty-four artists from different European countries - Italy, Austria, Germany, Spain, Poland and Hungary - will perform in Comenduno. Each of them will bring their language, their history, their uniqueness and their enthusiasm. Below you can see the faces and read the stories of the artists who will fill up our festival with energy.
