Sherwood Festival 2016

A summer of music and culture at the Stadio Euganeo in Padova

From 08 June 2016 to 16 July 2016

Bookable services

From 8 June to 16 July 2016 the great music of the Sherwood Music Festival is back! Summer events, shows and concerts in Padua!

The rich program of the Sherwood Festival Padova is now defined and, in addition to the likes of Fatboy Slim, Clementino and Subsonica, there will be cultural events, debates and original evening! A perfect mix to replicate the great success of the previous editions of the Padova Sherwood Festival!

The location has not changed, confirming all events of Padova Sherwood at the North Park Stadio Euganeo in Padova. The organizers said that the confirmation of the Sherwood Festival at Stadio Euganeo has been given by the engaging and decisive response of thousands of people that every year take part in the event, clearly demonstrating that the public appreciate the location and follow the event with great enthusiasm. The Sherwood Festival Padova is a totally independent event of culture and music that every year relies on many volunteering collaborators who work to create a vibrant public space in constant evolution, where live theatre, music, sports, current affairs debates and more take place.

The Padua Sherwood Festival program for 2016 includes more than just musical events: to enrich the event there will be different thematic debates, scheduled every Monday evening, presentations and cultural meetings to be held inside the stand Zoom Outà under the management of Global Project.

Among the interesting new features of the Padova Sherwood Festival 2016 we point out the Festivals in the Festival:

  • June 26 - Call for Artists for Refugees - a great initiative, a free and open space where different artists can freely express themselves in support of refugees and migrants. The purpose is to show solidarity to those who flee from poverty and war through art!
  • June 29 - Sherwood Reggae Day - 2nd Edition with Macka B & The Roots Ragga Band. Open act: BomChilom & Mr. Robinson. Considered one of the most influential mc / toaster UK, Macka B continues his brilliant career between roots and reggae that spans more than thirty years!
  • July 8 - Sherwood Hip Hop Day - 7th Edition with Clementino. Open Act: Massima Tackenza; aftershow: Freestyle Final Battle & Showcases.

The Radio Sherwood Festival of Padua was founded in 1976 as the 'best alternative' to the political and cultural flatness that prevailed at that time. Over the years, the event has had increasing success, dictated by the inclusion of new musical and cultural projects. Today Padova Sherwood has become one of the most important musical and cultural national events.

The beginning of the Padova Sherwood Festival 2016 is scheduled for 8 June ... Write down the date and the events that interest you most!
