“Videofestival Live International 2022-2023”.

 

Videofestival Live is one of the biggest Italian Music Festivals. It was created in Italy, 25 year ago, by the Event Organiser Gianni Lardera.

With the high quality of the artists’ performances at the festival, the event coordinators continue their professional mission in Italy. Since 2015, Videofestival Live has expanded the promotion of Italian music in other countries, encouraging Italian artists with their music and culture all over the world. 

Every year, thousands of artists from all parts of Italy participate in various castings of the Videofestival Live.

 

In 2015, for the first time in its history the festival went abroad with an event in Switzerland.

 

In 2016, the festival visited London as a guest at "Mau Mau Bar", as well as an invitee on the Italian radio station "London One Radio".

 

In 2017 Videofestival Live has performed in Jurmala within the “Days of Jomas Street” as special guests on the big stage together with “Tango Night”.

 

In 2018, for the first time ever on the Origo Summer Stage, a full festival show took place. It was brought to the public together with special guests from all over Europe (Switzerland, Norway, Latvia, Germany, Sweden, Italy). The winners and finalists of Videofestival 2018 performed in the concert, as well as the winners and finalists of the former festivals. Artists have performed their own songs, as well as covers of popular songs in the Italian and English languages.

 

In March 2019, for the first time, a vocal competition was organized in Riga, the main goal of which was to search for new talents and provide performances at various venues. The Grand Prix was a fully paid trip to Italy to the final of the Videofestival Live competition.

 

In July 2019, a promo tour concert was held in the cities of Bulgaria. Concerts took place on central stages in five different cities. We performed at Italian culture days in Burgas, at Velingrad city day celebrations, at the Roman stadium in Plovdiv, and a separate big concert was held in the cities of Kotel and Pestera. Professional Italian performers, as well as the Videofestival Live finalists, attended the show.

 

In August 2019, in Riga at the Origo Summer Stage, we were creating a 2.5-hour long show with Italian and international artists. The concert was attended by professional artists of the Italian label Pa74music from Germany, Ukraine, and Italy, together with finalists and winners of the vocal competition Videofestival Live International from Riga and Daugavpils.

 

In March 2020, in Estonia (Tallinn), was planned a vocal competition, the purpose of which was to search for new talents and provide performances at various venues in Europe. After the contest, the winners could perform in a gala concert together with artists from Ukraine, Italy, and Latvia. Unfortunately, with the pandemic situation a week before the event, everything was canceled.

 

Friendship, respect, and passion for music and art—this is our formula for keeping high quality and achieving better results for Videofestival Live.
