Ortigia sound system 2017


It’s not just a “musical festival”. We are talking about a complete artistic event. That will offer music, acting, visual art. All this (and much more) is the Ortigia sound system: the 2017 edition will take place from July 24th to 30th.


The 2017 edition

This year, on the stage of the Ortigia sound system, will perform:

  • Mount Mimbie;
  • Erlend Øye;
  • Gaika;
  • Sevdaliza;
  • Paquita Gordon;
  • Palms Trax;
  • Avalon Emerson;
  • Moses Boyd;
  • Awesome Tapes from Africa;
  • Baba Stiltz;
  • Black Spuma;
  • Stump Valley;
  • Gommage DJ Team.

Thirteen artists for a mix of electronic music, indie-rock and indie-pop music, rap, DJ music, dub step, hip-hop.


Not only music

These are the main protagonists of Ortigia sound system 2017. Here, we can give you two (more) good tips:

  • Ortigia is a small island connected to the mainland by three bridges. It is a real open-air museum. In fact, we are talking about one of the most beautiful places in Sicily.
  • How long have you planned to stay in Sicily? Well, Syracuse is a must-see place during every holiday along the Sicilian east coast: the other places to see are Messina, Taormina and Catania.


How to get there

From Catania (one of the main ports where ferries to Sicily dock), just take the A18 motorway towards south and follow the road signs to Syracuse: the journey by car takes about one hour and thirty minutes.
