Moon&Stars competition

Unfortunately there are no contests available at the moment. We look forward to having you join the next time!

The festival

Nine evenings, twenty gigs in the Piazza Grande featuring major stars including Eros Ramazzotti, Snow Patrol and Joss Stone to name but three, plus over forty free gigs in the Piazza Piccola and a Food & Music Street with more than twenty food trucks and bars. The events in the Piazza Grande are always in the evening, while the Food & Music Street is open daily from 4 p.m.

Other things to do

The music and the events in and around the Piazza Grande are, of course, the focus of the festival. But there's also so much else to discover during the day, like swimming in the lake, hiking in the hills and cycling in the valleys – experience the sheer variety of the region! After all, where else can you get from palm trees to a glacier in a handful of hours?


Stay in Ascona-Locarno – you'll love it! Whether you need a bed for the night after a long evening of festival partying or something a little more upmarket for a longer break, take a look at what's currently available on our books.
