Berklee College of Music’s campus in Valencia, Spain, will host its first-ever Musaico Festival on Saturday, April 28, at Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias.

 

"We are thrilled to announce the very first music festival powered by Berklee, one of the most prestigious music school in the world," said Emilien Moyon, Program Director for Berklee's Global Entertainment and Music Business master’s program. "The concept is to showcase the incredible talents of our students in a free festival that is accessible to the community. All festival goers including family and kids are welcome to this unique experience to celebrate music in the beautiful City of Arts and Science."

 

This eclectic festival will have two music stages and a packed array of family activities, food trucks, and refreshing beverages starting at 12:00pm.

 

Ensemble performances during the day will feature a wide variety of styles with musicians from all over the world sharing their artistic voices. At night, Discover-I takes the stage, converging technological devices that make a futuristic, risky, yet avante-garde performance. Berklee Valencia is unique in that its musicians represent over 100 countries in North America, South America, Asia, Europe and Africa. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see people from hundreds of cultures take a single stage and perform music together.

 


Musaico Festival is the result of Berklee’s mission to embrace and foster creativity, innovation, and excellence. This year, for the first time ever, business students will organize this festival as a contribution to the community. As young music professionals, these students believe it is their duty to host an event of this magnitude to present high-quality music for the Valencian people.
