Default artisti di strada pennabilli

A fantastic festival in a very small town on a hill surrounded by countryside, not far from San Marino, Italy. Couldn't get more picturesque!!
The orginiser, Enrico is a great guy who has a full time job as an engineer, but somehow manages to coordinate hundreds of artists single handedly, and put together a festival with a brilliant atmosphere. He will bend over backwards to ensure that you have a good time.
The diversity and quality of acts was testiment to his comittment and love of street performance.
Tens of thousands of people flock from all around to pack the town to capacity over the 5 days.
The hats are probably not as big as some of you might expect, but the starting fee is good and the audience is excellent.
If you plan on coming to europe next year, you should definately try for this one. Best to learn some Italian first, as the audience don't have a broad understanding of english.
It's in the top 5 of my favourite festivals !!

ciao Gav,

I'm going to italia next june with some performer friends of mine,
we would love some information on this gig. I just sent them an
email in my mezzo/mezzo italiano, but if you have the organizer's
email I would love to send him another one directly to them.

Thanks for any info!

(I'm going to send you an email directly as well to make sure
you get this)

Paul

Hey Paul, this is the email we've always contacted him with info@artistiinpiazza.com
Let me know what you do as I organize performers for a festival in Zagreb, Croatia directly after penabilli. If you do something we both like, then it works out well for all of us.

I toured with The Flying Karamazov Brothers juggling troupe for a couple years and perform at festivals all over the US, among other things.. and my friends perform at festivals as well.
