Folkest Showcases for international emerging artists in the field of world music are a new section of the festival’s program. They will take place from 30th June to 2nd July 2023 on the stage of the Castle in San Daniele del Friuli, in the province of Udine.
20 European emerging artists will be selected by an international jury to participate in Folkest Showcases, during one of the most important Folk Festivals in Southern Europe.
The selected artists will be seen and heard by international agents, festival programmers, music curators and of course by our festival audience!
They will also have the chance to get feedback from industry professionals, to expand their network of contacts, and to be hired for future shows and participate in Folkclinic.
Folkest Festival is a member of UPBEAT- the European Showcase Platform for World Music. Our Showcases program is supported by UPBEAT, the Friuli Venezia Giulia region and the Municipality of San Daniele del Friuli (Udine).
