For its fifth edition Settembre-Prato è Spettacolo, hosted by the nice little town of Prato (next to Florence, Italy) makes it big. It will take part from August 29th to September 3rd. While last edition gave the chance to listen to great alternative rock names such as Deus, Einsturzende Neubauten and Blonde Redhead, this year the festival widens the horizon to different musical forms, from Italian pop to indie rock, from rap to elegant crooning. Always with high level names.
Lineup includes popular Italian acts like SALMO, Gazzelle, Subsonica and Carl Brave. On August 31st there will be Mike Patton, leader of Faith No More and Mr Bungle. He is in love with Italy and its romantic music. Mondo Cane is his personal interpretation of all time hits of Italian easy listening. The most interesting day will be September 1st, when American cult bands Flaming Lips and Eels will share the stage.
