Rome’s Baths of Diocletian hosts three months of music, dance and art.
14 Sept-16 Dec. The evocative setting of Rome's Baths of Diocletian will provide the backdrop for three months of live performances, projections, art installations and talks by more than 40 international djs and artists, from 14 September until 16 December.
Entitled Ō / Musica, Danza e Arte, the festival programme features contemporary and experimental dance, innovative art installations, and dj sets while its live music programme ranges from electronic and alternative to techno, world and soul-pop.
The cultural line-up includes big names such as Anna Calvi, Matt Elliott, Jan Martens, Seth Troxler, Burnt Friedman and Julian Hargreaves.
Organisers say the three-month festival is built around four pillars: experimenting, being open to new experiences, interaction, and getting to know each other. The festival is divided into two sections: the first part takes place until 14 October in the Baths of Diocletian, part of the Museo Nazionale Romano complex, before moving to the nearby Octagonal Hall (ex Planetarium venue) on Via Giuseppe Romita 8 until 16 December.
Entry is free for all events, subject to availability, but reservation is required. For full details see festival website or Facebook page.
