After the great success of the 2016 edition, on Thursday, October 12, the third edition of 'Lucca Underground Festival', the event promoted by the V.A.G.A. Association (Atypical Visions of Young Artists) with the collaboration and contribution of the Municipality of Capannori, will start at the cultural center Artémisia in Tassignano.
The Festival has become one of the milestones of the national underground culture thanks to its mission of spreading an alternative culture in an artistically more or less homologated world, trying to offer not only a vision of the undergound works of the twentieth century, but also a showcase for young and old artists and intellectuals with a specific alternative artistic address.
This year the festival will propose a series of important appointments with exceptional guests until October 21st, giving particular emphasis to music from the initial event that includes the award of the Lucca Underground Festival 2017 for the promotion of underground culture to Rick Hutton and Clive Malcom Griffiths, famous presentators of the legendary Videomusic tv channel. Music is also the protagonist of other events, including the presentation of the book "Grunge" by the renowned music journalist Claudio Todesco, who deepens the well-known music phenomenon, a meeting with the songwriter, composer and lyricist Gian Pieretti that Jack Kerouac wanted during his stay in Italy and Claudio Damiani (poet), an initiative dedicated to inspirations and influences in the art of David Bowie by Massimiliano Poggi and also the participation of Charo Galura, a young Florentine singer with her latest work rich in electronic sound.
In the 2017 edition of the Festival there is also the Re-Beat Generation program this year will focusing on what may be its main reference author, William Burroughs, who wrote books such as "The Bare Meal " and " Wild Boys " whose influence was absolutely crucial to twentieth century culture not only in literature, but also in music and other artistic fields. The Re-Beat Generation show will feature short theater sketches and readings about Burroughs, who died 20 years ago and to whom also the festival poster by Zavattari is dedicated to.
This is the program of Saturday, October 14:
