European Celtic Contest

In collaboration with the Druidia Festival of Cesenatico (province of Rimini), Mutina Boica Festival of Modena, Fairylands Celtic Festival of Guidonia (Rome) and Crono Sound Factory of Vimodrone (Milan), the European Celtic Contest returns to Montelago in its third edition, with new creative talents from the European folk scene competing against each other in the magnificent setting of the Mortimer Pub. The four finalist groups will battle it out in front of a professional jury from the music industry; up for grabs is the chance to play, in 2018, at Montelago Celtic Festival and at the Contest’s three collaborative Celtic festivals, along with the chance to record a single at the Crono Sound Factory studio.

Globe-trotter sounds of Europe awaken, the journey continues...
