That’s why the new edition also encompasses an assortment of music and culture based meetings, workshops and presentations in some of Torino’s most stunning locations. teatro-turin-club-to-club In addition to the return of A Great Symphony For Torino, a new format conceived for British Council in which young Italian and international producers, coordinated by an extraordinary tutor such as Kode9, compose a soundtrack for the city landmarks in “augmented reality” (agreatsymphony.net), there will be two ambitious and innovative projects defining this edition:   AbsolutSymposium, a new format created by Club To Club, who wants to actualize the definition of symposium by turning a 4-star hotel (the AC Hotel Torino in the Lingotto area) into the festival’s beating heart, its headquarters and round the clock meeting place for fans and professionals, which will present live shows, talks with artists, installations, interviews, and screenings.   Berlin Wall 25, a double event (as a preview of ‘Torino incontra Berlino 2015’) to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, with a full day of activities in the San Salvario neighbourhood.   Alfa Romeo MiTo is pleased to confirm in 2014 its title partnership with Club To Club festival, sharing more and more its innovative and cutting-edge spirit, and its “rock” attitude.   Club To Club this year also consolidates its partnership with Red Bull Music Academy: on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th November, the Red Bull Music Academy Stage at Lingotto will feature Ben Ufo b2b Ron Morelli (world debut), Kelela, Millie & Andrea, Fatima Al Qadiri, Jessy Lanza, Ninos Du Brasil, Jacques Greene, Kele, Tiger & Woods, Vessel, Visionist, Vaghe Stelle, Lorenzo Senni.   Furthermore, Alfa MiTo Club To Club and the extraordinary Field Day will team up once again on 7th November after their collaborative London event, co-presenting the main stage of Lingotto at the festival in Torino, featuring the likes of Caribou, Pantha du Prince, Jungle, Talaboman, Evian Christ and many more.   Renewing its partnership with the festival, leading online electronic music magazine Resident Advisor presents the Hiroshima Mon Amour stage on Thursday 6th November.

Alfa Romeo MiTo Club To Club knows how to read trends when they are still underground and intercepts them before they become mass phenomena.”   All the Alfa MiTo Club To Club ticket formulas are now available on clubtoclub.it
