The Florence Youth Festival (FOG) was founded in Florence in 1999 to give young musicians from all over the world the opportunity to be part of a unique musical experience in the beautiful region of Tuscany, Italy.
The festival’s main venue is the Loggia dei Lanzi – an astonishing space widely recognized as cultural heritage- on Piazza della Signoria, one of the main squares in Florence city center.
The entire edition takes place between the Tuscan and Umbria regions in cities such as Lucca, San Gimignano, Montecatini Terme, Prato, Perugia and Assisi. FOG is held during the month of July and consists of a total of 50-75 concerts given by 15-20 orchestras.
Usually each orchestra performs three or four concerts. So far we count over 300 orchestras from all over the world that have participated in our festival.
The festival team follows all the arrangements in Italy for the participating orchestras, including accommodation, logistic, sightseeing and educational activities such as workshops and master classes.
In addition to running the yearly festival, FOG also organizes concert tours around Italy to promote musical exchange within the Italian territory. These concert tours are tailor-made based on the experience and requests of each orchestra. They represent a great opportunity for international orchestras and choirs that want to perform in some of the most beautiful venues and cities.
