HitWeek Announces First Part of the Lineup of the 2023 Edition
The itinerant festival dedicated to Italian music in the world will take place in Miami and Los Angeles from Oct. 13
Coma_Cose and Gio Evan are the first names announced for the lineup of HitWeek 2023. The itinerant festival dedicated to Italian music in the world will take place in October (13-18). Two cities of the United States are involved: Miami (Miami Beach Bandshell) and Los Angeles (Whisky a Go Go).
As usual, the live shows will be accompanied by several collateral events. There will be a special lesson at Florida International University and UCLA, a panel focussed on the Italian music industry in Los Angeles, and opening and closing parties in Miami and Los Angeles.
Started in 2022, the contest HitWeek Talent will be back for this year’s edition. It will take place from May 22 to July 20. The eight finalists will get the opportunity to perform at the Italian summer festival Rock in Roma. Two final winners will then open the concerts of the main acts in Miami and Los Angeles.
The program of HitWeek 2023 and all the information about the contest are available on the official website of the festival.
“Thanks to FIMI and ICE [the Italian association of record companies and the Italian trade agency respectively, ed.], HitWeek continues its mission to bring Italian music abroad, specifically to the United States,” said Francesco Del Maro, coordinator of the festival. “Its platform is open to both big artists and newcomers, who get the opportunity to perform in the US. That makes us particularly proud.”
HitWeek 2023 is supported by ICE – Italian Trade Agency and FIMI (Federazione Industria Musicale Italiana). Its official partners are the Consul General of Miami, the Consul General of Los Angeles, the Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Italian Ministry of Enterprises and Made In Italy, Rock in Roma.
