Asia-Europe Cultural Festival: 2024 Edition | Save the date

The 6th Edition of Asia-Europe Cultural Festival will take place on 30 August – 7 September in Rovereto and Trento, Italy in partnership with Oriente Occidente. Presented by ASEF since 2018, the Festival offers a diverse range of programmes and celebrates the artistic diversity of Asia and Europe and promotes dialogue and exchange amongst artists from the two regions. 

This year’s Festival emulates a "festival in a festival" format, with events coinciding with the Oriente Occidente Dance Festival. The programme will allow audiences to experience events spanning dance, video art, multidisciplinary art installation and music by artists from China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, the Philippines, Singapore, United Kingdom and Viet Nam. 

Alongside the main event which will be held for the first time in Italy, the Festival activities include a curtain raiser in June in collaboration with Temenggong Artists-in-Residence and a series of closing performances in September, both to be held in Singapore. 

These showcasing events increase awareness about the richness of Asian and European cultures among the governments, arts communities and general public of both regions. Through these, we also foster artistic collaborations and ignite connections between the two continents known for their diversity and creativity.  

Be in the loop for the full #AECFest2024 programme which will be released on 13 June 2024. 

The 2024 Asia-Europe Cultural Festival is organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), funded by the European Union, in partnership with Oriente Occidente.
