Why you should go there

Mojotic is a cultural non-profit organization formed in 2005 by the spontaneous initiative of a group of young music fans and their desire to build a new and different musical reality. Having studied in the early years of the artistic direction and live programming of the main clubs and Riviera theaters, the association has dedicated all our energies to the development and growth of its summer festival.

In shortage of places specially dedicated to music, Mojotic undertakes always to reinvent and revitalize existing structures and areas that allow to support the growth and development of the project. In ten years, the volunteers have organized more than 100 events in fifteen different areas including clubs, theaters, bays, beaches, monasteries, bowling alleys, circles, squares, courtyards and even balconies.

 Mojotic Festival was first born in 2009 and established himself as one of the leading music festivals in Liguria. Thanks to the fame of its international guests, the festival has gained visibility at the national level. For the past three years is in fact considered by the magazines one of the indispensable Italian festival. Among the main artists include Tame Impala, St.Vincent, Anna Calvi, Blonde Redhead, The War On Drugs, Conor Oberst, Mark Lanegan, Easy Star All-Stars, Steve Earle and Xavier Rudd.

Mojotic is also the promoter of the innovative event Shhh !, the Silent Disco in the Bay of Silence. In seven years, the event has experienced incredible growth of turnout and gained visibility in the main media channels, from SkyTg to TGCOM, by RAI to the main national newspapers. The last two editions have broken every record surpassing the 8,000 admissions.
