High tech music in a Roman city
As their website tells us, "roBOt Festival is the most important fruit of labour - but certainly not the only one - in a process that creates continuous intersections with communication processes, the culture industry, innovation, the ability to deal with the contemporary economic and organizational complexities."
Despite that, there's still a chance this could be fun. Set in a selection of Palazzos and other beautiful locations around Bologna, it hosts a vast number of top-quality electronic musicians and DJs, as well as progressive art and film screenings. There's a heavy futuristic, computerised vibe to the festival which contrasts nicely with the ancient beauty of many of the venues. City-based festivals are always fun, and this one is in a very pretty city indeed. Just don't get talking to anyone about the intersections of communication processes, or you might not get home till Christmas.
If Berlusconi asks you to a pool party, we strongly advise you to turn him down. Or at least to double your normal rates.
How do I get there?
You can fly direct to Bologna Airport. From there, it's a 20 minute shuttle ride into town. The festival takes place in venues scattered around the city.
The Early Bird Regular Pass is €50, and allows entrance to all the various venues and performances, except for the opening night at the Teatro Comunale.
