The 16th Cyprus Rialto World Music Festival, organised by Rialto Theatre, will take place outdoors this coming July and artists living in Cyprus are invited to submit proposals for live performances. This year’s programme will focus on supporting artistic production locally and will be implemented in a way that does not endanger the health of artists, spectators and theatre staff.
The main mission of the festival’s 16th edition is to develop optimism and a climate of return to artistic production, supporting Cypriot musicians who have been hit by the pandemic. The festival will provide the opportunity for musicians and bands to perform World Music and will contribute to the continuation of the relationship that has developed between the audience and this kind of music.
Only artists based in Cyprus will be invited, while the possibility of organising parallel events will also be examined, which will focus on the interaction of Cypriot music creators both with each other and with professionals from abroad.
The invitation to submit proposals is addressed to professional musicians, composers and bands. And proposals will be accepted until May 23. Those interested can obtain the application form and the terms of participation from the websites www.cyprusrialtoworldmusic.com and www.rialto.com.cy. Applications will be evaluated by a committee and the management of the Rialto Theatre, and the selected bands will be informed by June 10.
