The Santa Lucia International Festival, which started on the 11th of October, has reaffirmed its position as one of the largest cultural events in Latin America with a 27-day program scheduled to broadcast performances by over 300 artists on all of its social media platforms for a global reach while bringing the arts to the neighborhoods in Monterrey, Mexico.
“We know the importance of culture, that is why in this 2020 edition, in the global context of health, sanitary and security measures, we had to find a way to continue the festival and face the pandemic head-on,” said Lorenia Canavati von Borstel, President of the Festival Internacional de Santa Lucía. “The Festival will go on with the use of virtual technology, digital and electronic media, as well as with mobile stages and pop-up shows in support of our artists, to show the world what can be done in Mexico.”
Taking place until November 29th, festival producers are not taking health precautions lightly and will be publishing line-ups on Sundays for the following week in alliance with the current health situation in the city and the state’s health indicators.
Most of the events will not have onsite audience participation and most of the performances will be done either digitally or pre-recorded with some performances taking place inside an innovative traveling stage that will take artists to neighborhoods around Monterrey and exposing locals to the festivals offering.
In its thirteenth edition, the FISL will feature 27 days of the festival for 7 weeks under the slogans of hope, unity, gratitude, pride, love, inspiration, and joy. With a line-up of 85 cultural and artistic events in 32 locations, more than 340 artists, 4 concerts in a new modality, 2 exhibitions: “The arts of Monterrey back to the source” and 5 illuminated buildings “lights of hope”.
