LongLake Experience

Compared to the other LongLake festivals, which are short and intense, Experience keeps on going for the entire month. With its mix of different kinds of events and attractive locations, Experience transforms the way of experiencing Lugano’s lakefront, making it exciting for residents and welcoming for guests and tourists. The public are guided towards the different events on offer through themed sections, and include festivals created historically within LongLake (Classica, Dance, Family and Urban Art), as well as many others through the cyclone of enthusiasm resulting from the collaboration with different organisers.

The new LongLake Experience, created with this edition of the Festival, is the result of the long journey embarked upon in previous editions of the LongLake Festival, making it a permanent fixture. The various sections offer lots of different kinds of events, just like the experiences proposed in the various villages of a Beautiful, Mediterranean and Maritime Lugano, which start to rev up the engines of the Festival already from the month of June, extending it even into August, with the same spirit and the same desire to enjoy life that the LongLake Festival symbolises and aspires to be.
