From the Acoustic Guitar Meeting to the Acoustic Guitar Village in Cremona with a preview in Sarzana!

The most important event in Italy dedicated to the acoustic guitar and one of the most recognised and respected in the international scene embarks on new efforts and proposals…

Dear friends

We hope that your Christmas went well and the New Year brings you and your family a period of happiness, even in these difficult times, with the hope of seeing an improvement in the not so distant future.

On our part, after the success of the 18th edition of the Acoustic Guitar Meeting in Sarzana in May 2015, and the Acoustic Guitar Village in conjunction with Cremona Mondomusica in September 2015, a moment of reflection was necessary due to new exciting projects for the future, to continue to improve and increase our leadership in promoting the acoustic guitar in Italy and overseas, with great attention to the world of guitar making , high quality imports and the increase of the artistic side, both in the number of visitors and the development of the techniques used. Our goal is undoubtedly one of growth, creating further exchanges with the artistic and commercial aspects of this wonderful universe that represents acoustic guitar music.

In light of this, and finding in the city of Cremona and in the international exhibition of Mondomusica a perfect setting for further development of the exhibition area of our event, we felt it necessary to collaborate with the exhibition centre of Cremona, in conjunction with Cremona Mondomusica 2016, September 30 -1-2 October. All efforts will be made to ensure the presence of guitar-makers, import companies and manufacturers, producers and importers of accessories for the acoustic guitar, turning more and more to an international level, to build together a great event confirming the expectations and the appreciation that we have earned over time.

The Acoustic Guitar Meeting will become the Acoustic Guitar Village, and the whole format, with the trade-show for guitar lutherie and import, historical exhibitions, evening and day concerts, guitar events, Bluegrass Meeting, workshops for guitar making and guitar playing, competition for young emerging artists and many other activities will take place in conjunction with Cremona Mondomusica, the largest international exhibition for hand-crafted musical instruments, scheduled at the Cremona Exhibition Centre from September 30th to October 2nd 2016.

The AGV will have its own large exhibition area, where luthiers and international companies are expected, where we will celebrate acoustic music and the construction processes of the acoustic guitar, classical and modern.

Sarzana, the city that for the last 18 years saw the exponential growth of the event, will again be the setting for the awaited edition in May 2016, which at the same time will be a preview of the AGV in Cremona in September, which will be a novelty.

In fact, from 27th to 29th May 2016, the new Acoustic Guitar Village “Street Music Edition” will take place in the historical town and the Fortress Firmafede of Sarzana.

Focusing fully on live music, many squares, streets, bars and clubs of the city, the Fortress Firmafede stage and other specific sites will be involved in a non stop music festival, which will see performances by many artists and acoustic ensembles.

The full programme of events will available soon on our web-site at
