Ortigia Sound System is set to make its return to Italy this year, and we’re excited to announce that we’ll be hosting our very own stage at the event.

Artists set to take the reins of the Crack Magazine stage include Kamaal Williams – a key figure of London’s jazz renaissance – viral internet sensation Jimothy Lacoste, label head Mafalda and the Argentinian-born Spanish star Nathy Peluso.

This year will mark the festival’s fifth edition, set to be held at Sicily’s Ortigia island on 25-29 July. The opening event will take place at Syracuse Gulfwill. Previously announced artists for the four-day event include former Crack cover star Omar Souleyman, Zaltan, Suzanne Kraft, Hot Chip, Young Marco, DJ Seinfeld, Call Super and more.
