Live music and the world of live clubs will be at the center of the fifth edition - entitled Music Rocks Here - to once again bring attention back to one of the sectors most affected by the pandemic crisis which, after months of stoppage and continuous political debates , he is finally trying to restart and find his audience again.
It is no coincidence that Apollo Milano - a popular club in the heart of the Navigli and a reference point for the musical world - this year will become the new home of Milan Music Week, hosting various events including live performances, meetings and panels. A concrete signal for the resumption of musical events in the Milanese city and a positive message in support of the entire sector. Starting from the Metropolitan City of Milan, capital of music and Italian city with the highest number of live clubs, the goal is in fact to underline the ever stronger need to return to live the experience and emotion of a performance. live by returning the music to its places, stopped for too long.

The image of the Milan Music Week, conceived and created by Daniele Amedeo, is a 3D hand, an icon of the rock hand gesture par excellence, which "re-emerges" illuminated by a cutting light, lively and nocturnal at the same time. Music Rocks Here is the title that echoes those of the previous editions, to underline this year the driving role of an event increasingly at the center of the scene, strong and direct, which is committed to music in a necessarily operational and restart phase. . At the center of the promotional video that will accompany all the communication is a sequence of hands that perform actions related to the music played and reproduced in its spaces and in the different worlds.
