The second edition of the festival, in 2023, had ended with a series of extraordinary jam sessions by Jack Johnson together with the other artists in the line-up, including Glen Hansard, Kurt Vile and the Violators e Wolfmother. Now the names of the third edition of Comfort Festival® which will be staged Sunday 7 July 2024 at the New Ferrara Dockyard. I tickets will be on sale on the official circuits Ticketone e Ticketmaster from 10am on Friday 9 February.

Comfort Festival focuses on the psychophysical wellbeing of the audience and not on the quest for mass numbers. Larassegna was born in 2021 from a very simple idea of the founder of Barley Arts Claudio Trottato use a beautiful and natural location to allow the audience to enjoy a relaxing day of good music.

"I am very grateful to the city of Ferrara, starting with the Mayor Alan Fabbri and the Councillor for Culture Marco Gulinelli, who strongly wanted our 'boutique' festival project to continue in their wonderful city. I am very happy with the artistic cast that we have chosen after months of work and selection that were not always easy. Finally, I believe that the new location will be very much appreciated by the public and the participating artists. We have kept ticket prices down thanks to the collaboration with the Ferrara School of Music and the Municipality of Ferrara, and we truly believe that what we will experience on Sunday 7 July will be special,' he says. Claudio Trotta.

La New Dockyard by Ferrara, a recently redeveloped area, is a particularly evocative place where land and water meet. It is a truly unique location in the heart of the city of Ferrara (UNESCO heritage site) to attend events, spend the evening in company and, especially at sunset, enjoy the sunset reflected in the water. Ferrara is indeed a city whose history is inextricably linked to water: it was born and shaped between the primary branch of the Po and the Po di Volano, a tributary that still reaches the sea and flows into the Sacca di Goro. The Darsena di San Paolo constitutes a cycle-pedestrian stretch along the Po di Volano and is part of the Quartiere Giardino.

This extraordinary setting will host the grand return to the stage after a nine-year hiatus of the The Gaslight Anthemon the only Italian date in summer 2024during which they will present their new album History Books (2023). Preceding the band of Brian Fallon and co. on stage will be Gary Clark Jr., acclaimed blues singer and guitarist, holder of a long list of awards - including several Grammy Awards - for his work, including the extraordinary This Land (2019). In the late afternoon the Rival Sons, a Californian blues rock band that released two albums within a few months of each other during 2023, Darkfighter e Lightbringer. Preceding them will be a line-up particularly beloved by lovers of the New Jersey sound: Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukeswhich is inextricably linked with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band and quoted by Jon Bon Jovi come sua grande fonte di ispirazione. Piccola variazione nella lineup della giornata: i Savana Funk prendono il posto dei The War and Treaty, che purtroppo hanno cancellato le date europee per sopraggiunti impegni negli Stati Uniti. Ad aprire lo spettacolo saranno gli Hardwicke Circusproduced by the legendary Dave Robinson founder of the Stiff Records, and the Lovesick col nuovo album Remember My Name.
