The events not to be missed in June

Festivals, concerts and lots of live shows are back


With the arrival of summer, festivals also make a return to Milano with lots of concerts and an exciting line-up of great outdoor live events.

Milano è Viva is the perfect go-to programme for all the season’s shows featuring pop, electronic and classical music, theatre and dance.


June is also the month in which the city’s streets and piazzas are buzzing with colours and sounds thanks to Milano Pride that presents an extensive programme of events celebrating LGBTQ+ culture, and culminating in the Pride Parade on June 24, a mega party that traverses the city centre.

Lots of live events on the Milano è Viva platform

The exciting season of outdoor shows begins in June with Milano è Viva: pop, electronic and classical music concerts plus theatre and dance performances. Free tickets or reduced entry fees.


The Castello Sforzesco will be the designated venue and, every evening from June 21st to September 10th, it will host the Milano è Viva - Estate al Castello festival in the Cortile delle Armi.
