Hit Week, active since 2009, is considered the most important festival dedicated exclusively to the diffusion of the Italian music system in the world.
During the fifteen previous editions held in the United States, South America, Asia and Europe, all the major Italian artists performed in some of the most iconic places in the world. Thanks in particular to the "business oriented" activities of the festival, they were able to say their career and spread their catalog outside of Italy.
One of the missions of Hit Week has always been to create opportunities even for non-established artists who, thanks to a virtuous system focused on involving the music industry of the individual countries where the event takes place, and to the simultaneous presence of artists considered "big" have managed to achieve a visibility otherwise difficult to obtain abroad and to affirm their career and spread their catalog in those territories.
The sixteenth edition of the festival is scheduled between 13 and 18 October 2023 in the United States in the cities of Miami and Los Angeles.
