Published on: 6 June 2024

In Rimini, there is not a single day without extraordinary things to do and see in 2024, a programme of culture, music, newcomers, confirmations, dance, festivals, guided tours, cinema, and a thousand sports opportunities featuring top Italian and international athletes.

From the most eagerly awaited international event, the historic arrival of the Tour de France, with Rimini at the centre of the "Grand Depart" for the historic arrival of the first stage on 29 June, to the 10 evening appointments with some of the most important artists and intellectuals on the national scene coming together for the Biglietti agli Amici festival. From the great musical confirmations such as the Notte Rosa and the concerts on the beach at the Rimini Beach Arena, to the absolute novelty of the RDS Summer Festival tour, which lands in Piazzale Fellini bringing with it the best-loved protagonists on the music scene, starting with Angelina Mango. From the generational idol and exporter of Romanita’ around the world, Zerocalcare comes to Rimini for the Mare di libri festival, to the summer celebrations of the 70th anniversary of Romagna Mia, a pillar in the history of Italian music and Romagna, an emblem of the union between music and dance. There will also be the new August event that will bring the magic of great dance to Piazza Malatesta with Dancing in the Dark: seven days of dance and music that will transform the outdoor area of the Fellini Museum into a dream location, kicking off on 3 August with the international show by Momix, the group of acrobats-dancers-mime actors-transformists, in a marvellous play of dance, lights, colours. The Winx 20th anniversary party, the return of the theatre festival Le Città Visibili and of Balamondo World Music Festival, the prestigious batons of the Sagra Musicale Malatestiana, and the contemporary music of Percuotere la Mente opening this year on the notes of Ludovico Einaudi. And not forgetting Cartoon Club with "Riminicomix" and the colourful "Cosplay Convention", the 45th edition of the Rimini Meeting, the festival for fans of youtubers, tiktokers, content creators and influencers RiminiWow, the return of P.Assaggi di Vino in July and the Festa de borg in September. 
The Biennale del Disegno continues until 28 July with its fourth edition entitled: "Back to the journey, from the Grand Tour to fantasy” and its 12 exhibitions comprising 1,000 drawings, while the Festival del Mondo Antico, a series of conferences, meetings, round tables, book presentations, guided tours and shows where the past can be read to understand the present and build the future more mindfully, will move to October.
The second edition of 'Sandrimini' returns from 21 to 23 June at 'Rimini Beach Court', the playground of Parco del Mare. This is the 3 VS 3 tournament with Carlton Myers returning to the court as an exceptional testimonial. From 19 to 21 July, basketball will be the star of the Moab Court Experience at the new, colourful playground in Piazzale Kennedy. In September, it will be the turn of the World Artistic Roller Skating Championships, which has some of the greatest world champions in the history of this discipline coming from Italy. The event will be a part of the World Skate Games 2024, with events being held in four regions.

A long calendar of events that you can browse through in the booklet available below, with an invitation to sail the sea of the thousands of summer proposals, as does the rhinoceros inspired by E la Nave va by Fellini, which is the protagonist of the graphics designed for the 2024 edition by the Leonardo Sonnoli studio.
