BardonecchiArp Festival is one of the most relevant European festivals dedicated to Celtic Harp (and not only) and it’s part of the program of Scenario Montagna.

It takes place in Bardonecchia, the “Pearl of the Alps”, among beautiful mountains and woods. Bardonecchia is in the Susa  Valley, 90 kilometers away from Turin easily accessible by train and car.

The Festival offers an International Harp Masterclass with the best Artists and teachers worldwide, for student of all levels.

Moreover, it offers concerts, outdoor experiences, special events, exhibitions, meetings and workshops open to the public in a nice and fun environment (if you took part in our thrilling night jam sessions after the concerts, you know what I mean).

Over the years we partnered with some of the main world events dedicated to Harp:  Rencontres internationales de harpes celtiques di Dinan (France), Harpe en Avesnois (France), Harfentreffen (Germany), Rio Harp Festival (Brazil).


For those who want to learn or improve in Harp, BardonecchiArp Festival offers an International Masterclass with the most relevant Artists and teachers worldwide: each of them provide their own musical history and harp style. The Masterclass is a unique experience, a glance over the many worlds Harp reveals: Celtic music tradition as well as experimentations and contaminations.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, in 2021 the Masterclass will be held online, in live streaming. Not only lessons, but meetings and interviews: “Meet the Harpist” is half a confidential interview and half a concert, to know every secret of our Artists and their careers. Looking forward to see each other again in presence in 2022!

We provide a special in-presence-module of the Masterclass. It will be held in the Garden of the Hive (L’Alveare), a colored and peaceful house right in the Bardonecchia center: The Hive is also a hostel with kitchen and those who want can book their accommodation there.
