This edition will be a renewed opportunity offered to Tunisian artists, 50% of the evenings, to present their projects in the different artistic expressions.
Thus, the evenings will be spread over three different spaces representing a natural geographical and cultural extension of the International Festival of Carthage. It is the ancient Theater of Carthage, the museum of Carthage and the Acropolium of Carthage. As for the mornings of Carthage, they will take place at the Agora.


The workshops dedicated to young people, children and all the enthusiasts of the arts between cinema, theater and music will be held in the CineVog area.

The opening night is reserved for the Chadi Garfi show “Fen Tounes” (Art of Tunisia). This review of 60 years of Tunisian music will be marked by the participation of young and old and Kacem Kefi, Soulef, Asma Ben Ahmed and Nour Qamar.

The closing ceremony will be dedicated to “Bharati 2 in the palace of illusions“, a magic story from India, through unpublished choreographies and oriental sounds in an explosion of rhythms and colors.
