McArthurGlen fashion festival attracts 500,000 shoppers
Aug '13
This year's Summer Music Festival at McArthurGlen's five Italian Designer Outlets attracted a staggering half a million fashion and music lovers, with 13 free evening concerts over the last two weeks of July.

The world-class line-up was headlined by internationally renowned Lisa Stansfield, famous for such popular '80s and '90s tracks as All Around the World and The Real Thing, and Caro Emerald, whose chart-topping single, Tangled Up, is one of this summer's music sensations.

Also taking to the stage were James McCartney, the singer songwriter son of Beatle Paul McCartney; established Italian stars such as Simona Molinari; US jazz legend Chick Corea; Chiara Galiazzo, the winner of the latest edition of X-Factor in Italy; and Tania Maria, the queen of Brazilian music.

McArthurGlen's Summer Music Festival took place at all five of McArthurGlen's Designer Outlets in Italy: La Reggia Designer Outlet near Naples, McArthurGlen Castel Romano near Rome, McArthurGlen Noventa di Piave near Venice, Barberino Designer Outlet near Florence, and Serravalle Designer Outlet near Milan, where the Summer Jazz Festival was this year in its 9th edition.

Eric Decouvelaere, Managing Director, McArthurGlen, says "This year's Summer Music Festival has been bigger and better than ever before. The link between fashion and music has always existed.

"For us, it's also about creating a fun and exciting atmosphere at our centres, and there is no better way to do this than our annual Summer Music Festival in Italy. What we wanted to do this year was to bring well-known, established artists with the best of the young emerging talent."
