Hit Week – the world's only music festival showcasing Italy's current scene on the global stage — returns to North America with it's strongest line up to date.  A greatly expanded edition of the annual event touches down in New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Toronto between September 7 and October 30th.  Headliners announced include iconoclastic Italian singer, songwriter and composer Franco Battiato and Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino, Italy's top act on the international world music circuit.  Renowned DJ, producer and musician Nicola Conte will bring his DJ set Stateside.  Additionally, 2013 Sanremo Festival winner Marco Mengoni makes his US debut appearance and critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Erica Mou rejoins the Hit Week fold after headlining the festival's inaugural event in Brazil earlier this year.

The core of Hit Week's fifth tour of the North American continent is a coast to coast run of concerts taking place between October 4th – 12th.  Highlights include Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino and Nicola Conte at the Hollywood ArtsPark (Miami) on October 5th with a redux of the bill on October 8th at New York City's Highline Ballroom.  Franco Battiato takes over the Highline stage onOctober 9th for the first in a pair of rare Transatlantic performances before heading to Canada and Toronto's Phoenix Concert Theatre on October 10th.  Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino then offers a California concert double header on October 11th at UCLA and October 12th at Taste of Italy Los Angeles.
