The Baalbeck International Festival has been supporting Lebanese musical creations since 1957. The Festival's "Lebanese Nights" have given the opportunity to the Rahbani Brothers, Toufic El-Bacha, Zaki Nassif, Romeo Lahoud, Walid Gholmieh, Philemon Wehbe, Abdel-Halim Caracalla and others, to create their major works that have survived in our collective memory. 

The eternal voices of Feyrouz, Sabah, Wadih El-Safi, Nasri Shamseddine, Samir Yazbek, Issam Rajji, Melhem Barakat, Elie Choueiry, Assi Hellani and many others have resonated in the Baalbeck Temples.

For the sixtieth anniversary of the "Lebanese Nights", the Baalbeck International Festival will allow the younger generation of artists to showcase their talent, by performing songs of the past as well as their contemporary repertoire, in a fabulous and colorful show of songs and dances.
