The creation of the musical program is based on several criteria. On the one hand, there is the desire to give voice to artists from the region, as well as more generally to express the diversity of styles while remaining on a rhythm of danceable music. Music groups from neighboring countries such as Germany, Italy and France are also invited. At the end of the concerts, the evenings continue with jam sessions and DJ sets.

Alternating with musical performances will be artistic performances based on movement, sound, light and color.

It is not only music that makes up the artistic program of Openair Cavaglia. Theatrical performances, wellness activities and workshops of various kinds diversify the offer of the three-day event by integrating an audience of different ages.
