The Byblos International Festival program was unveiled Tuesday to reveal the strong lineup of international talent scheduled to perform. Running from early July to early August, the coastal town's jam-packed seven-event festival promises everything from jazz to Lebanese pop of yesteryear, from reggae princeling Julian Marley to Teutonic alt-rockers Milky Chance and Sir Elton John. In what Byblos is touting as the biggest music event of 2017, the British superstar will perform a concert in the pre-Christmas season, Dec. 10, at the Forum de Beyrouth. Before Elton John, though, there is a broad summer season program to be enjoyed.Lebanese-born Spanish violinist Ara Malikian will take possession of the stage on July 27 with "The Incredible Story of Violin," a widely promoted show that, as the festival programmers point out, mingles the music of Vivaldi with that of Radiohead and Led Zeppelin.
