DATA: 13 - 16 June 2019
PLACE: Florence, Italy
The Rock lives in Florence. This, we could say, after admiring a truly sumptuous edition in which they performed artists such as Guns N'Roses, Iron Maiden, Foo Fighters and Ozzy. And only a year ago, System Of A Down, Placebo, Aerosmith. Axl Rose and Slah have attracted the attention of half of Italy. And, of course, the performances by Dave Grohl and his partners, and the legendary Iron Maiden did not go unnoticed.
Reading the line-up of this Florence Rocks 2019, a bit 'of bitter taste remains. Above all because the pop turn of the festival is evident. Sure, Tool, Dream Theater and Smashing Pumpkins on the same stage, the day of the debut, it really seems an opportunity not to be missed. A few more doubts remain in the movement of headliners and artists in the following days.
In any case, Florence Rocks remains an unmissable appointment of the Italian summer music season. A program, and a rich program, divided into 4 days. Location, will still be the Visarno Arena, at the Parco delle Cascine in Florence.
Great international artists and excellent organization, are the strengths of the music festival. An event to be experienced.
