Italy Rocks: three music festivals in Florence, Milan and Rome

The Italian summer this year will be full of rock: three major music festivals that will on the stages of three of the most beautiful Italian cities: Florence, Milan and Rome.

To start is the Firenze Rocks with its appointment at the Visarno Arena. This year is the fourth edition and the proposal continues to amaze and attract visitors from all over the world.
An event not to be missed and eagerly awaited throughout Europe for its Italian and international guests. This year important names such as WHO and Maroon 5 recorded the peak of visitors who reached the Tuscan capital to attend their shows.

For the occasion, the FeelFlorence app was launched which will allow the public to be informed about all the city's services - and receive a gadget.

Firenze Rocks is also an opportunity to discover the city. Visit the Iris Garden, the symbolic flower of the city.

And if you want to leave your car at home, there are many green alternatives: Florence is becoming more and more cycle-friendly (we discussed it here).

I-Days in Milan is back after the success of previous years, a great event for indie music at the Ippodromo Snai in Milan. A month of pure musical fun for all tastes and genres: from Florence + The Machine to The Weeknd, but also Capo Plaza and Paolo Nutini.

Florence + The Machine will open the festival on June 22 for the only Italian date of their tour. The last to perform on July 15th will be the Arctic Monkeys. The other equally spectacular evenings with Rosalía, Travis Scott, Liam Gallagher and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The 2023 edition promises to be unsurpassed!

The Rock in Roma program stages all musical genres: from rock to pop, from urban to rap. Most successful Italian and international artists: Paul Weller, Coez, Lazza, Salmo and Rancore just to name a few.
