The Stages[edit]

Arena Parco Nord is the location of the main stage - a grass field with a curved banking giving an amphitheatre shape.

TENDA ESTRAGON is the tent which houses the second stage. The festival takes place as part of Festa de l'Unità - a popular outdoor festival full of restaurants, beer tents, and entertainment. Although the two stages are not connected, you are allowed to move between the two, enabling festival goers to enjoy all the attractions of the Festa de l'Unità. Traditionally the festival has had a punk theme, but in recent years, more mainstream acts have played, such as Franz Ferdinand, Editors, Maxïmo Park, and The Bravery.
