The Rockin' 1000 is a group of rock musicians from mainly Italy and a few from other countries such as Canada, Mexico, England, Belgium Spain, Austria, Croatia, Bosnia, USA and Germany. As the name indicates, over a thousand musicians play and sing simultaneously at their concerts. The home of the organization is in Cesena in Italy, originally assembled in July 2015 as a stunt to get the Foo Fighters to visit their hometown, which finally happened on November 3rd 2015.[1][2]

They are now an established presence, and have made subsequent appearances. They have been described as the "biggest band in the world."[3][4]

They were originally organized in a crowdfunding effort by Fabio Zaffagnini. Their initial performance in 2015 was made under the direction of Marco Sabiu.[5]

They played an 18-song concert on July 24th, 2016, in Cesena, Italy in the Orogel stadium in front of an audience of around 15,000 people.
