Rock in Rome is a music festival born in 2002 in the Ippodromo delle Capelle, the horse racing venue of Rome, and since then it’s getting better and better every year. I think that one year this festival will become one of the most important music festivals in Europe.
I would not call it a proper music festival because there aren’t many acts per day but usually there is a headliner plus other important supporting acts. Some people might dislike this but on the other hand all the artists will do a complete set.
This year the schedule is more than amazing : Green Day, the Killers, Smashing Pumpkins, Bruce Springsteen, Arctic Monkeys and many more…. check the site for the complete concerts list and dates. This Festival will start on the 5th of June with Green Day and will end on the 29th of July.
