Italia Wave is a week long event featuring concerts by the best established stars as well as up-and-coming artists from the international rock scene. This year’s festival will take place from July 16 through July 19 in a new location - Livorno, Tuscany.

Over 140 artists will perform on 8 stages. This year, Italia Wave has reserved a performance slot exclusively for a non-Italian Sonicbids artist. The artist will receive a $2000 USD subsidy directly from Sonicbids, who will also cover the costs of ground transportation and production directly with Italia Wave.

Confirmed performers for this year's Italia Wave festival include: The Verve, Chemical Brothers, Gnarls Barkley, Elio e le Storie Tese, The Wombats, Pivot, Segent Garcia and Sud Sound System & Bag a riddim band. Last year’s attendance was over 160,000 people.

The Italia Wave Love Festival (formerly Arezzo Wave Love Festival) started back in 1987. Arezzo Wave Love Festival is curated and organized by the Arezzo Wave Italy Foundation. In recent years, Arezzo Wave grew from being a rock festival to a more cultural event, presenting new cultural sections and new stages: literature, movies, theatre, cabaret, comics, dance, contemporary art and figurative expositions.

This year's event will feature 6 stages: The Main stage, Elettrowave, Psycho Stage, Wave Up Stage, Cult Wave and Surf and Sport.

Continuing a 21 year tradition, most of the Italia Wave events are free to the public with entrance to morning and afternoon events.

Please note: Submission prices listed are in US Dollars.
