The selected artist(s) will receive a 2000 Euro subsidy directly from Sonicbids*, who will also cover the costs of ground transportation and production directly with Italia Wave. Confirmed performers for 2009 include: Kraftwerk, Placebo, Aphex Twin, Bandabardò and Ska-P.

Performers at last 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.

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.

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

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