Arezzo, Tuscany - 12-15 july
Four days rich of events at the football stadium in Arezzo and in the most beautiful places of the historic core of this charming medieval town of Tuscany. Arezzo Wave Love Festival will take place in Arezzo again, the town where it was established in 1987, 12 to 15 July, with a great bill, almost all for free. New proposals from Europe and the best Italian musicians, from the newest artists to the well-known ones.

Over 100 events during the 26th Arezzo Wave. After five years spent in other Italian towns (Florence, Livorno, Lecce), the festival is coming back to the town where it was born with a shower of music, but not only: theatre, literature, comics, dance, art, digital art and an area designed for children.
The slogan of Arezzo Wave Love Festival 2012 is “New agreements against the crisis”.

Morning and afternoon music is the protagonist in the central Colle del Pionta with free admission Wake up stage (in the morning) and Psycho stage (in the afternoon). The best of the Italian independent music and the best artists “discovered” by Arezzo Wave during an year of selections in every Italian region thanks to the long and meticulous work of the Arezzo Wave Network which every year launches new bands who will find the walk of fame.
