FIRENZE ROCKS 2020 HAS BEEN OFFICIALLY CANCELLED.
On the official channels of the event, the organization gave the news we didn’t want to hear. But it was inevitable.
The recent Italian measures taken to stop the spread of COVID-19 suspends all kind of events until the end of July 2020. So does Firenze Rocks. All the shows from 10 to 13 June 2020 won’t take place.
The organization is working to confirm the same line-up for the edition of 2021.
Red Hot Chili Peppers confirmed the show for 16 June 2021. Green Day and Weezer will perform on June 17, and Vasco Rossi on June 18. 2021.
In this case, tickets will be valid for the next edition for the same concerts.
Whoever wishes to get a refund, MUST requires, within 18 June 2020, a voucher of the same value of the ticket previously purchased. Unfortunately, due to Italian law (who incorporates EU guidelines), it won’t be possible to have the money back.

Headline Artists at Firenze Rocks 2020
Vasco Rossi, one of the most known and beloved Italian rock star, opens the edition 2020 of Firenze Rocks. With his tour “Non-Stop Live Festival”, he will also perform in Milan, Rome, and Imola where on 1998 130 thousand people crowded the famous racetrack dedicated to Dino Ferrari.
The American rock band born in 1986 in California will open the festival on Jun 11th for their second date in Italy. They sold more than 70 thousands albums and are one of the most iconic bands of their generation. In 2004 thanks to “American Idiot” the trio of Berkeley won the Grammy Awards as Best Rock Album.
Weezer is a Californian rock band formed in 1992 in Los Angeles. The famous magazine Rolling Stones considers their debut album called “The Blue Album” as one of the 500 best albums in the history of music. Kiss, Nirvana, Pixies, Oasis, Smashing Pumpkins, and Green Day influenced their music. Thanks to the friendship with Bill Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tré Cool, the Weezer will take part in the “Hella Mega Tour” as support acts of Green Day.
The Guns N’s Roses come back to the stage of Firenze Rocks after the amazing show of 2018. During that edition, they also surprised the fans of the festival appearing during the Foo Fighters show for a unique duet under the note of “It’s so easy”.
Red Hot Chili Peppers

How to get to Firenze Rocks Festival
The Visarno Arena is located a little more than two kilometers from the central station of Santa Maria Novella, so it is very close to the historical center. Once in town, the use of public transport is highly recommended, especially the tramvia.
The stops to reach the Visarno Arena are “Cascine” and “Paolo Uccello”, just five minutes walking from the main entrance of the Arena. On the day of the concert, the service runs until 2 am.
From Firenze SMN train station, take the Ataf 17c line buses towards Cascine and get off at the “Cascine” stop. Average journey time 15 minutes. On the day of the concerts, the number and the frequency of all public transport services are increased.
You can directly reach the Visarno Arena by bus from many Italian cities, using the service of Eventinbus. The company organizes buses at a very competitive price.
The Arena is located in the center of Florence, so we strongly recommend using public transport. For those who reach Florence by car, we suggest to park in the surrounding of the Arena, as in the Isolotto area on the other bank of the river (and reach the Arena crossing the pedestrian bridge), or to use the car parks at the last stop the Tramvia “Villa Costanza in Scandicci Area.
You can easily reach Florence by train with Trenitalia or Italo trains during the day, in time for the event. The problem is that, depending on which city you come from, there are no night trains to bring you back home. In this case, you have to plan to stay at least one night in town.
