Firenze Rocks is the largest music festival in Italy. Last year it attracted over 500,000 visitors at its 3rd edition with a superb line-up including The Smashing Pumpkins, The Cure, Ed Sheeran and Snow Patrol.

The head act for the 12th will be announced shortly. The festival is held at the Visarno Arena (Ippodromo delle Cascine) just west of the city centre next to the Arno river.

Tuscany and the Florence area are dotted with great campings. Here’s an overview
We recommend the following ones:
Camping Firenze - Human Company (8.7 score / 3300 Reviews), just on the other side of the city centre, 8km from the festival grounds. Florence is a “Mobike” town, so enough sharing bikes to take you from the camping to the concerts. The camping has a splendid swimming pool area and rents deluxe cottages with a view on the river Arno.
Camping Village Panoramico Fiesole (8.0 score / 494 Reviews) is located is the pretty village of Fiesole in the hilly countryside just east of the Florence city centre. The camping offers a nice pool and rents quirky chalets and modern mobile homes.
Camping Norcenni Girasole Village - Human Company (8.9 score / 2130 Reviews) is one of the top campings in Italy. It is located in the hills just outside Figline Valdarno, 30km southeast of Florence (Sting is a famous inhabitant of Figline). High end facilities, pool, great rentals.
