MILAN ROCKS – One of the most anticipated and cool festivals to bring a ‘breath of fresh air’ in the Italian summer return this summer.
This year, two appointments have been confirmed for the festival produced by Live Nation Italia: Friday 30th and Saturday 31st August 2019 at MIND Milano Innovation District AREA EXPO. The area where the concerts will take place is the same one that had hosted the first edition last year.
The artists who will perform this year will be as always of the highest level: announced, for the first day on Friday, August 30th are FLORENCE + THE MACHINE and THE 1975.
2018 was a very important year for FLORENCE + THE MACHINE, one of the most talented and influential British artists in the world. Their fourth album was released, “High As Hope”, for which it was included in the nominations for BRITS Award which will take place this year in the category “Album of the Year” and “British Female Solo Album”.
With a unique and unmistakable voice, Florence began a spectacular tour in the UK that has recorded two sold out dates at the O2 Arena in London and before arriving in Milan Rocks will perform in Italy with two sold-out shows on March 17th at Casalecchio di Reno (Unipol Arena) and March 18th in Turin (Palalpitour).
To go on stage before FLORENCE + THE MACHINE, will be THE 1975.
The band is fresh to release their latest album, “A BRIEF INQUIRY INTO ONLINE RELATIONSHIPS”, released last November 30th. The album got very positive reviews from the English press: Q Magazine called them “the band of the decade”, NME considers the album “a turning point in music”, the Sunday Times elected him to “best album of the week” “And The Independent stated that it is” the best record of the band ever made”.
The Manchester group consists of the vocalist (and rhythm guitar) Matthew “Matty” Healy, guitarist Adam Hann, bassist Ross MacDonald and drummer George Daniel.
Milan Rocks will officially start on August 30th at MIND Milan Innovation District Area EXPO after the great success of the first edition, which brought on stage artists such as THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS, THE NATIONAL and IMAGINE DRAGONS. The latter had even beaten the record for the highest number of paying viewers of their entire career (over 60,000) at the festival.
