But make sure you don’t miss the Guns n’ Roses at Firenzerocks! What about enjoying the concert of the legendary Iron Maiden in Firenze? And since you're there what about the once-in-a-lifetime chance to be in the crowd of the fantastic live performance by Ozzy Osbourne in Florence? Well then, for this and much much more you have to organize a nice trip in Tuscany in June! Tickets for Firenze Rocks 2018 literally fly off the shelves, so waste no time, have a look at the juicy line up and get cracking! Oh, it is also worth noting that all the concerts of the Rock Festival in Italy 2018 take place at the Visarno Arena, a huge green area not far from the historic center of the beautiful Tuscan capital: what better to combine with the adrenaline of rock concerts than some equally exciting excursions around the wonderful ‘cradle of the Renaissance’. Let’s cut the chatter and start with the explosive names of the most anticipated 2018 Firenze Rocks concerts.

The great rock festival in Florence 2018 will literally start with a bang: the Foo Fighters in Firenze are among the most anticipated guests.

Naturally, tickets for the Foo Fighters in Florence are among the most sought after. Good luck! The opening night will also include the Volbeat in Firenze, a Danish band that blends the sounds of metal with the rockabilly singing style. The long night of rock will continue right up to 2 am! On Friday evening at the same time there will also be a performance by the Baroness in Firenze, the American sludge/heavy metal band that has been together since 2003, and The Pink Slips synth-pop group from Los Angeles.


  • Thursday June 15th, from 20.00 - Arena del Visarno

Even the second evening of the Florence Rock 2018 will start with a trump card: the Guns n' Roses in Florence will set fire to the stage of Visarno in front of a wild audience. The legendary hard rock band led by the charismatic Axl Roses, selling 100 million records worldwide and included by Rolling Stone in the list of the 100 best artists, will attract loads of fans to Florence. The Guns n’ Roses in Florence live promise an energetic and overwhelming performance as in their style. The evening will continue with The Kills, an indie rock group from the United States, and with Wolf Alice, alternative rock band from the UK.

The metal mood will continue thanks to the concert by Helloween at Firenze Rocks, a German band currently on their Pumpkins United World Tour, boasting Jonathan Davis, considered to be one of the best metal singers. Florence Rocks, now one of the most important Italian rock festivals of 2018, will also host the performance of Shinedown in Firenze, in the large green areas of Parco delle Cascine.

Rock Florence 2018 with reach its end with Sunday evening. But not before having given you yet another gem, one of the most anticipated Florence 2018 rock events. What is it? We are talking about the live performance of the histrionic Ozzy Osbourne in Florence! The hardcore singer of the Black Sabbath, who continued his career as a soloist, is considered to be the 'Godfather of Heavy Metal' but also the 'prince of darkness' and the 'madman'. In short, the concert of the charismatic and excessive Ozzy Osbourne at Florence Rocks will definitely not bore you! The last night of the 2018 rock festival in Tuscany will continue with Avenged Sevenfold, another pillar of Metal music that will offer its audience a new version of the famous 'The Stage'. The Judas Priest in Florence will also perform on tour with their new album called 'Firepower'. Finally, the Tremonti will rise on the Visarno stage: this is the band of Mark Tremonti, the guitarist of the Alter Age and before that of the Creed.
