Ypsigrock is the best festival on the planet.


If you missed out on Glasto, then you should try it.

The Times

This intimate festival set up gets a 10 for scenery. And the line-up stands out as one of the best line-ups for a small festival on the planet.


The best festival you’ll only find if you leave the beaten track of the European circuit behind.

The 405

There’s a mysterious charm to this Sicilian event that is nigh on impossible to put into words.


Un appuntamento che ha saputo diventare meta turistica, momento di aggregazione e di cultura, e soprattutto uno stato mentale.

Stefano Cuzzocrea (Journalist and unforgettable Friend)

Ypsigrock’s beautiful location, married to excellent production and hospitality resulted in the festival being one of the most memorable weekends of my life.

Andy Inglis (5000 Mgmt, UK)

Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Castelbuono – a town which feels to be carved from the very mountains that surround it – it’s a four-day music festival like no other.
