Ypsi & Love

Ypsigrock is the best festival on the planet.

Mogwai

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

The Times

Ypsigrock excelled once again, it must now be seen as one of the most tasteful and considered ‘boutique’ festivals in Europe, if not the world.

Gigwise

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.

CLASH

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)

You would be hard-pressed to find a festival more beautiful.

The Independent

Is this Europe’s most picturesque festival? Almost certainly, yes.

*Nel poster ufficiale di questa edizione non è presente il nome “Pere Ubu”, in quanto la band sostituì gli Spiritualized (che invece compaiono sul poster, ma non si esibirono) per un forfait comunicato ad una settimana dall’inizio del festival, per questioni di salute riguardanti il frontman Jason Pierce.
Di seguito il comunicato ufficiale della band:

“Spiritualized Cancel Ypsigrock Festival & Standon Calling Festival. For the first time in a career spanning twenty one years Spiritualized regrettably have to cancel the two upcoming shows in Sicily and the Standon Calling Festival. J. Spaceman has been undergoing a course of medical treatment, which is near completion, and have left us with no choice but to cancel following advice from his medical team. We have done everything possible to try and do these shows but it recently became apparent that Jason would not be able to perform. We apologise to everyone who is affected and hope they realise that cancellation was the only unavoidable option given the medical circumstances.”
