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.

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

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.

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

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

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

Camping with your friends or alone at Ypsicamping is an exciting experience.

At Ypsicamping you can create good neighborly relations, having fun while respecting the spaces and rules. You can bring your own tent and come to camp at Ypsicamping, after buying an Ypsicamping Pass.
