Scene from the 2007 Italia Wave Festival Scene from the 2007 Italia Wave Festival This year's important Italia Wave Festival will take place here in Livorno from 16th to 19th July. In previous years this annual festival of music and culture has taken place in Arezzo and in Florence, but this year the city of Livorno has been chosen as the venue because of its lively summer seaside atmosphere.

Concert venues will include Livorno's football stadium, the Fortezza Vecchia, and the Rotonda in Ardenza, and artists performing will include British bands The Chemical Brothers and The Verve, as well as many Italian bands taking part in the Italia Wave Band competition for which there have been as many as 2000 entries this year.

Further information about the event, as well as details of all the concerts and cultural events organised for the festival will be published over the coming weeks on as well as here on Livorno Now.
