Val Veny - Mont Blanc
JULY 28-29, 2017
TWO DAYS OF ROCK IN A BREATHTAKING VALLEY AT THE FOOT OF MONT BLANC
Rockin'1000 officially announces the next step of a project that has gained a vast popularity worldwide for the past two years. The world's largest Rock Band, featuring over 1000 musicians, will perform on the roof of Europe from July 28 to July 29 in Val Veny, a breathtaking location right off the city of Courmayeur. That’s the place where ROCKIN'100 SUMMER CAMP will take place, a village where music, amplifiers and watts will be the protagonist.
After the 2015 debut, with a tribute to Foo Fighters (who replied with a concert in the city of Cesena - IT) whose video became viral on the net in a few hours (more than 36 millions views all over the world), after 2016’s That’s Live, the concert that marked the birth of the Band, with a sold out in a stadium (14000 audience), and the production of That’s Live – The Biggest Rock Band on Earth live in Cesena 2016, the live album distributed by Sony Music Italy, the journey continues at high altitude.
Rockin’1000 leaves the Romagna region to get to an unspoiled valley in Courmayeur, at the foot of the Mont Blanc massif, where a village packed with Rock initiatives and attractions will be built: an articulate schedule which will reach its peak in two different shows of the Thousand – the first one on Friday night, the latter in broad daylight on Saturday. For the first time, the audience will get the chance to attend also the rehearsals, thus getting a close-up view on how a thousand musicians arrange the execution of some special songs – object of the official video – realised in a unique environment.
“It’s going to be two days - full immersion in Nature and in the music that we love the most.” says Rockin’1000 General Manager Fabio Zaffagnini.“We want to attract musicians and enthusiasts from all over Europe and even further, make them feel the power of Rockin’1000: a crazy experience, that touches deep inside. Through Summer Camp, we want Rockin’1000 to confirm itself as a music ritual, capable of tearing down any kind of barriers. We want it to be fun, we want it to be unique, something to remember”.
The gathering will take place in an environment that is wild but easily reachable, thanks to the services provided by the municipality of Courmayeur.
“We liked their initiative since the very beginning, it is beautiful and engaging. - says Courmayeur Major Fabrizia Derriard - Thanks to Rockin’1000, we think we can convey the concept that mountains are a place where to meet and share, open to everybody. Through music, and its inclusive essence, we want to raise awareness among the general public of the wild and unspoiled beauty of our Val Veny, a unique and multifaceted place. Mountains are everybody’s heritage, and everybody is free to experience it in different ways, as a sportsman, a musician, a mountaineer o a simple observer”.
To crown this upcoming adventure, an unprecedented format, that will make the experience even more engaging than before, closing the gap between musicians and audience, thanks to a Rock village that will take shape in a dream place.
The idea behind it is to melt musicians and audiences all together, make it impossible to separate the one from the other, thanks to a program full of activities, and a setting up of many common areas, where to camp, play and dance around a bonfire so huge it's destined to become unforgettable.
The complete program will be communicated in detail in the next weeks
