Ypsigrock Festival is a pocket sized event turned out to be the benchmark for addicted indie-rock lovers that mixes  up several charming aspects of a music festival with beautiful location and its stunning stages located all around the picturesque Sicilian mountain town of Castelbuono – including the main stage inside of a breathtaking square, an amphitheater of the impressive Castle of Castelbuono or the 18th century Piazza San Francesco where the festival’s second stage called Ypsi & Love takes place.

Visiting Ypsigrock besides awesome music and art program is “discovering the inner heart of the mostly unknown Sicily: an unexpected journey through artistic, natural and cultural beauty; a great vacation destination in the summer, completely lost among  the several  Mediterranean undiscovered  jewels:  Cefalù’s  marvelous  sands,  Pollina’s  rocky  shores with crystal clear sea and Madonie’s  incredible  peaks…”

Over the years, some of the best world’s artists performed at Ypsigrock including Editors, Mogwai, Daughter,   Savages, Moderat, Battles, Metronomy, Primal Scream, Future Islands, Caribou, Belle & Sebastian…
