Ypsigrock Festival returns this August for its 20th edition at its stunning location: the imposing Castle of Castelbuono, in Sicily, Italy.
The charming venue takes you back in time, inside the medieval town Castelbuono, nestled between the Madonie Mountains and the sea on Sicily’s north coast.
Established in 1997, Ypsigrock Festival has earned a reputation as one of the most suggestive European boutique festivals.
Over the years Ypsigrock Festival has been bringing the best in musical talent to Sicily including Editors, Belle and Sebastian, Primal  Scream, Mogwai, Future Islands, Notwist, Alt-J, Of Montreal, The Drums, Stephen Malkmus, Local Natives, Shout Out Louds, Fuck  Buttons, Pere  Ubu, Motorpsycho, Dinosaur  Jr, Gang Of  Four,  Caribou, Kula Shaker, dEUS, Jon Spencer, Bonnie  ‘Prince’ Billy, Blonde Redhead, Mount Kimbie, Apparat, Jon Hopkins, Erol Alkan, Patrick Wolf, Twin Shadow, Django Django, The Field, These New Puritans and many others.
Ypsigrock Festival is an enchanted pocket sized event turned out to be the benchmark for addicted indie-rock lovers. Ypsigrock is a choice of quality and it differs, cause it mixes up several charming aspects of a music festival with an exclusive location.
The main stage, The Castello Stage, is set in a truly breathtaking square, a natural amphitheater shaded by the impressive Castle of Castelbuono and the lovely town is crowded by thousands of festivalgoers. Piazza San Francesco encloses the wonderful eighteenth-century cloister that embraces the Ypsi & Love Stage, the second stage of the Festival.
The equipped camping area “Ypsicamping” where is set The Cuzzocrea Stage is located inside Madonie National Park, a spectacular natural area in the middle of the green woods that surround Castelbuono. Ypsicamping is a fantastic place where it’s possible to join the Festival in a friendly and absolutely relaxed atmosphere.
Getting to Castelbuono means discovering the inner heart of the most unknown Sicily: an unexpected journey through artistic, natural and cultural beauty, essential statements of the genuine Made in Italy.
Ypsigrock Festival is also the best chance for a great vacation destination in the summer, completely lost among several Mediterranean’s undiscovered jewels: Cefalù’s marvelous sands, Pollina’s rocky shores with transparent sea and Madonie’s incredible peaks, all from the extraordinary panoramic position of Castelbuono, affording a magnificent view of a land rich in charm, decorated with a thousand colours and enriched by delicious cuisine.
Every year Ypsigrock Festival brings in Sicily, always for the first time ever, a wonderful selection of international artists, in a timeless and incredible spot.
Ypsigrock Festival 2016 confirms, once again, to be the only one Italian wriggle in the sweeping list of international boutique festivals.
It’s difficult to find a better place for people with a steady cultural, natural and musical attitude! Ypsigrock Festival is the centre of art.
