AZKENA ROCK FESTIVAL

The Azkena Rock Festival, known as ARF by its loyal fans, is the quintessential rock n’ roll festival, a must for those who love rock in all its senses. ‘Burning since 2002,’ ARF has been making rock n’ roll history for two decades by featuring some of the genre’s biggest international stars.

The festival has featured classics from the likes of Bob Dylan, Kiss, Iggy & The Stooges, Ozzy Osbourne, Sex Pistols, Gregg Allman, Brian Setzer, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, New York Dolls, The Pogues and MC5, to some of the most relevant contemporary artists and bands like Chris Isaak, Slash, Pearl Jam, The Black Crowes, Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Queens of the Stone Age, Juliette Lewis and Wolfmother. If we combined the names of all the bands that have graced the Mendizabala and La Virgen Blanca stages, we would have a crystal-clear picture of the grandeur of the festival and the history of rock over the last 50 years.

Azkena Rock Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary next year. On such a milestone anniversary, ARF could not have a better headliner than Patti Smith. Alongside her, Brian Wilson, The Offspring, Emmylou Harris, Social Distortion, Suzi Quatro. and many more bands will gather again in Mendizabala, a place where the bands and audience alike feel at home.
