Newsflash: Mega-Concert this summer in Venice!!
"NEWS. On Thursday, 8 February, the tenth edition of the Heineken Jammin' Festival, the most important rock music festival in Italy, was officially announced in Milan. This year, the event will take place from 14 to 17 June at S. Giuliano Park in Mestre, facing Venice's northern lagoon. The programme will include famous rockers such as Iron Maiden, Pearl Jam, Aerosmith, Smashing Pumpkins, as well as Italian performer Vasco Rossi. Attendance is expected to reach 250,000 people from the whole of Europe. "With this kind of event," Mayor Cacciari said, "we wish to show that the notion that Venice is a dying city of no interest to young people is completely false. The festival is not only important musically but culturally, as well." (via Buongiorno Venezia)
