Azkena Rock Festival is a two day rock extravaganza in the north of Spain. It encompasses every niche of the genre, including everything from classic rock to heavy metal and punk.
Having played host to a range of rock royalty, the festival continues to draw in crowds from across Europe and beyond. This is in part due to the consistently major headliners but also thanks to an array of newer alternative talent that this festival welcomes with open arms. The artists that play here are prepared to shape the future of the genre.
Last year welcome The Who and Primal Scream amongst others, so its safe to say that this year looks set to include some stunning performances!
