Sicily's alternative gem

Ypsigrock Festival is an alternative music festival in Castelbuono, Sicily. Now in its third decade, the festival has a strong reputation for bringing impressive lineups of underground and left-field talent to the Italian island. 

A huge part of Ypsigrock's appeal comes from the impressive locations used to host performances, with historic courtyards, cloisters and piazzas transformed into festival stages, hosting exciting new artists alongside established acts from alternative music's recent history.
