The must-see concerts and festivals in Florence and Tuscany

All the great summer live music dates to mark in your diary

Concerts and festivals bring big names on the music scene to Florence and all of Tuscany. So that you don't risk missing any of the big events scheduled for the coming months, here is a comprehensive summer reminder to jot down in your diary.


  • Firenze Rocks 2024: Avenged Sevenfold and Bob Vylan arrive at the Visarno Arena in Florence on 13 June and Tool, The Struts, dEUS and Night Verses on 15 June.

New location for Ultravox Firenze, the summer space with free admission in the Parco delle Cascine. The address changes but not the formula: Ultravox Firenze confirms itself as the ideal place to meet up, enjoy an author's aperitif or an excellent dinner, while shows and concerts parade on stage.
