Rizzottos Reclaim Independence

Missing last year because the right acts weren’t available, Indipendente Eventi e Produzioni is bringing its Independent Days Festival back to Bologna’s Parco Nord on September 2nd.

"We wanted to keep the quality up to the usual level and decided to miss a year rather than let it slip," said Indipendente marketing manager Gianpietro Giachery.

As if to demonstrate that standards won’t be allowed to drop, the usually two-day festival will run for only one day. The bill includes Nine Inch Nails, Tool, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, and Maximo Park.

Indipendente directors Corrado and Sandro Rizzotto will spend the summer concentrating on touring acts. They already have Amy Winehouse, Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, Bright Eyes, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Damien Rice, Kaiser Chiefs, LCD Soundsystem, Mogwai, Paolo Nutini, and Queens of The Stone Age in the diary.
