The History of Azkena Rock Festival
The Azkena Rock Festival (often abbreviated as ARF) is a festival of rock which is held in Vitoria (Alava), organised by the concert promoter Last Tour International.
With several issues to its credit has become one of the most important festivals in Spain thanks to his interest in bringing bands of rock isolated from the public mainstream but known at the underground, with well-known headliners, even “legendary.” It is possible to attend all scheduled concerts because there are two stages and the concerts do not overlap in time.
The edition of 2006 sold more than 44,000 tickets, the most successful in the history of festival thanks to the presence of Pearl Jam. Some of the bands that have played have been Iggy & The Stooges, Wilco, Social Distortion, Tool, Queens of the Stone Age, Ray Davies, Bad Religion, Sex Pistols, Deep Purple, The Black Crowes or Fun Lovin Criminals.
