So, we now know the line-up for the Surfer Joe Summer Festival 2013, which runs from Friday June 21st to Sunday June 23rd.
This is probably the world’s foremost festival of instrumental surf music and organiser Lorenzo Valdambrini once again deserves credit for putting together a stellar bill for the event, with fifteen bands over the three nights, including a rare European opportunity to see legendary Australian surf band The Atlantics, with The Apemen, The Bradipos IV, Surfer Joe & his Boss Combo and Dave Arnson's second-wave veterans, the Insect Surfers, also looking especially appealing.
The venue is once again the Terraaza Mascagni, beside Surfer Joe’s Diner in Livorno, Italy and this year there will be three stages, a main stage on the Tearrazza, a second stage in the garden of the Diner and a third stage inside the Diner itself, with Lorenzo promising non-stop live music.
