The best free festival on the Adriatic coast of Italy is back. Beaches Brew returns over June 1 - 5 on the beach at Marina di Ravenna with a line-up to rival many a far more costly event.
Babes In Toyland are this year's veteran act (following last year's appearance by Neutral Milk Hotel), which it self give you an idea of the event's pulling power.
Performances over the course of the event will also come from Mikal Cronin, Thee Oh Sees, much lauded new act Viet Cong, Iceage, Wand and many more.
Travel to and from the event is best completed by car as public transport isn't necessarily as frequent as you may be used to at home. From personal experience you're also best either camping near the venue or staying elsewhere in the immediate vicinity as the town of Ravenna itself is nine miles inland from the beach.
