It's cool to share a bill with other  artists.

The crowds are amazing, our fans have been

great and they keep coming. So that's good.”

Home won this important recognition for the third time... another demonstration that it's actually possible to organize a multi-day event like this in Italy and to offer different genres of  music to a very heterogeneous audience, musical lovers and critics. An absolute success that confirms the importance of Home Festival on an international scale.


The first day healiner will be our amazing Duran Duran with a fantastic show that represent their 40 years career. This band has spent four decades evolving and experimenting, selling over 100 million records, placing more than twenty songs on the Billboard Hot 100 and thirty in the UK Top 40. Their critically acclaimed 2015 release, Paper Gods, it's the band's 14th album. This show is part of the last leg of their World Tour that makes only three stops in the old continet [the other two are August 29th Salata Open Air in Zagreb,  and September 3rd at the Electric Picnic Festival in Laois, Ireland]

At the entrance there are metal detectors but also the most modern X-ray machines. There are hundreds of security personnel, in all the areas where the events will be held.

“We still have the love for the tour.

We have no reason to keep doing this other than we love doing it”


“We want to make sure the shows are great”

Roger Taylor
