Perugia is perhaps best known internationally for (other than its baci chocolates) the Umbria Jazz Festival, which begins every year on the second Friday in July. A local favorite as far as music, though, is the Onde Rock festival, a three-day rock-in of the best of central Italy’s homegrown rock bands. “Not too heavy, not to light” seems to be the leitmotif of the weekend. The venue is the Casilini fair ground, near Panicale. Interested? Do a little Google research or ask any staff member how to get there with public transport. Onde Rock 2010 takes place on June 18th, 19th, and 20th.
