Home Festival, a 9-year-long dream

Events - published on 20 June 2018


Press Release: Home Festival

Home Festival came from the dream of the founder Amedeo Lombardi to create a festival intended as a great home of music and arts, made of friendship, emotions and joie de vivre. A dream that every
year since 2010 has become reality in Treviso, in Veneto, in the form of one of the most important events in the music festival scene, awarded three times at the Onstage Awards as “Best Festival”,
a recognition that confirms it reputation at a national and European level. The reason behind its success? Precisely, the desire to invest in a “simple” dream and to believe in it completely; a
passion capable of involving hundreds of people, businesses and associations to be able to achieve it. Because a festival is not just a main stage surrounded by a set of other smaller stages on
which stellar bands perform. A festival is a home where you can spend a holiday at; where in the afternoon you can wander around at the market or discover art installations; take part in readings,
debates and during the happy hour you go to the fun fair or play a soccer game. Then, in the evening, you can have dinner, drink something and dance. A festival is a home where you sleep in a tent
and where you grow culturally and artistically, a total experience that allows you to get to know the city that hosts it and make new friends.

In a word, it is life.

These are the premises on which Home Festival is based, the only show in Italy able to compare to the European festivals such as Sziget or Tomorrowland, an event that is growing a few kilometers
from Venice and brings to Veneto young people from all over Europe. An event that generates induced economic impact in many industries thanks to the support of local institutions and entrepreneurs,
it is a center of international tourist attraction due to its proximity to the Dolomites and the Prosecco hills.

To describe this ultimate experience, we need to divide it into a few segments, but you have to imagine them all united: a unique and magical alchemy, where the sweat and joy of those who love
music merge with a staff of over 500 volunteers, unified by the work of a company that every day of the year is committed to making those first days of September unforgettable.

Let’s just have a look at the attendees of the past editions: 27,000 in 2010, 55,000 in 2011, 85,000 in 2012, 70,000 in 2014, 80,000 in 2015, 88,000 in 2016, number confirmed in 2017. Thanks to big
names, of course: on the main stage, among others, played Duran Duran, The Wailers, Editors, The Prodigy, Martin Garrix, Steve Angello, 2Cellos, Franz Ferdinand, Paul Kalkbrenner, Francesco De
Gregori, Interpol, Subsonica, Elio e Le Storie Tese, Fedez, Piero Pelù , J-Ax, Simple Plan and The Bloody Beetroots. But above all thanks to a logistics managed with expertise and a home that is
spread over an area of ​​about 100,000m2 with camping facilities and can be reached by train, bus and airplane.

These are just some of the memories of Home Festival: about 200 shows, including live music, DJ sets, book presentations and cultural debates, 20,000m2 of shopping facilities, 20 food booths, a
handmade market, proposals from 30 different associations and art exhibitions.

The entertainment has been translated from 2010 to today in about a 1000 shows (to which we get also through the “Road to Home Festival” that takes place during the whole year) for an average of
over 50 hours on the days of HF and a total of over 300 bands presented in the last 5 editions.

And from August 29th to September 2nd 2018 the dream comes true again, bigger and stronger than ever.
