Arezzo Wave Love Festival is one of the largest Italian music festivals. Taking place in July, it features mostly rock, electronic, and indie music, and draws a younger crowd compared to festivals like Umbria Jazz. Despite its name, the festival has often changed its location year by year, and has taken place in Florence, Livorno, and Lecce. Recently it has returned to its home town of Arezzo.
