Born in June 2009, the Piazzola on the Brenta festival of live music - the former Hydrogen Festival - quickly became an event of international resonance, attracting thousands of spectators every year to the charming location of the Camerini Amphitheatre. Situated opposite Villa Contarini, a splendid example of 17th century Venetian villa, the square has hosted over the years great Italian and foreign artists, from Laura Pausini to Robert Plant, from Jovanotti to Massive Attack to Elisa, James Blunt and the Queen, just to name a few. In 2016 the kermesse changed name to Postepay Sound... but the magic of the location and the format of success have not changed! In 2017 the festival will move to Padua, in the area of the ex Foro Boario.

Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox – Sunday, July 2nd
