PIT

The AC/DC concert in Imola will include a large pit area in order to limit the physical pressure on the first thousands of people who will be present under the stage. For a precise, shared and usual choice, AC/DC and Barley Arts have not foreseen any surcharge that regulates economically the access of people to the area, differently from what legitimately established by other artists and promoters. Entry to the Pit therefore does not require any payment other than the purchase of the concert ticket. Access will be granted to those who show up before the others, there will be no lottery or other selective system except for the classic 'first come, first served'. Two points will be set up in an out-of-the-way position to avoid pressure on entry and exit, where you can collect your bracelet (non-transferable), which will be handed out at the first opportunity to leave the pit. We always invite the public to be our allies and collaborate with the service staff to ensure fairness, correctness, common sense, joy and smiles to live a great day of rock'n'roll all together.

PRODUCTION

900 people, more than 180 trucks, 600 reception staff, 350 catering staff. All control personnel will be recognisable by their official shirt and concert pass.
