COMFORT FESTIVAL®, manca sempre meno: domenica 7 luglio a Ferrara l’attesissimo ritorno di THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM in Italia e tanto altro!

Manca poco più di un mese al momento in cui i riflettori si accenderanno alla New Ferrara Dockyard for the third edition of Comfort Festival®, il festival che concentrerà tanta buona musica in una location inedita Sunday 7 July 2024.

La New Dockyard by Ferrara, a recently redeveloped area, is a particularly evocative place where land and water meet. It is a truly unique location in the heart of the city of Ferrara (UNESCO heritage site) to attend events, spend the evening in company and, especially at sunset, enjoy the sunset reflected in the water. Ferrara is indeed a city whose history is inextricably linked to water: it was born and shaped between the primary branch of the Po and the Po di Volano, a tributary that still reaches the sea and flows into the Sacca di Goro. The Darsena di San Paolo constitutes a cycle-pedestrian stretch along the Po di Volano and is part of the Quartiere Giardino.

This extraordinary setting will host the grand return to the stage after a nine-year hiatus of the The Gaslight Anthem on the only Italian date in summer 2024during which they will present their new album History Books (2023). Preceding the band of Brian Fallon and co. on stage will be Gary Clark Jr., acclaimed blues singer and guitarist, holder of a long list of awards - including several Grammy Awards - for his work, including the extraordinary This Land (2019). In the late afternoon the Rival Sons, a Californian blues rock band that released two albums within a few months of each other during 2023, Darkfighter e Lightbringer. Preceding them will be a line-up particularly beloved by lovers of the New Jersey sound: Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukeswhich is inextricably linked with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band and quoted by Jon Bon Jovi come sua grande fonte di ispirazione. Piccola variazione nella lineup della giornata: i Savana Funk prendono il posto dei The War and Treaty, che purtroppo hanno cancellato le date europee per sopraggiunti impegni negli Stati Uniti. Ad aprire lo spettacolo saranno gli Hardwicke Circusproduced by the legendary Dave Robinson founder of the Stiff Records, and the Lovesick col nuovo album Remember My Name.
