You will be able to see and touch with your hands some of the new VW models available, get info and prices from the on site VW staff glad to assist you for any inquiry. Also enjoy the Asahi lounge inside the festival area and try the #1 Japanese beer.




The FORTEZZA VECCHIA in Livorno is a historical fortress completed on 1546. For the past several years the area has been arranged to be used for events of any kind and finally this year we have the opportunity to move the SJSF inside this fabulous structure right on the sea and next to the Port of Livorno. Web link: Wikipedia (Italian)




The area called "Quadratura dei Pisani" is totally dedicated to the bars: surely more beer than you can imagine and you can enjoy the late night dj set (until 4am friday and saturday).

On the other side of the fortress, next to the concerts area, there is a full restautant and a fast food facility. It will be very busy, but you will be able to eventually reserve your table. Anyway we are downtown Livorno and you can find tons of food places in any direction.

Being downtown gives you the chance to choose between several hotels at walking distance. Our suggestion now is for you to look online at your favorite sources and book whatever you like and fits your pocket.

When you look for distances keep in mind that the Fortezza Vecchia is located at the Port of Livorno.



This year we work with Hotel Granduca which is the closest to the venue and one of the nicest hotels in town. It is a 4 stars hotel with all comforts, but very good prices. Thanks to the Direction for the collaboration with Surfer Joe Music to offer you these discounted rates.

Use this link to BOOK directly:
Italiano English




Whether you come by car, flight or train you just need to reach the Port or ask directly for the Fortezza Vecchia. You cannot miss it!

Please notice that the area is surrounded by parking lots: some are free, some not. In case you have to pay for parking the rates in Livorno are pretty cheap, generally € 0.50 per hour or you can pay a daily fee.

The parking lot of the Fortezza Vecchia is strictly for workers at the festival and there is security personnel at the door ready to kick your ass or destroy your vehicle with TNT :)






We will be offering soon the new t-shirts for the 2011 Festival. Original design from Fred Lammers and several colors to choose.

One great news is about the Bear's Surfer Joe t-shirts series: the basic models you have loved in the Big Wednesday movie specially customized for Surfer Joe!

So just wait a few more days and the stuff will be available for pre-sale.




Do not hesitate and participate as exhibitor/vendor. Very good conditions this year and cheaper rates! If you sell records, vintage stuff, memorabilia, clothing & cool items contact us:
