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.

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.
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!

You will be able to tune-up your guitar, discuss about modifications, upgrades and custom constructions while looking and testing
their own products, including their line of hand-wired pickups.
This brand new amplifiers producers will showcase their entire line of products, some of them taking inspiration from
surf music classics like the Showman or the Bassman. You will be free to test the equipment, talk about that, discuss it
with the technicians and eventually... order it!

The crew of Sound Of The Surf is coming again to the festival to film the event. This is amazing! They came on 2008
to produce some exclusive footage for this movie that is going to be the first production dedicated to the history of surf music.
Lots of legends are involved and many bands from everywhere, we are surely very proud of this collaboration!
