Rock-A is a festival of interdependence that has been organized for six years by a volunteer crew. This year’s festival will take place August 3 to 5, and will feature performances by 25 bands and musicians and various workshop trainings. The festival takes place at the Acar camping area, in the town of Foça in Izmir province, and will welcome everyone with a libertarian and equal vision for the world.
Festival calls young souls
The sixth Rock-A Festival invites young people to come with their tents, sleeping bags and their best wishes. Interdependence, sharing and fun abound for participants at the three-day festival, with workshops to join in and the sea and music to enjoy. People coming from all over Turkey will have a chance to purge the negative effects of daily problems like environmental degradation and all forms of violence.
The food available at the festival will not include any animals raised on industrial farms. Last year, Rock-A’s motto was “Freedom! For everyone… For everything!” This year’s motto and theme, “The System Feeds on You,” is intended to address energy consumption.

Dünya, Badoboombox, Bandista, Bang, Deli Gömleği, Entu, Enzo Ikah, Eski Bando, Flört, Mavi Sakal, Meriva, Nayah Sound System, Necropolis, Rainbow Box, Red House, Salia Balia Band, Simurg, Sky Crawlers, Takatuka Band, Ters Açı, and Yavuzcan Çetin & Durmayan Orkestra.
