Now, the organizers of Suoni Per Il Popolo have revealed the preliminary details for their ninth year running.
The 2010 edition of the fest will run from June 7 to 23, and will include acts from across the map, both geographically and musically. Confirmed artists so far include the No-Neck Blues Band, minimal soundscape genius William Basinki, art rockers Oneida, free-jazz providers the Matthew Shipp Trio, long-running noise rockers Hair Police and garage punks Reigning Sound.
That's just a small sample of the numerous exciting acts already confirmed for the fest, with more to come. For a complete list of all those artists already confirmed, and for further updates and ticket availability, head here.
