Maratona Rock is a free entrance Rock & Heavy Metal festival, taking place every year in Santhià (VC), North Italy.
The festival was born in 2009, to commemorate the memory of Bea (Beatrice Bedon), a teenager from Santhià who left in 2008 in a tragic motorbike crash. The festival is organized by Bea’s parents and a large group of their friends to remember Bea through Heavy Metal, the music she loved.
Year after year Maratona Rock has grown up: started as a one day concert of local bands, during the last two years it became a two days open air festival, featuring bands like Folkstone and Mpire of Evil as headliners.
Maratona Rock is a 100% free event, financed by sponsors and with the services offered during the festival, like catering & merchandising.
Maratona Rock is connected with the Association “xBea” (forBea), a no profit organization that promotes many charity events focused to the young.The Association xBea has promoted in October 2012 the MaratonaRock for Finale Emilia, a special event to help Italian people from Emilia Romagna, a region recently strongly struck by earthquake.
We are now running the organization the MaratonaRock 2013 edition. Help us to make this beneficial live show bigger and stronger, in memory of Bea. Like this page on Facebook page and keep the metal flame alive!
