I Days (formerly Independence Days) is a huge music festival set in the heart of Milan, Italy. Each year the festival curators create a knock-out line-up featuring world-famous headliners as well as a smattering of newly discovered gems.
Spend four days in the fashionable city of Milan listening to some of your favourite stars rock out under the Italian sunshine. The June festival is the perfect way to get your summer started in style with thousands flocking to the city for a weekend of fun.
With a history of punk rock roots, the festival has been home to some much-loved legends such as Blink 182, Greenday, Sum 41 and Linkin Park. However, juxtaposed with this are pop favourites like Justin Bieber to really get the dancefloor going!
Don your summer garbs, add some glitter and grab a bottle of water to keep you going and you’ll be all set to dance the night away to some classic anthems!

Thursday, June 10 – System of a Down and Korn
Friday, June 11 – Aerosmith and Rival Sons
Saturday, June 12 – Foo Fighters
Sunday, June 13 – Vasco
I Days has been held in various venues around the city of Milan including Fiera Milano expo centre, Experience Milano and Parco di Monza. These venues host between 40,000-50,000 people per day during the I-Days festival.
As you can imagine, guests pile in thick and fast to reach the front of the stage which will be home to some awesome big names during the weekend of music. If you plan on being near the front, stock up on water as it can be difficult to get in and out of the stage area and beverage vendors are spread out quite far around the perimeter of the venue.
Depending on where the I Days Festival takes place it is likely to be accessible by both public transport and car. Most previous venues have been within a 5-10-minute walk of a metro station or have had a huge car park nearby which is organised for festivalgoers during the weekend. Check out GiroMilano journey planner to help you organise your travel to and from the event.
Trains in and out of Milan are also fairly easy to organise so if you are coming from outside the city you will need to take a train to Milano Centrale to connect to other lines.
There are loads of great regions to stay in Milan and where you choose will of course depend on the I-Days venue location. However, if you want to get ahead on where to stay, have a quick read of our top tips.
Navigli is known as the party district of Milan which is a good choice for those who want to continue dancing long into the night after the festival has finished.
Brera is a cool district which welcomes students looking to chill out in cafes, art galleries and markets – could be the perfect choice if you are just going to one day of the festival and want to enjoy the city for the rest of the weekend.
