The Azkena Rock Festival (often abbreviated ARF) is a rock festival that has been held every year since 2002 in Vitoria, Alava, Spain. It was organized by the concert promoter Last Tour International.
With several editions to its credit, it has become one of the most important festivals in Spain thanks to its interest in bringing rock bands far removed from the public, but known underground, along with well known headliners, even "legendary".
It is possible to attend all the programmed concerts, as there are two stages and the concerts do not overlap in time.
Some of the bands that have gone through this festival have been for example Iggy & The Stooges, Alice Cooper, Scorpions, ZZ Top, Social Distortion, Tool, Queens of the Stone Age, Ray Davies, Bad Religion, Sex Pistols, Deep Purple, The Black Crowes, Hanoi Rocks o Fun Lovin' Criminals, The Kiss..and many more.
