Rockin’1000

The Rockin’1000 is a group of rock musicians  (described as the “biggest band in the world”) from mainly Italy and a few from other countries such as Canada, Mexico, England, Austria, Bosnia and Germany.

The home of the organization is in Cesena in Italy, originally assembled in July 2015 as a stunt to get the Foo Fighters to visit their hometown, which finally happened on November 2015.

They were originally organized in a crowdfunding effort by Fabio Zaffagnini.
Their initial performance in 2015 was made under the direction of Marco Sabiu.

They played an 18-song concert on July 24th, 2016 in Cesena, Italy in the Orogel stadium in front of an audience of around 15,000 people.

L’idea è nata circa un anno fa, quando il cesenate Fabio Zaffagnini ha lanciato un appello su Facebook con lo scopo di riportare in Romagna i Foo Fighters, dopo 18 anni di assenza (l’ultima volta risale al 1997, quando si esibirono al Vidia Club di Cesena), con l’obiettivo di coinvolgere nell’evento più persone possibile nell’esecuzione di una delle canzoni più famose della band: Learn To Fly.

L’evento, intitolato Rockin’ 1000, è stato organizzato raccogliendo i fondi tramite il crowdfunding, aprendo un sito per reclutare un tale numero di musicisti così da entrare anche nel Guinness dei Primati, e registrare una video-richiesta da inviare ai Foo Fighters, chiedendogli di suonare nella città romagnola.

Il concerto si è svolto il 26 luglio 2015 all’Ippodromo di Cesena. Ben 1000 musicisti hanno dato la propria disponibilità per eseguire Learn to fly, per la precisione 250 batteristi, 250 cantanti, 350 chitarristi e 150 bassisti! A dirigere i 1000 musitica c’era Marco Sabiu, uno dei più giovani maestri d’orchestra italiani (già direttore d’orchestra con Luciano Ligabue, Take That e Kylie Minogue).
