“Brazil has always had a Rock soul and a strong inclination to played music; this is probably the reason why since our birth, we have received so many demonstrations of esteem and so many invitations to play in this country.” – declares Fabio Zaffagnini – Founder of Rockin’1000 – “We waited for years before crossing the Atlantic, we needed to find the right partner, and we believe Fever is the ideal one to establish ourselves more and more as a global band. In a world that seems to want to nurture divisions and draw boundaries, we increasingly feel it is our mission to bring people together, in our own way, through music, through Rock.”
For musicians, applications are open at www.rockin1000.com, and recruitment is open to all musicians from around the world who are already registered on the platform and to new musicians who come from the Brazilian territory.

Rockin’1000 – the Biggest Rock Band on Earth is a project created to invite the Foo Fighters to Cesena, Italy. Thanks to Learn to Fly – a viral video that now counts over 60 million views – today, the band has learned to fly by performing in stadiums around the world with concerts in which 1,000 musicians play in unison. The Community, which today consists of more than 30,000 musicians, enjoys a unique experience that should be experienced at least once in a lifetime, even as a spectator. The project has to its credit an album, a film and several concerts in Italy, France, Germany, the USA, and Korea conveying a message of inclusion and togetherness.

Rockin’1000 – The Biggest Rock Band on Earth
In 2015, a marine geologist passionate about rock who had never organized an event before got help from his friends, who were insiders in the world of entertainment, to achieve the impossible. Fabio Zaffagnini’s goal: to gather 1000 musicians in a meadow to play “Learn to Fly” by the Foo Fighters in unison to convince the famous American group to perform in his city, Cesena. The video of the performance immediately went viral (today it has over 60 million views) and the Foo Fighters responded, accepting the invitation and adding a date to their tour. From this unexpected success, a format was born: Rockin’1000, the Biggest Rock Band on Earth. The band has performed many concerts in stadiums and special locations, created an album produced with Sony Music Italy and the outbound film We are The Thousand – directed by Anita Rivaroli, which tells the story of the band’s genesis and is currently nominated in some of the most important international film festivals. From an original idea by Fabio Zaffagnini, created with founders Claudia Spadoni, Martina Pieri, Mariagrazia Canu and “Cisko” Ridolfi, today Rockin’1000 is an award-winning company that carries out international projects and is invited to collaborate with partners around the world.
