The summer concert season kicked off with the Italian bluesman Zucchero holding two concerts for an audience of 40,000 each. A few days later, the "Italia Loves Romagna" special benefit concert raised 3 million Euros for victims of the devastating floods that impacted the Emilia-Romagna region. With a large sponsorship provided by RCF and other brands, 100% of ticket sales were donated to the cause. The lineup was truly impressive, featuring some of the biggest names in Italian music including Laura Pausini, Salmo, Elodie, Gianni Morandi, Blanco, Elisa, Emma, Giorgia, Luciano Ligabue, Madame, Fiorella Mannoia, Zucchero, Negramaro, Max Pezzali, Tananai, Andrea Bocelli, and the duo Irama & Rkomi.
The RCF Arena also hosted other major concerts throughout the summer, including performances for 100,000 fans by Harry Styles, 80,000 by Pinguini Tattici Nucleari, and the 'La Festa' event featuring Daniele Silvestri, Manuel Agnelli, and comedian Giuseppe Giacobazzi.
