The Balena (Wale) Festival is the result of a cooperation between different local music realities (Aluha, Cane, Pioggia Rossa Dischi, Greenfog), with the participation of Luca Pietronave as artistic director (one of the promoters od the Mojotic Festival in Sestri Levante).

The main aim is to bring the world of independent music to the city, from the 24th to the 27th of April, making these four days full of fun and of innovative musical elements.

The event is part of the 'Genova Città dei Festival' exhibition, organized in collaboration with the Municipality of Genoa.
