The first edition of the Lucca Summer Festival was held in 1998, when Bob Dylan, George Benson and Joe Cocker performed on stage.

The former Balilla Field is located near the historical center of Lucca, between Viale Giosuè Carducci and the sixteenth-century walls of the city. Starting with the post-war period, it was used as a sports field where the first local soccer championships were held. For several years, it has been used as a park.
The closest bus stop is Carducci 1, located near the field, on the bus Lines 5, 6, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, LAM BLU, LAM ROSSA and LAM VERDE. The Lucca railway station is located about 500 meters away.
