This summer history will be made, as the very first Istanbul Rock Republic Open Air Festival takes place in July.
The festival will consist of three days of partying and music in one of the world's most exciting cities.
A host of the best bands from all over Turkey and the world will show up to entertain the crowds of music lovers that are expected to show.
Among those expected are Overkiller, Slayer and In Flames, who will be bolstered by the world-renowned Turkish band Alev.
Camping facilities are provided and Istanbul traditionally experiences uninterrupted sun and warm weather during the summer.
Festival-goers should make sure to get out and about and see the sites of Istanbul while they are in town.
The Hagia Sophia is a must-see attraction, with its stunning dome and minarets dominating the skyline of the city.
Less known, but equally as magnificent, is the Chora Church, which features captivating Byzantine murals.
