Festival

Rock'n Coke is a member of the European Festivals Association. The festival is organized by the Turkish concert organizer Pozitif. At the end of every summer, the Hezarfen Airfield is used as a venue for a two-day chain of concerts, with both national and international performers featured.

Although mainly rock-oriented, Rock'n Coke also hosts other music genres. While the main stage is generally reserved for rock and its subgenres, the DJ Arena (now called Burn Stage, following the sponsorship) is reserved for styles such as house music.

In 2005, the festival grounds were large enough to support two stages, a mini-amusement park, two large food areas, a shopping area, several sponsor attractions, 400 outhouses and a large camp site for people with two-day tickets.

In 2008 & 2010, no festival was held due to decision of making it every two years.

2011's festival was held on 16-17 July at the airfield again.

The 2013 festival will be held later than of 2011 on 6-8 September again at the Hezarfen Airfield.

Sziget Festival, Glastonbury, Roskilde, T in THE PARK, Lowlands, Rock'n Rio are famous examples of this mass event.

Kanal D and Dream TV are the major media sponsors of the organization.

It takes 2 and a half days for the attenders to build their tents and settle.
