Music Festivals in Athens

Music Festivals in Athens

Music festivals in Athens have reached an all-time high in the past few decades. They include styles that range from local indie gatherings to hosting many of the most acclaimed artists in the world.

Of the numerous music festivals held annually, in or around the country's capital, here we have listed some of the most successfully popular as according to the status quo. From the "rocking" Rockwave Festival at the massive outdoor Malakassa grounds to the internationally renowned Athens Gay Pride event/parade, they all were born from innovative Greek promoters who have now become an integral part of building the artistic culture of Athens.

Venues for these events have been held on beach-fronts, mountain valleys, nearby islands, stadiums, mega-clubs, concert halls, multiple stages, and more. Athenian festivals support the meeting and the interaction of people harmoniously through music and other events taking place therein.


For instance, many times visitors, artists, and locals will also have the opportunity to not only watch performances, but to participate in workshops, speeches, entertain in small off-stage parties, interact with visual arts, and/or participate in a number of specially selected outdoor activities.
