In 2016, Fuzz Live Music Club celebrated 10 years of creative presence in Athens' concert events. Its activities spread throughout Greece via events organized by Fuzz Productions in areas directly connected to Fuzz such as Fix Factory of Sound (Thessaloniki), Factory of Sound Ioannina (Ioannina), and Kookoo Live Music Bar (Athena).
With the completion of a decade, the group felt that, in spite of the difficult economic times in Greece, it was time to take another step in their efforts - always in relation to the object they knew and loved, namely music - presenting a new festival to the city of Athens. Thus Release Athens was born!
Release accomplished bringing a breath of fresh air to the musical reality of the country and to evolve, in just one year, into an institution of real interest, hoping in the coming years to bring us even more names that are at the top of the world stage. Offering thrills to Greek audiences that were rather tired of repetitive schlock and were looking for the variety and multi-colorfulness of famous festivals abroad.
Release Athens had begun, and continues, to move forward with the aim of delivering something quintessential to the public. Both in terms of the stars involved - with high-quality characteristics and a lot of bold choices - and anything that has to do with the areas of the organization and production, in general.
"We hope that the pleasant surprise of our summer, by "releasing Athens" from the darkness and the misery that unfortunately has been imposed on us everywhere through the power of good music, culture and true interactivity that should characterize such a summer organization." - Fuzz Productions
