European Music Day returns for its 24th year and invites the public to take part in a five-day celebration that spans a total of 33 cities and regions in Greece.
From 20th to 24th June, the Greek network for the European Music Day organises over 100 events and concerts in 68 unique locations, including archaeological and cultural sites, as well as public spaces, squares, parks and bars.
Featuring over 230 artists, music groups, choirs, symphony orchestras, and philharmonic orchestras, European Music Day continues to shape a polyphonic mosaic of rhythms, sounds, and ultimately experiences that resonate throughout Greece.
From traditional songs and dances in the Valaora village in Agrafa to electronic music in the Castle of Mytilene and Paros Park, from concerts and documentary screenings about hip hop in Xanthi to polyphonic serenades in Pyrgos, from Mediterranean and Balkan songs in the medieval town of Rhodes to classical music works at the Gkizis Mansion in Santorini or the Athens Concert Hall, and from the outdoor party at Thessaloniki Concert hall, to the rebetika in Sykia Beach and the Nightstalker in Larissa, European Music Day 2023 activates different music cultures in places of diverse cultural significance, opening channels of communication between the traditional and the contemporary, the classical and the popular, the local and the international.
