Summer Music Festivals 2015 in Athens

Summertime in Athens is inextricably linked to outdoor concerts. These are all about enjoying your favourite music under the Athenian starlit sky with a cool night summer breeze blowing the day’s heat away and sipping your favourite beverage to top it all. Three annual music festivals open their gates and welcome you once again to take pleasure in listening to your favourite music! Awe-inspiring renowned international music bands or singers create a mosaic of genres that will fulfill all music tastes.



Rockwave

This Festival is the oldest one in Greece. Rockwave is celebrating its 20th birthday this year with a fascinating line-up which promises to vibrate the Terra Vibe Park (the largest and most modern open air venue) in Malakasa. A hubbub of the attending crowd is expected with the appearance of the exhilarating Black Keys on May 30th. The dynamic duo of music history, Dan Auerbach (guitar & vocals) and Patrick Carney (drums), predispose us for an unforgettable concert. Playing together with the Black Keys will feature the psychedelic rock bands from Austin Tegels and the Greek band 1000mods. The one and only exhilarating showman Robbie Williams, once known as a member of the boys’ band Take That, will put on a concert on Saturday June 20th. Kovacs will also appear, with her dark, soothing voice, by Robbie Williams. The Rockwave Festival will dynamically conclude on Saturday, July 4th, featuring the English electronic music group Prodigy as well as the American rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the English heavy metal band Judas Priest.
