Matala Beach Festival 2013

The Matala Beach Festival is back! From June 21 until June 24, 2013, Greece’s largest free festival will take place in Matala, Municipality of Festos on the beautiful island of Crete.

Hugh Cornwell, former frontman and song writer of the iconic UK band The Stranglers, will be just one of the famous artists who will appear on the Matala Beach Festival 2013. This year’s festival will also be a celebration for the 40th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s great Dark side of the Moon album, which will include a playback of the album and a live performance by Kings of Floyd Tribute Band. Locomondo will make a special appearance and last not least – who else could appear but the legendary Tonis Sfinos!

Three stages, over 200 participating artists, live DJ sets starting in the morning, live shows in the evening and beach parties that will go on until the next sunrise along with activities and workshops addressed to all: everyone will have an unforgettable time in this festival!

The “journey” to Matala has already begun with the Road to Matala European Tour (June 5-21: London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Frankfurt & Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Athens, Matala). It is really a revival of the legendary Road Trip which was taken back in the ‘60s, in the company of the talented Harry Keyworth and friends of Matala; the road trip will begin from London and will follow a route across Europe with Matala as the final destination! On June 16th, those who are already in Matala will have the opportunity to enjoy some street painting!

Matala Beach Festival 2013 will run under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism and the Greek National Tourism Organisation.

Join the celebration in Matala and watch History being written once again!
