July’s musical appointments in Athens

Having hosted artists such as Moby, James, Bad Religion, Unkle, Faith No More, Pixies, Jarvis Cocker, Royksopp and Beastie Boys, the Ejekt Festival ( is the favorite summer rendezvous of the Athenians with electronic music since 2005. This year’s lineup of the festival (July 15) includes, among others, Parov Stelar, the Austrian king of electro-swing, Steve Aoki, the popular American DJ from EDM, Kadebostany, a group that is particularly popular in Greece, and Glasvegas from Glasgow. The stage will be set up again a stone's throw from the sea, at the “Plateia Nerou” (Water Square), in the area of Neo Faliro that is easy to reach by tram. A few days later (July 21), Manu Chao will close this year’s Rockwave Festival, yet another timeless appointment of Athens with rock music that celebrates its 20th anniversary. With his band - “Mano Chao La Ventura” -  the French-Spaniard songwriter returns to Greece for a unique live party at Terravibe (in the area of Malakassa), where he will perform favorite songs from his great career and others that have never been played live.
