We welcome this summer with a strong live, in the center of Athens, overlooking the Acropolis at Ermou pedestrian street behind the electrical station of Thiseio.
Athens School Festival is a music initiative of the Organization of Culture, Sport and Youth of City of Athens that started in 2008. The participants are amateur bands from High Schools and Universities that play different kind of music (traditional, rock, metal, garage) who can impress with their skills and vividness even the most difficult audience.
The musicians of the Organization scout the bands from Athens High Schools and Universities from October until December after the approval of the Ministry of Education. It is very important to point out that this Festival differs from others because it isn’t a band contest but an initiative that gives the opportunity to teenagers and young people that are members of a band to show their talent, express their selves through music, play on a big stage in front of a large audience maybe for the first time and learn to behave as professionals with responsibility and consistency, as they have to work with skillful musicians and sound engineers.
Every year the festival attracts on average up to 60 bands and about 6.000 people.
