What's on in Athens?
On July 16, 2013 spend the evening at the most beautiful open-air venue of Athens – Plateia Nerou, right by the sea – and feel the sounds and rhythm of EJEKT Festival 2013. EJEKT Festival 2013 presents some of the biggest and most interesting new music acts of pop, rock and electronic music.
For ancient Greeks and their society, colour constituted a way to mark various attributes.The blond hair of the gods projected their power; the brown skin of warriors and athletes was a sign of virtue and valour, while the white skin of the “korai” expressed the grace and radiance of youth.
Quality art for everyone. Hellenic Festival or as it is called in Greece "Athens & Epidaurus Festival", is focused in highlighting Greek creativity and at the same time is open in new creative projects of foreign artists, cause only if you are in touch with the artwork of others, one country’s art can be strong enough with its own identity.
