SUMMER _ JUNE
Release Athens was launched in 2016. Since then, it has become one of the most important summer music events in Greece.
Using as its main venue Nero Square, a wonderful place located by the sea and at the same time a few minutes away from the city center, and with a basic motto of extroversion and optimism, in spite of the difficult times in which it was born, Release Athens gave a new breath to concert events, believing in the liberating power of music – from which, after all, it took its name.
The aim of the festival is to satisfy as many musical tastes as possible, without restrictions or barriers. Many important artists have taken to the stage in its first four years of existence:
Iggy Pop, PJ Harvey, Richard Ashcroft, Sigur Ros, New Order, Jamiroquai, Alice In Chains, Cypress Hill, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Beirut, Hozier, Rag’n’Bone Man, Thievery Corporation, Johnny Marr, Manowar, Disturbed, Clutch, Anthrax, The Black Angels, Slowdive, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, BRMC, Fu Manchu, 1000mods, Cigarettes After Sex, Planet Of Zeus, Parov Stelar, Moderat, Royksopp, DIIV, Shame, Fontaines DC, Morcheeba, Roisin Murphy, Daughter, Archive, Third World, Kadebostany, Postmodern Jukebox, Hollie Cook are some of the names that have graced us with their presence at the festival so far, and the future is expected to be even better.
The Greek audience – and not only, since it already attracts a significant number of spectators from all over the world – has embraced the festival to such an extent that it is now an institution, which makes Release Athens come back every year bigger than before. This evolution is not only in the rich and varied line-up it presents, but also in the quality of production and the conditions it provides to its visitors, in general, so that it is a meaningful and complete experience, in every aspect, offering real thrills and proper service to all those who honour it with their presence – artists and audience alike.
