We know. No bangin' rock concerts by the sea; no outdoor theatre for the masses; no dance parties under the stars. In the words of Bananarama, it’s going to be a cruel, cruel summer. But wait. All is not lost. The good folk of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation are stepping up to salvage the essence of their annual open-air ode to summery vibes - the Summer Nostos Festival - with an on-line edition, recalibrated for these peculiar days.
“We’ll foresee the future, bring back avant-garde ideas and performances of years past, and enjoy the present moment, despite its strangeness. The collective result is something wonderfully new and entirely online.”
Expect heapings of quality music, DJ sets, performances by top Greek and international artists, a virtual run (yep), and much more. Check back here for more details to be announced shortly.
