English - Release Athens

Release Athens is back!

Some of the world’s top live acts will be headlining the 3rd edition of the biggest festival in Greece.
At this year’s edition, we’re bringing to Athens big acts like Jamiroquai, Parov Stelar, UB40, Thievery Corporation, Rag ‘N’ Bone Man and many more!

Latest addition to the line up of the first day is legendary Richard Ashcroft of the Verve who is coming to Greece for the first time, replacing London Grammar who cancelled the first two shows (in Greece and Israel) of their summer festival tour due to a health problem of Hannah Reid. We are working on a rescheduled date for London Grammar in the near future.

Release Athens is a music festival, aiming to bring a new breath into the musical reality of the country , with a line-up of top acts of the world stage, offering new thrills to the Greek audience, who seeks the boldness and the colourfulness of foreign festivals.
