All has been quiet on the Athens live music front since the summer, but thankfully things are going to get loud again! We are less than a month away from the 2nd Winter edition of Plisskën Festival, one of the best live music events you can find in the Greek capital.
Last summer we enjoyed the 5th and most ambitious edition of the festival so far, featuring the likes of Savages, Waxahatchee, Sleaford Mods, ..And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Mudhoney, Thee Oh Sees (just to mention some of my favorites performances - check them all out here and here).
This year, on December 2nd and 3rd, we are expecting to see over 40 international and local artists representing a broad spectrum of genres and styles, who will play on 4 stages in 3 different locations all dotted next to each-other, creating a street festival atmosphere.
Some of the names that stand out include Death In Vegas, Tuxedomoon who will be performing their classic debut "Half-Mute" in full, Prefuse 73, Zomby, La Femme and Psychic Ills. Check out the complete line-up below and visit plisskenfestival.gr for more details:
And here are videos for few of the songs we are hoping to enjoy live in less than four weeks:
Death In Vegas - Hands Around My Throat
Tuxedomoon - What Use? (live @ Les Ateliers Claus, Brussels, May 12th, 2016)
