Vote for the best concert of the summer - Wishevoke

Vote for the best concert of the summer

After two dry years last year We returned to the long-awaited regularity of concerts and prepared throughout the winter for an even hotter summer. The unexpected instant sell-off Arctic monkeys and the great return of Guns N’ Roses showed early on that we are on a very good path, the packed venues in Athens confirmed the momentum that had been built along the way and everyone gathered strength for June and July.

The rain didn’t deter us at first, nor did the persistent heat of the previous days deter us. The particularly difficult climate of the last few days, due to the devastating fires and lost lives that have plagued our homes for another year, casts a strong shadow on our souls. However, music has always been there to encourage and inspire us, and it will continue to do so as long as we live and breathe.

Otherwise everything seems to be going well because apart from what we are looking forward to in the coming months, we still have a lot to do two big Coldplay concerts at the Olympic Stadium in June 2024. In anticipation of what is to come, we have summarized the concerts we have attended outdoors in the last two months, without of course downplaying the indoor events and their highlights Convergeand we ask you to vote for the best concert day this summer in the poll at the end of the article.

Athens Festival 2023 Water Square release

Bigger than ever, Release Athens Festival, with its permanent headquarters in Platia Nerou, continued the high standards we have come to expect, spanning three days at the Stavros Niarchos Culture Center. We have experienced countless great moments again and we are looking forward to experiencing even more next summer.

Guns N’ Roses, Eject, AthensRocks and 4 days of Rockwave

There were some really big events this year, with Guns N’ Roses’ long-awaited concert return generating the most interest and discussion. The wonderful Florence Welch shone again at the hugely successful Ejekt Festival and Ghost confirmed their now top status in the music scene at this year’s highly metallic AthensRocks. Finally, with four days like never before, the Rockwave Festival at Terra Vibe Park laid a solid foundation for its magnificent return to the standards of the past.
