Vote for the best concert of this summer

Two full years without concerts by foreign artists in Greece was a lot. What’s more: two summers without the big concerts and festivals aren’t a summer. With the arrival of this spring, the club shows finally put us in the concert mood, but what we were waiting for was the unrepeatable June and July storm in the open spaces and at festivals.

Despite the difficult situation, the Greek audience, with great patience, mastered it with great precision, followed the call and had fun with their souls. We fed our missing friends, drank lots of beers and drinks, danced, sang and supported the artists and creators who became meteors from one moment to the next.

In the hope that this two-month period will not be a break but will signal a return to normality, we have collected the concerts we attended in the open spaces We ask you to highlight the best concert day of this summerin the survey that follows at the end of the article.

Iron Maiden Athens

We had it first on the remaining days of the festival Eject led by the elders musehis return Rock wave at TerraVibe with a repelled concert Social distortion finally be fulfilled AthensRocks high priority to rock with them Dropkick Murphys. The same organizer is also credited with hosting the biggest concert of the summer, which of course belonged to them Iron Maiden.

His popularity is also noted positively OAK as a second pole in terms of the venues, be it the surrounding area or the stadium where we also saw it Scorpions and an amazing one Alice Cooper. On the other hand, it seems that we do not have a modern space ideal for a large event with up to 40,000 people. With today’s data, only Panathinaikos Stadium could close the gap as long as its capacity remains at this level.

Good luck!  Black Emperor

Finally, it seems that the Herodius has been established as an option for the arena’s concert audiences and promoters, with the hope that we will one day see more rock or even metal artists there, whose status and aesthetic fit the old conservatory’s long history. It’s off to a good start and the rockers have shown a number of exemplary behavior in recent years, so we have every right to expect more.
