Get ready for a day of festival fun at Rockwave; this pop rock event in Athens has big name bands, a party vibe and attracts revellers from the Greek capital and beyond.
Somethings are the perfect pair: TV and pyjamas, gin and tonic, bacon and eggs... But let's not forget another great combo - sunshine and live music. Pop-rockers in Athens are in for a treat this summer as the annual Rockwave festival returns to the capital for a day of music, dancing and of course, perfect weather.
Located around a half an hour’s drive north east from the city centre, this Sunday musical extravaganza is held in ever popular Terra Vibe Park next to Malakasa village. You can expect a range of national favourites, international stars and a great headline act to match. Keep looking out for the line-up, but so you can get a feel for the vibe, previous festivals have included the likes of Depeche Mode, The Prodigy and Guns 'N Roses. The established site is the perfect place to dance, drink and generally get into the festival spirit - buses run from the main terminal in Athens.
Greece's Mediterranean climate pretty much guarantees good weather for Rockwave so go prepared for the day with sunscreen and sun protection (there are lockers available for hire). After all, you don't want to pair your festival look with a lobster tan. Some things just don't work.
- Get there: Take the train from Athens to Malakasa.
- Stay: Base yourself in Athens and visit Terra Vibe Park for the day.
