Q&A with Ejekt Festival




How would you describe Ejekt Festival?

Ejekt festival is a major music festival taking place in Athens every summer since 2005. It has hosted major stars (Muse, The Killers, New Order, Steve Aoki, Pet Shop Boys, Beastie Boys, Kasabian, etc.) alongside new bands, covering musical genres from rock and pop to dance music. The facilities of Ejekt Festival match the standards of top European festivals and are designed to offer the best festival experience for the thousands of Greek and foreign fans who attend every year.  

How do you decide the line-up each year? How did you choose the line-up for 2018?

Each year we try to combine established acts with bands that represent current trends. For 2018, the line-up includes a true legend of modern music (Nick Cave), the most successful UK rock band of the last decade (Editors), the next big thing from the UK (Wolf Alice), an American band with one the best albums of 2017 (Protomartyr), and a local act with lots of potential (Jack Heart). With tickets starting from 40 euros, this is a line-up made in heaven for music lovers.   

How much do you think the festival venue affects the experience?  

Ejekt Festival takes place at Plateia Nerou, the most beautiful open-air venue in Athens, right by the sea and only 10 minutes from downtown Athens by car. Since the festival starts at 17.30 and ends after midnight, visitors get to enjoy amazing live music while gazing at the Athenian sunset and summer night sky.
