How many great rock bands do you feel have emerged in the last 20 years? AthensRocks festival surely knows of two, and has booked both for its summer 2020 edition. American stoics The National and British heavy post-punks IDLES will perform at the Athens Olympic Sports Complex. The good news is that both bands are Greek favourites, and since more acts are to be announced for the day, it already sounds like a great, sunny concert day in Athens. Bad news is that some people will have to choose between AthensRocks and Plisskën's event on the same day. Can't have it all!
Update: AthensRocks 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19. The National and IDLES have been re-booked for 2021. Balthazar have also been added to the line-up. All 2020 tickets apply for 2021. More information on vouchers and refunds will be announced soon.
