After the successful Plisskën Festival earlier in the year, the team return to celebrate their fourth Birthday. On Thursday 4th and Friday 5th of December, the Winter Plisskën Festival will be hosting consecutive nights in Greece’s largest 2 cities – Iera Odos in Athens and Principal Club Theatre in Thessaloniki. The opening night will see electronic duo Simian Mobile Disco bring their trademark melodic techno to the capital alongside New York outfit Swans, showcasing their experimental post punk to the masses before heading up the east coast for round 2. They will be joined by dub and reggae master Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Ninja Tune’s avant-garde producer and multi-instrumentalist The Bug and popular American trip hop artist Son Lux.
Winter Plisskën Festival 2014 opens its doors Thursday, December 4th at 20:00 at Athens, Friday, December 5th at 20: 30 in Thessaloniki. With the first ticket batch sold out, sales continue at the price of 25 Euros. More information about the times will be announced soon.
Plisskën Festival has also been nominated for ‘Best Indoor Festival’ by European Festival Awards as well as the star for the Greener Festival Award, both for the second consecutive year running.
