RELEASE ATHENS FESTIVAL
Release Athens, powered by Fuzz Productions, is a major annual music festival that takes place throughout the month of June at Water Plaza (Plateia Nerou), a beautiful site right by the sea, in Athens, Greece. The festival started in 2016 and it is currently in its 4th year of existence.
Already established as one of the best in the region, Release Athens 2019 has a line-up that includes top acts from all over the world, such as Iggy Pop, New Order, Alice In Chains, Manowar, Disturbed, Clutch, Johnny Marr, James, Shame and many more.

Aiming to breathe new life into the festival scene in Greece, Release Athens combines a rich line-up (that consists of both older-big and newer-evolving acts) with the best possible production standards – with regards to staging, PA & Lights and general conditions on the festival site.
Release Athens is growing every year, having attracted more than 175.000 attendants in its first three years of existence. The 2019 edition is the biggest one to this day, with 6 days already announced – and a few more on the way – targeting a combined audience of over 100.000!
