“From East to West” edition
Mytilene, Lesvos 09th/10th/11th/12th July
The Beach Street Festival (BSF) returns for the 3rd straight year, an artists’ festival which has become now a tradition, in the heart of the Greek summer. The 3rd Beach Street Festival will take place in the capital of Lesbos, Mytilene, from the 09th to the 12th of July.
For some months now we have been preparing fiercely to create an unforgettable summer experience for all. Always including a dynamic Lineup, with live acts & DJs from all over Europe, a mix of sounds from the East and the West and with free campsite, new locations, new activities and graffiti acts all around town.
The Concept and line up of this year’s edition is named “From East to West” which comes from the geographical location of Lesbos. Our aim is to combine the Urban culture of the Beach Street Festival with Sounds of the Eastern spectrum, such as Asia Minor, rempetiko, amanedes, experimentation and Pop, even in their Underground versions. 100 artists from Greece, Turkey and Europe will meet at the crossroads of East and West to give the festival a unique identity and present their work to the public.
The Beach Street Festival 2015 will be hosted on 3 Music Stages which will be located near the Camping site and the festival’s Square. The main locations will be the following:
The Live Stage at the Historical Castle of Mytilene
The Hip Hop-Bass Stage by the sea
The Square Stage at the festival’s square
The festival’s Lineup will be announced mid May, including the grand closing at the Square with a Mega Jam from the entire Lineup, with plenty of ouzo and free entry for all.
The Beach Street Festival, for the first time as an expansion of its activities, will introduce music seminars in cooperation with the University of the Aegean and the Department of Cultural Technology and Communications of Mytilene. The seminars will be divided into 2 parts:
Creative Music seminars on production and promotion with legendary DJs, Producers and Professors from the University of the Aegean.
