Rockwave Festival, Athens
I go to Rockwave since the first year back in 1996 when it was called "Rock Of Gods". Every summer some big international names (but also some greek ones) play live there and most of the times we are happy having on stage 3 to 6 groups. The first years they used to change the place almost every year but since 2004 the festival takes place at Terravibe which is near Malakasa, a small town 40km away from Athens. The distance is a big problem but we dont have many big festivals like this.
For 2010 the line up is:
BLACK EYED PEAS / FAITHLESS / KONSTANTINOS B
FATBOY SLIM / THE TING TINGS / DJ SHADOW / WHITE LIES / GARCIA PLAYS KYUSS
MASSIVE ATTACK / SKA-P / GOGOL BORDELLO / AGELAKAS / MARTINA TOPLEY BIRD
single tickets for the first day 50-60e,
single tickets for the other days 40-45e
the 3day ticket costs 120e,
The first Rockwave Festival took place in 1996, this was the fourth one (Agios Kosmas, 13/7/1999). It is held in July, for three days, each of them 5-6 different groups and singers participate. That day I had seen Mercury Rev, dEUS, Placebo, Blur.
