What: Fengaros 2017
When: Thurday, 3 August – Sunday, 6 August

The scenic village of Kato Drys will once again provide the beautiful backdrop for the festival, where three different stages will entertain for three days from August 3-5, hosting over 35 acts from Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Kuwait, Niger, Israel, Australia, England and the USA.
The first day of Fengaros will kick start the festival with a dynamic burst of psychedelic, progressive, indie and stoner rock, but also jazz. Superb rock bands from Greece will play alongside English indie-band Happyness and jazz-funk band Datfunk from Athens. The night will close with the cinematic music of duo Sancho 003.
The festival’s second day will celebrate the beauty of cultural diversity and take the audience on an exotic World Music journey, with the highlight of the day being the world-famous Bombino from Niger, who will bring the sounds of the Tuareg tribe from the deserts of Africa to Kato Drys. The closing day will reveal the height of its versatility with this year’s festival is headliner Fantastic Negrito from California closing the Field Stage with an explosive live set, just months after winning a Grammy.
DJ sets, radio shows, live-links and parallel events will run for the duration of the festival in various corners of the village. Free camping for ticket holders, bars and food stalls will also be available. Tickets cost €20 one day / €36 three days. For more information call 70007610.
