The Festival The Urban Picnic Festival 2015 at a glance The Urban Picnic Festival invites you for the fourth year in a row to the greatest urban picnic chockfull of all-fresh music and breezy images. Just like last year, this year’s festival “Music and Action at the City’s Monuments” is part of the Municipality of Thessaloniki’s cultural program in collaboration with the 16th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities. The festival’s plan entails the creation of a great urban picnic which will be flanked, on the one hand, by concerts by promising music ensembles from around the city and, on the other, by films, feature and short ones, shown at the specially designed open-air movie theater.
As of the very first year, Thessaloniki’s public responded enthusiastically to our invitation to enjoy with us three days full of culture in the heart of the city. The festival’s key goal is to establish firmly this unique event creating at the same time an outstanding cultural institution which will herald the end of summertime in the best possible way. Just like the year before, the Roman Forum is again the venue playing host to the Urban Picnic Festival proving that archaeological sites can be truly open to the public and can host exceptional cultural events.
In the belief that in times of crisis it’s groups of friends and collaborations that can create and turn ideas into actions, we, first as a group of friends and then as Parenthesis, together with all the collaborating agencies, invite you to the Urban Picnic Festival 2015 at the Roman Forum: we’ll share food, melodies, and gorgeous images under the skies, ushering summertime out in an atmosphere of celebration. We’ll be there waiting for your great mood, your friends and, needless to say, your full picnic hampers.
Can’t wait!
