2012: Festival story

During all these years each festival had something unique, but the 19th ... was something special!
Maybe was the magic concerts, maybe the fantastic company between  the participant students and musicians, maybe the wonderful and overcrowded audience but the 19th, was an unforgettable festival.

A great summer

A great summer vacation with guitar music, nice people,
and great food...

Could the sound of classical guitar music ringing through the clear night air on a remote island warm your heart? Do daydreams of peaceful or romantic evenings on a moonlit beach play in your mind? Do you enjoy trying new foods, meeting kind people, or walking narrow historic streets lined with stone houses and interesting shops? If these images make you smile, you should consider vacationing on the Greek island of Syros by attending the annual Hermoupolis Guitar Festival in July.

A European event

We would like to point out the European dimension of this event, which seems to us a very valuable contribute to the unification and artistical communication between musicians and audience, It 's a most precious contribute to the European cultural landscape.

The artists, coming from Europe, America and Asia held their performances in different locations all over the city of Hermoupolis in splendid scenografies such as public gardens, neoclassic houses and villas, which guarantee a good affluence of the audience.
