Can Music, Heritage and Tourism work together? Watch the 18th European Music Day Greek edition Opening Ceremony
On the occasion of the 18th anniversary of the Music Day edition in Greece, our greek NIMPE partner MESO Music Events (National Coordinator of the Greek Network of the European Music Day organizers) inaugurated an innovative collaboration with the Hellenic Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Tourism, the National Council of Archaeology and the Greek Tourism organization aiming to connect Music, Cultural Heritage and Tourism.
The innovative initiative which was co-promoted and broadcast by Greek Tourism organization, gathered very rare authorizations to design, organize, promote and manage production of a unique and exceptional event.
The Venue? One of the unique places of Greece, the sacred temple of Poseidon at Sounion, a grandiose archaeological site which was for the circumstance exceptionally open to the public after the sunset, entrance free of course. The result was simply amazing, some said it was celestial! Aside the 500 persons that managed to be present (for safety reasons) another 25.000 persons joined the live streaming of the Greek Tourism organization (FB) and their feedback was also unanimous: yes, Music and Cultural Heritage defintely can work together!
