The Mediterranean Radio Festival of Sitia

When the Mediterranean meets the radio! Music and voices unite, to travel by radio to the whole world!

Festive summer vibes, sounds, dances, and the glow of the Mediterranean Sea, broadcasted straight to our hearts, will fulfill our souls at one of the largest festivals in Crete! Sitia, the princess of Crete surrounded by sounds and the salty sea breeze, is once again the meeting spot for people to celebrate.

Unique musical groups, special performers, volunteers, various associations, sponsors, and communication promotors join their forces to organize this great festival. Traditional music from all over Greece and Europe, explosive Balkan dances, melodies, and arrangements in calming “rebetiko” and hip-hop rhythms. Music with positive energy, percussion, strings, and wind instruments, from rock to traditional, flamenco as well as Cretan music, are just some of the examples of this year’s musical journey.

With the support of Port Authority of Sitia, Association of Professional and Amateur Fishermen of Sitia, Nautical Club of Sitia, Hellenic Mediterranean University.
