5/10/2018 – 7/10/18
Syros Jazz Festival is the fruit of Vangelis Aragiannis and Yannis Roussos’s love for Jazz music. The festival began in 2013, and its organisers had already produced a number of important live music concerts. One of the festival’s highlights was the presence in 2010 of two great American artists, singer Miles Griffith and drummer Clarence Penn. Every year, the festival hosts important acts from Greece and other countries. In addition to concerts, it features improvisation seminars and Jazz film screenings at Apollon Theatre, as well as high-quality side events. The festival’s events in October mark the conclusion of SYROS CULTURE 2018 organised by the Municipality of Syros – Ermoupolis, which is an integral part of cultural life on the island.
