12 days of music – Joss Stone will be headlining this year’s Fengaros Music Festival.
Joss Stone will be headlining this year’s Fengaros Music Festival. ALIX NORMAN looks forward to an event packed with music to tempt all sorts.
In summer, any festival worth its salt moves out of town and into the open spaces… Pharos takes us to Kouklia with its International Chamber Music Festival, The Festival of Ancient Greek Drama plays out in three open-air stadiums, and the Countryside Animafest does exactly as promised – gets us out into a series of beautiful bucolic villages. Later on in the summer, there’s the opportunity to get alternative in a forest, courtesy of the AfroBanana Republic festival, and in October we’ve got the Open Studios event – which sees artists all over the country inviting the public to travel off the beaten track for a spot of venturesome art. But for now, let’s take a look at an annual festival that draws us to the stunning village of Kato Dhrys, there to bask in some seriously wonderful music: the Fengaros Festival.
