The annual Chios Music Festival this summer returns to the Aegean island with a redesigned artistic program and new creative collaborations focusing on Greek artists.

Between August 3-8 the festival will take place in various locations around Chios including the Archaeological Museum, the Mastic Museum, the Spyros Stephanou Estate in Kampos and the Vigla of Pachi Open Air Theatre in Tigani Sidirounta, while some events will be held on Oinousses, a cluster of islets off the northeastern coast of Chios.

All venues will be properly set up to strictly adhere to all protection measures and ensure the safety of the audience and participants against COVID-19.
