GRITO ROCK Thessaloniki – Olympus 2013
Happening in thirty countries around the world. This year the Grito Rock will be hosted FOR THE FIRST TIME in Greece.
At the beginning of 2013, a small group of people, united and active in order to learn to work together, take responsibility, trust others and create their own our reality. So we took over the coordination of the Grito Rock Festival in Thessaloniki.
The Grito Rock is taking place in three hundred cities in thirty countries around the world: Latin America, Europe, Oceania, Africa! Grito Rock means “rock scream” in Brazilian and launched in 2005 as an alternative to the traditional carnival. The festival is held in all cities between February 1 and March 3.
Grito Rock takes the name of the city or the country that is hosted (Grito Rock Buenos Aires, Grito Rock Spain etc). The Grito Rock Thessaloniki – Olympus 2013 starts on 1 and 2 March in Thessaloniki, and finishes on March 3, Katerini. From 2014 will be hosted in even more cities.
This year’s festival is dedicated to Olympus and in collaboration with the Voluntary Action Group Pieria will emerge very important issues for the protection of this sacred mountain. The opportunities created by organizing the Grito Rock Thessaloniki – Olympus 2013 are summarized in the following:
- Connection to large network of civilizations in the world, constructed and emerged interchangeably.
- Opening of sending Greek artists abroad and hosting international artists to our stage.
- Raising issues of our local society worldwide, such as the protection of Olympus in this case.
- Through the festival, creating the opportunity to come together and work together. People, artists, groups and productions from all over Greece, will create a strong network that allows us to realize everything we couldnt do individually.
Admission to the festival is free to the public, and none of the coordinators, participants and organizers will receive financial compensation. It is simply an attempt… to know us better!!!
