European Day of Music - Free events in Athens

The "European Music Day" is a cultural institution born in 1982 in Paris, France which has then spread to many other European towns and capitals. Well-known and amateur musicians take the streets, and squares and parks and bars and play their music for free. It takes place on June 21st every year - sometimes the previous couple of days as well.

This is the 13th time that the Day of Music is celebrated in Athens and below I've listed a selection of the main musical events that will be offered to Athens residents and visitors this Thursday: There will be more shows, more geared to younger audiences at various squares mostly programmed in the afternoon hours.
