Summer Nostos Festival at SNF online

RetroFuture Edition

It’s going to be a weird summer, so let’s get together to make it good-weird. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) is going back to the future with a digital analogue of its signature summer events, the Summer Nostos Festival RetroFuture Edition, June 21 to 28, 2020.

New activities for all ages, a sneak preview of the big ideas and dynamic shows to come at the 2021 Summer Nostos Festival and SNF Conference, thrilling performances by Greek and international artists, highlights from summers past, DJ sets, a virtual run, and much more.

While this SNFestival RetroFuture Edition is far from normal and far from its home at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) in Athens, it’s still about enjoying artists we know we love while being introduced to new favorites. About grappling with ideas that push us outside our intellectual comfort zones while soaking up the good vibes of shared time together. About how journeying out into the unknown makes returning home that much sweeter—the spirit of “nostos” that gives the festival its name.
Join us for an SNFestival unlike any other.

A return to our favorite summers

The Summer Nostos Festival (SNFestival) is an international, multidimensional festival that gives us a week bursting with avant-garde art, scintillating conversation, daring ideas, irresistible music, moving dance, delightful performances, participatory entertainment, and lively sports activities for visitors of all ages.

The SNFestival combines a fresh lineup of beloved Greek and international artists with annual signature events: the SNF Conference featuring luminaries from diverse spheres, the evening SNF RUN, and the SNF DIALOGUES in collaboration with the SNF Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University.

Every June, the weeklong SNFestival invites us all to get together at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC). The SNFCC, an open public space that thousands of people have made their own, is the perfect meeting spot to share experiences and create new memories that will have us looking forward to next year’s Summer Nostos Festival as soon as this year’s has ended.

The SNFestival is organized and made possible through the exclusive support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
