Horto Festival 2020

The full programme for Horto Festival 2020 will be published here as soon as possible. 

Some events and seminars may already be published, so please go to those pages also.

This year's festival is under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture.

The documentary activities in memory of Pia Hadjinikou-Angelini and the Open
Orchestra workshop are carried out with the kind donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

Keeping in mind the conditions of the pandemic, we have reshaped our program for this year in order to comply with the new instructions and we take every new decision based on the common wealth. This year's activities include small workshops and seminars that take place mainly in the open-air theater, while the concerts and performances that will accompany them will be announced through the press, mail, facebook as well as in central places of the village.

Every workshop ends with an event

  • At the end of each workshop, a respective performance or concert will be given by the participants.
  • Tribute to the founder Pia Hadjinikou-Angelini

Part of the program is implemented with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture
