Django Festival

The Meet Market – 10th Djangofest: Athens Gypsy Jazz Festival 2019, Technopolis, City of Athens
“Machineworks”& “Machineworks Courtyard”
Saturday 14 & Sunday 15, September 2019 // 13:00 – 00:00 both days
Peiraios 100, 11854 Athens

After a much need summer holiday, the Meet Market crew took a variety of ships and planes and returned back to base. Relaxed, tanned, full of energy, we are ready to kick off the new season this Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September, at our beloved venue of Technopolis, City of Athens. Be prepared for a colorful two-day event that will make returning to Athens and to the routine of our daily lives and reality just that little bit easier.

And this time around, we have an appetite for some gypsy jazz swing … Keeping with tradition, for yet another year, we will be taking over Gazi together with the 10th Django Fest Athens, the festival dedicated to Django Reinhardt’s musical heritage, the authentic gypsy jazz Manouche that dominated Europe in the 1930s and 40s.

Come join us for a two-day celebration inspired by Parisian gypsy jazz swing music, complete with 100+ artists, designers, producers, and local small scale businesses showcasing the best of local creativity!

Of course, don’t miss our delicious cocktails and tasty street food, our favorite djs with non-stop dj sets and of course, free activities for kids!

The Meet Market: A 2-day monthly celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit… A nomadic market place of local goods, fresh ideas and friendly folk. An audio-visual jigsaw of handmade & independently designed clothes, accessories, art, objects, organic body products, home ware, tasty food, vintage & retro collectables, records, interactive games, free prizes, dj sets and good vibes!

Giants vs Weird Animals

During the summer we did not stop painting on the taverns’ tablecloths, ice cream packs and cafeteria napkins! After practicing so much with our imagination, it’s time to design gigantic characters made up of infinitely smaller designs, and to prove that animals like the Half-Zebra Half-Fish exist and rock!Of course, our tools will be the markers, our summer mood and the all-powerful spontaneity!
