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!

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!
