We recently found a fantastic blog entry on the internet which detailed a very special Dark Side of the Moon experience which happened on a remote beach in Crete in the 1970s. We loved it so much we decided to recreate it to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of that iconic album. Join us on Matala Beach in beautiful Southern Crete restaurants, bars and beach. This playback event will form part of the free Matala Beach Music & Arts Festival.
The Matala Beach Festival features a range of music from the 1960s to present day and is pleased to announce that Hugh Cornwell former frontman of The Stranglers will be the first international artist to headline the event. Hugh had a series of international hits with The Stranglers in the 70s and 80s such as Peaches, No More Heroes, Golden Brown, and Always The Sun.
