Plissken Festival 2014 Announce Acts Mount Kimbie, Wild, Wooden Shjips Plus Many More

This Summer on 6th and 7th June, a heavy-hitting, multi genre line-up will converge in Athens, Greece for the Plissken festival - brought to you by the first promoters ever to bring an event of this magnitude to an inspirational city that's seeped in culture, both ancient and brand new.
 
Committed to great music over a multitude of genres, the environment and providing a foot in the door for Greek people looking to pursue a career in events, Plissken  is a festival with a big heart and even bigger ambitions, having already bagged nominations for Best Small Festival and Best Indoor Festival in the 2013 European Festival ?wards and a 'Commended' rating from the Greener Festival Awards in the same year.
 
From electronic titans Fuck Buttons, Mount Kimbie, Vitalic, Cooly G and Shackleton, hyped indie bands Crocodiles, Black Lips, and D/R/U/G/S, low-fi rockers No Age and Dirty Beaches to the deep psych-tinged grooves of Damien Jurado, Wooden Shjips and Suuns plus a whole lot more, Plissken's musical curation and location speaks for itself. But, there's even more to the festival than that.
 
The Plissken Lab
 
Believing in young people and wanting to offer something back to the Greek people, the Plissken   Lab was created, offering a series of workshops and hands-on experience on how to set up a festival.
 
The Lab is an annual workshop organised by Plissken that takes place in Athens prior to the festival.  Through a number of theoretical and practical seminars hosted by professionals in their respective fields, The Lab participants get the chance to learn about all of the elements that comprise putting on a festival.
 
The Lab activities culminate in the participation of the Labsters in the festival through the following variety of tasks: Client Service, Event Management, Hospitality, PR, Sustainability, Technical Production and Venue Management.
 
The goal of The Lab is to create a unique educational experience for people eager to learn what goes into festivals plus live events, and to help kick-start future careers in the industry.
 
Location
 
Music at The Plissken site is spread over the main stage, outdoor stage, and club stage. In addition to that, there's a Greek garden brimming with indigenous plants, a chill out area with a cocktail bar dotted with foliage, bean bags and parasols, plus a lounge & comedy stage, a play area and even real boat docked on dry land!
