Description

Come through the doors of Onassis STEGI and discover the wildest musical kaleidoscope imaginable. If your kids are between… 0 and 12 years old, there is a music festival made especially for them; sounds, tunes and beats that will make you want to get up and dance ‘explode’ in the “Big Bang Festival”.

We know it all too well; nobody appreciates music quite like kids—they follow every beat, open up their eyes to every strange sound and lay their hands on all sorts of musical instruments and objects without giving it a second thought. Instead of telling them “Don’t do this or that,” we tell them to come through the doors of Onassis STEGI in a hurry and plunge themselves into the world of music.

This is a music festival devoted to their magnificent sense of curiosity. And—just so that you parents know—we have tons of wild stuff in store for you every year. We sneak into scientists’ labs or into the belly of a guitar, we rub balloons together, become orchestra conductors or just parade through the neighbourhood to the sound of music. Come join us then, together with your kids, to discover all the surprises we’ve got in store for you and to experiment with music by taking part in all the action. Your kids will proudly say in years to come that they went to their first music festival before they could even speak.
