PROGRAM / BIG BANG Athens 2016

Saturday 21 May 2016 - Monday 23 May 2016

BIG BANG Athens 2016

The European music festival for young people and the adventurous visitors 0-12 years old stops off for second year at the OCC!

Big Bang is an exciting festival of music for a young audience; as hosts of the event, major cultural centres in Europe will transform their venues into adventurous musical labyrinths. The young music-lovers who embark on the journey will experience a colourful musical programme featuring concerts, sound installations and workshops. At Big Bang, musicians working in different genres and styles search for the best way to present their music to children.
Big Bang isn’t just a festival aimed at children; it couldn’t exist without their participation. At every event, professional musicians set a dialogue in motion with young singers and instrumentalists and share the stage with them.

The Big Bang European network is the brainchild of Zonzo Compagnie from Belgium. The support of the European Union made it possible for cultural centres around the Europe to collaborate and to undertake and support a joint mission: to present the wonders of music in an imaginative and adventurous way which is accessible to children.

Take the ‘red line’ (Line 2: Anthoupoli - Elliniko) and get off at ‘Syngrou-Fix’. Follow the signs to “Exit to Syngrou/Drakou” and you will emerge on Syngrou Avenue. From there, you can either take a bus or trolley-bus from the stop in front of the Metro escalators on Syngrou Avenue and get off four stops later at ‘Panteion’; if you are not in a hurry, it is a 12-minute walk down Syngrou Avenue to Panteion University, where you can use the pedestrian underpass to cross over to the other side of Syngrou Avenue.
