Over the last decade a new generation of underground Greek dance producers has accomplished something that still remains a difficult feat for the majority of mainstream artists.
They have managed to break into the international dance arena through releases under renowned foreign labels and gigs in the most esteemed clubs and festivals around the world.
The EnTechno festival will gather many of these artists at a 24-hour dance event in Athens on 5 September at the Hellenic Cosmos Cultural Centre.
What is also noteworthy is the fact that a great number of the aforementioned artists have more bookings abroad than within Greece.
Apart from the artists who are still based in Athens, many djs/producers have already relocated abroad to cities like London and Berlin, establishing an even closer relationship with the international dance scene and putting together a bio that impresses with gigs at well-known festivals like Movement (Detroit/U.S.A.), Sonar (Barcelona/Spain), Exit (Novi Sad/ Serbia), Winter Music Conference (Miami/U.S.A.) and many more.
So it is no wonder that the lovers of techno and intelligent dance music see the EnTechno Festival giving the the Greek dance scene a kiss of life by providing the eletronic dance music scene a showcase.
Headliners of the party are Ellen Allien and the Wighnomy Brothers.
Greek performers at the Festival will include Argy, GummiHz, K.atou, Cj Jeff, Leon Segka, Mr. Statik, Lemos, Kreon and Tolis Q.
The Festival is being organised by Panayiotis Pilafas, an electronic musical performer with a long histroy of being involved with after parties in New York, and New York dance music promoter, Nectarios Ioannidis, whose Resolute is renowned for organising dance parties across the Big Apple.
Musical documentaries which highlight the electonic music scene in the USA and in Germany will also be screened at the Festival.
