The world-famous Cinematic Orchestra headlines the Athens City Festival, with a magical live performance brought to you by the City of Athens. The free live concert takes place in Kotzia Square, the beating heart of the historic center with its majestic buildings and big city vibes. The intense audio-visual experience and cinematic atmosphere will definitely be pinned to your memory.
Cinematic Orchestra has delivered some of the most memorable songs of the last two decades. Their instantly recognizable hits ‘To Build A Home’ and ‘Arrival Of The Birds’ have billions of streams. They have set the tone for dozens of movies and sport broadcasts, and they have powered emotional scenes in TV series such as “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Suits”, “One Tree Hill”, “Orange Is The New Black”, “Criminal Minds,” and the Olympics broadcasts. The band is undoubtedly among the biggest success stories of British music in the 21st century.
From their first album “Motion” released in 1999, it became clear that Cinematic Orchestra was perfectly named for the sound they would create. The same year, they performed live during the ceremony for the Directors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award given to the incomparable Stanley Kubrick. Since then, with four studio albums, two soundtracks and two live albums under their belt, they are known as a musical phenomenon and pioneers in nu jazz, downtempo and modern classical music.
