European Music Festival 2019

«Current translation pending review – For demonstration only».

The concert of classical music by the Rhodes Music School opened the European Music Festival 2019 in Rhodes on Thursday, June 20th.

The European Music Festival is maturing and evolving, going beyond the bounds of the event and giving everyone the drive, the impetus and the keys to become active members of it. Every dream wants to come true, every moment wants to live, every feeling comes true. The European Music Festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary and invites you to take part in the largest music festival taking place simultaneously across Europe and elsewhere!

From the 20th to the 23rd of June we celebrate. Not in the context of a “classic” event but in a big party-centric party, what else? The music!

Inspiration, joy, sadness, emotions – anything he can give and create. We can all be part of the European Music Festival and support it.

Rhodes gives a dynamic presence with eight open events:
