More than Mykonos:  This roundup of top parties and special events on select islands in the Cyclades is a supplement to my popular Mykonos party scene 2017 post. 

This listing includes major events taking place on Ios, Naxos, Santorini and other nearby islands which many Mykonos partygoers visit during summer holidays in Greece. I have added this party listing in response to numerous requests from readers who were wondering where they could find good parties, besides Mykonos, while they are touring the Cyclades.

 

 

 

Please turn to page 2 of this post to see more upcoming parties and special events in the Cyclades.

What’s happening on Mykonos in August

This post features promotional flyers for parties and special entertainment events taking place on Mykonos during August only. To see events for other months during summer 2016, click here.

I add events to this post whenever they are announced, so check back regularly for updates. Note that most bars and clubs don’t post their full party schedules for the summer, and often announce events as little as one to three days before they take place. To see events that have been announced for September, click here.

 

Daily party events

The island’s main party beaches are Paradise, Super Paradise and Paraga, where beach parties start in the afternoon and continue into the evening. At Paradise, parties start around 4 p.m. at Tropicana Club and at Guapaloca, while partying can begin as early as mid afternoon at Super Paradise Club at Super Paradise beach. Guapaloca also throws a body painting partyk every night at 10 p.m. At Paraga, you’ll find afternoon beach parties at Kalua, daily pool parties at 5 p.m. at Sueno Village, and music entertainment events most days of the week at Scorpios. Parties can spontaneously erupt at Psarou beach, as well, when guests at Nammos beach bar and restaurant feel the urge to let loose (and they often do).

In Mykonos Town,  Semeli Hotel holds a Sun:Set party at 6 p.m. every day in its Semeli Lounge. The Elysium Hotel in the School of Fine Arts district presents its famous Sunset Cabaret on its seaview pool terrace every evening starting at 8:30 p.m., while @54 Club has nightly drag shows starring Roxy Brooks and dancer Matthew Malia at 1 a.m. At the 4711 live music club, Dionisis Sxoinas will perform nightly (except on Tuesdays and Wednesdays) from July 21 through to August 21.

Besides special one-time events featuring leading Greek and international DJs, some bars and beach clubs hold regular theme parties on specific days of the week. Here are some of the regular events being offered during July and August this summer:

What’s happening:  Now that it is spring, some Mykonos bars and clubs have opened for the 2016 tourist season, while others have begun announcing the dates they will re-open.

Ling Ling got things off to an early start on March 23 when it kicked off its second season on Mykonos. It was followed in early April by Passo Doble Cocktail Bar, the JackieO’ bar in Mykonos Town, and Room 101. Mid-April saw the opening of popular gay hangouts Lola and Porta Bar, along with Galleraki Bar and Vicolo Bar at Little Venice. Scarpa Bar and Semeli Bar in Little Venice will open in late April, as will Thalami Bar behind the Mykonos Town Hall, and Remezzo near the Old Port. Beach parties resumed in mid-April with Guapaloca Bar and Tropicana Club opening at Paradise Beach. They will be joined the last week of April by Nammos at Psarou beach and Kalua Bar at Paraga. And in May,  Scorpios will celebrate its grand re-opening at Paraga beach.

Rakkan Mykonos will be opening in late May at Kalo Livadi beach, while Monarch has moved to Platis Gialos beach. See my post New beach bar/restaurant venues coming to Mykonos for further details about those two places.

Party schedules will be posted here when available

Bookmark this page and keep checking back — I will be updating this post with information about bar & club openings, and DJ schedules, as soon as events are announced. Keep in mind that the island’s biggest party clubs generally don’t post detailed summer party lineups until late May to mid June, while many bars don’t publicize their season kick-off celebrations until shortly before they open their doors.

For information about ticket prices, advance booking, table reservations and VIP services, please contact the specific clubs you are interested in.

And if you want to get a general idea of what to expect around the time you’re planning to visit Mykonos this summer, scroll through my 2015 party post, which lists club openings and party events that took place each month between March and November last year.

Festive music and fun for kids at Athens airport on Christmas Eve & New Year’s Eve

 Athens airport Christmas and New Year events

Special music and children’s entertainment events will be held Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve at Athens International Airport

 

Travel treats: Athens International Airport will be sharing the holiday spirit with special festive music and fun for kids on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.

Between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on both of those days, the airport will be treating travellers to live music and entertainment, as well as fun events specially geared to children, in the open access area of the terminal’s departures level.

The entertainment lineup for both December 24 and December 31  includes:

♦ appearances by two Happy Mascots — the Christmas Elf and the “living toy,” Miss Carousel — who will entertain children with acrobatic tricks, wish cards and photo opportunities

♦ the wind-up Living Statue, who will delight travellers near Entrances 1, 2, 3 and 4 in the open access area of the departures floor; and

♦ the Transformation Booth, where visitors can choose fun accessories and props for photo-taking. The booth will be at  Entrance 2 for the check-in counters.

On Christmas Eve, the Experimental Music School of Pallini will present a musical program of carols and all-time-favourite Christmas classics. The ensemble includes students who specialize in Greek and international traditional music and who play traditional instruments. The performance will take place from 12:00 to 12:45 in the open access section of the airport shopping center on the departure floor.

On New Year’s Eve, the Athens-based band Vanila Swing will help travellers bid farewell to 2015 with a live swing concert featuring the group’s trademark blend of 50s rockabilly and 40s swing with a fresh rock’n’ roll twist. The concert will take place from 12:00 to 13:00 in the open access section of the airport shopping center on the departure level.

The holiday festivities are a collaborative effort between Athens International Airport and the ελculture cultural platform.
