Our last escape mission from Athens was a good motivation for several good discussions concerning how we comprehed “a good environment according to our ideas about techno parties in general”. Thessaloniki is definitely a good example regarding this debate. Psycho-geographically (I use a situationist term in order to describe properly) the city is an excelent location for techno , minimal and other urban concepts. Thessaloniki ‘s city plan has nothing to feel jealous about from other international metropolis of planet earth , who are famous for their electronic music scenes such as London , Berlin etc.
Comparing Thessaloniki with Athens now, I came up to a conclusion. I realized why art happenings are certainly more successful at the most of the cases there. Thessaloniki is a good combination of various things. Smaller than Athens(You dont have to walk much) but smarter , more artists , better events , small walkways , industrial sites and many more stuff that really offers an essentialy sofisticated mood and inspiration. Well , I think in the sense of psycho-geography Thessaloniki is a lot of promised location for the future . Im definitely looking forward to see what it will happens at the near future in the city. We are also planning to write more reports and an extend info article (special editon) in the future. Glimpse at the pics bellow(there are just few but…). special thanks to angeldoumis and flybutter for the good job
