HOUDETSI FESTIVAL

The Houdetsi Music Festival succeeds in highlighting the magic of the meeting and uniting of different musical worlds, combining them harmoniously with local colors, images, scents, and tastes in a celebration of hospitality, extended unconditionally by the local people to all who wish to participate in this unique festival.

The conscious choice of the creators and organizers of the Houdetsi Festival of a policy of entrance and participation free of charge is not merely the result of adverse the economic circumstances of our times. The basic philosophy and characteristics of the festival clearly necessitate such a policy. Of particular relevance in this context is the participation of hundreds of musicians and volunteers free of charge.

During the four days of the festival, the 5 stages, the exhibition of musical instrument makers, visual artists, the various spontaneous happenings, the quaint and enticing lanes of the village will all invite you to follow the thread of your own Labyrinth.

With the support of the Region of Crete, the Municipality of Archanes-Asterousia, as well as with the close cooperation of the Society of Friends of the Musical Workshop Labyrinth and the Cultural Society of Houdetsi.
