World’s Leading Cultural Destination Resort
Named the World’s Leading Cultural Destination Resort at the 2022 World Travel Awards, it’s a year for celebration, as 2022 was also Sani Festival’s 30th anniversary.
The Spirit of Sani Festival
30 YEARS OF FESTIVAL HISTORY
Every summer, from July to August, Sani Festival proudly brings together Greek and international artists, strengthening the cultural bond between natives and visitors. Rooted in jazz, the first event took place in 1992 over three days. Since then, the programme has diversified and the venues expanded to accommodate a wide programme of music and performing arts, from classical music to modern dance and musical theatre.
SANI FESTIVAL 2022
AT SANI FESTIVAL
Celebrating 30 glorious years of Sani Festival, there was no better way to conclude 2022’s musical celebrations than with a concert from the world’s most beloved tenor Andrea Bocelli in August. Accompanied by Thessaloniki’s State Symphony Orchestra, and the ethereal voices of Athena Andreadis, Cristina Pasaroiu and Aliki Chrysochou, the concert was truly unforgettable and will always be remembered as one of the ultimate highlights of 2022.
First Sani Festival took place
Sani Hill becomes a kaleidoscope of colours as night falls: the brilliant orange of the setting sun, the vivid lights of night-time performances, the moonlight beaming down from a starlit sky. Watch as artists perform at heady heights, against the dramatic backdrop of a ruined Byzantine tower and the Aegean Sea.
SANI FESTIVAL 2022
Awarded the World’s Leading Cultural Destination Resort by the World Travel Awards, last summer we celebrated 30 fabulous years of Sani Festival. Chucho Valdes and Paquito D’Rivera filled Sani Hill with their delicious Caribbean rhythm, Jack Savoretti sung his much-loved hits, and Bob Geldof and the Bobkatz rocked out. As for the closing act of the summer and the most hotly anticipated Greek concert of 2022? Andrea Bocelli, the world’s most beloved tenor, who thrilled the audience with his mesmerising voice and truly unforgettable performance.
