preworks with DIXON, ISON + more tba

On Thursday, August 1st, the countdown to Reworks 2024 begins, and preworks marks the final stretch towards the grand rendezvous of contemporary electronic music in Greece this September.

As we approach the 20th Reworks Festival, the precursor to Greece’s biggest celebration returns for a unique musical event. With a summery vibe and great joy, we announce Preworks 2024.

For this year’s Preworks event, we have chosen a beloved venue and a lineup that includes a globally renowned artist. Dixon, the man behind Innervisions who consistently sets trends, has a universally accepted sound and a status that places him as the DJ of DJs. The multi-talented artist returns to Thessaloniki on the first day of August, making the Dixon and rooftop combination ideal! Joining him in the lineup is Ison, whose sets hold a special place in the festival’s history, offering unforgettable moments. More names from the city will be added to the lineup and announced soon!

The rendezvous is familiar, and we await you on Thursday, August 1st, at the Met Hotel with its wonderful view. Get ready for a festive Preworks where the summer laziness and lethargy will be transformed into rhythms & grooves!

prework it out!

reworks agora 2024: 3 days of music and ideas in Thessaloniki

NON hosted the Reworks Agora for the 9th time in Thessaloniki. This interdisciplinary forum of discussions, talks, and presentations with international appeal aims to inform and sensitize citizens about issues related to society, democracy, culture, technology, and the environment. As Anastasis Diolatzis, artistic director of Reworks, stated, “We are very pleased with the continuous development of the institution. For the first time, the Reworks Agora lasted for 3 days. It was a bet that paid off, as the crowded venues filled us with satisfaction and gave us the message to continue this effort.”

The three-day schedule of reworks agora, the first private initiative festival conference in Greece, took place in two cultural venues and included 5 discussion panels, 21 speakers, and 10 artists, bringing together more than 12,000 participants, known as reworkers.

 

 

On May 31, 2024, reworks agora kicked off with DJ sets by Myrophora, ISON, and ARGY, energizing those who attended the iconic Government House (Royal Palace) on the eastern side of Thessaloniki. The cultural activities and new musical stimuli presented paved the way for actions promoting progressive thinking and reflection.

The second day of Reworks Agora, on June 1, 2024, featured 5 discussion panels with invited guests including Konstantinos Filis, Stratis Angelis, Anastasia Karypidou, Anastasios Koutsogiannis, Panos Charitos, Yiannis Sarakatsanis, Apostolis Papadimitriou, Fofi Tsesmeli, Eva Kousiopoulou, Makis Papasimakopoulos, and Bane Prelevic. As Kosmas Panagiotidis, program manager of the conference segment of Reworks Agora, mentioned, “After almost a year of planning, we achieved one of our most timeless and important goals. To create the ideal conditions for work and collaboration to understand and interpret a wide range of issues, bringing citizens and interesting personalities from all over Greece closer together.” The discussion panels sparked dialogue between the audience and speakers, creating the perfect environment for exploring the delicate (im)balance around issues of misinformation, fan violence, inclusivity, censorship in satire, and geopolitical changes resulting from conflicts.

Following the discussions, the penetrating DJ sets by AGAPE, French Beach, Cormac, Tijana T, ISON, and Unickue took place on the two music stages set up inside and outside the Ypsilon multipurpose space. The third and final day of the event, Sunday, June 2, 2024, concluded with the highly anticipated performance of MOMERY and a 4-hour DJ set by ADRIATIQUE.

 

As Anastasis Diolatzis, artistic director of Reworks, mentioned, “After 3 days and nights filled with ideas, opinions, and music, the Reworks Agora team thanks everyone for their contribution to yet another valuable chapter in the institution’s history. Our expectation is to continue offering you even more and more interesting intellectual and musical stimuli. We look forward to seeing you again at Reworks Festival, on September 18-22.”

reworks agora: Αναζητώντας την τέλεια (αν)ισορροπία  

Επηρεασμένοι από τις εξελίξεις σε διεθνές αλλά και εθνικό επίπεδο, αναζητούμε το σημείο ισορροπίας ανάμεσα στην τάξη και το χάος, το φως και το σκοτάδι, το δίκαιο και το άδικο, την αλήθεια και το ψέμα. Πόσο εύκολο ή δύσκολο είναι όμως να ισορροπήσουμε ανάμεσα σε τόσο ισχυρά δίπολα; Το φετινό reworks agora παρουσιάζει ένα τριήμερο πρόγραμμα δράσεων στην πόλη της Θεσσαλονίκης, θέλοντας να δώσει κίνητρα για προοδευτική σκέψη, αναστοχασμό και αναζήτηση νέων μουσικών ερεθισμάτων. Όπως αναφέρει ο Αναστάσιος Διόλατζης, καλλιτεχνικός διευθυντής του Reworks Festival, “Πολιτισμός, περιβάλλον, ανθρώπινα δικαιώματα, σύγχρονη δημοκρατία και κοινωνία, καλές πρακτικές και τεχνολογία είναι μερικά από τα πεδία που καταπιάνεται το reworks agora με στόχο την ανταλλαγή απόψεων, την παρουσίαση θέσεων και την ανάλυση στρατηγικών για την θετική αλλαγή. Ο ρόλος ενός φεστιβάλ θεωρούμε πως δεν είναι μόνο να διασκεδάζει, αλλά να ανοίγει παράλληλα νέους πνευματικούς ορίζοντες. Εξαιτίας αυτής της ανάγκης δημιουργήθηκε το 2016, το reworks agora, το πρώτο φεστιβαλικό συνέδριο ιδιωτικής πρωτοβουλίας στην Ελλάδα. Αναλυτικότερα το πρόγραμμα έχει ως εξής:

Την Παρασκευή 31 Μαΐου 2024 ανοίγει η αυλαία του φεστιβάλ με ένα open air event, από τις 17:00 στο εμβληματικό Κυβερνείο (Βασιλικό Παλάτι) με καλεσμένο τον ARGY. Μαζί του θα εμφανιστούν οι Ison και Myrophora.

Reset! network: Independence needs to stay independent

Reset!, the European network initiated by Arty Farty in Lyon in 2022, federates independent cultural and media structures representing diversity and pluralism in Europe, and amplifies their visibility and networking through a series of actions.

The network’s aim is to highlight the stressful situation and specific needs of today’s cultural independence, which is neither under the control of any public authorities nor affiliated with large private groups.

Working together to redesign (reset) the cultural and media landscape in Europe is Reset!’s main purpose. In its second year, Reset! and its members wish to declare their need to advocate and support their shared values of pluralism, diversity, equality and sustainability on the road to the European Elections 2024.

 

Europe is at a turning point. At a time when war is resurfacing on the continent, obscurantist, reactionary, and authoritarian forces are rising to power in several countries, exerting an unusual pressure of censorship towards the freedom of expression and cultural exchange. Independent media and cultural players are currently, and more than ever, under many different threats, from disappearance to repression to takeover, along with the ongoing economic concentration of their sector.

Despite being weakened, these structures are nevertheless well equipped to respond to the tensions that Europe is currently facing, persistently developing new approaches and narratives to navigate in the current complex climate of economic and political interests as well as their threatening power dynamics.

With one year to go before the European , we, independent cultural structures and media members of Reset!, intend to warn on the dangers our sector faces and offer our contribution to the rewriting of a new cultural, social, and democratic manifesto. Reset! welcomes all players who share our vision for a fair European cultural and media landscape to join us and contribute to shape those claims into action.

We need to be able to take advantage of the exploratory and forward-thinking mindset of independent cultural structures, adapted to the practices of the next generations, to face the great challenges of our time; from ecological questions to equality, inclusion, technological decentralisation, labour rights, territorial reconnection and more, and close the generational gap of public cultural policies.

It is also crucial to resist the ongoing concentration trend at work in Europe in the cultural, music, publishing and media landscape, which, along with the growing commodification of creativity and arts, poses serious risks to the existence and survival of independent culture as well as to creative freedom, artistic diversity, pluralism of opinion and, more generally, the rise of alternative narratives and voices, both nationally and internationally, inside and outside each border. Freedom can only be experienced and exercised when there is equal access to resources and opportunities, independent of external control, influence and coercion by both autocratic public powers and tentacular monopolistic private groups.‍

We, the independents, form an ecosystem whose work is essential for the growth of any creative initiatives in the territories we represent across the European continent and beyond. We embody a cultural and media landscape that is rooted in engaged communities, youth-oriented, and socially aware. We stand for a vision and know-how that is crucial for the very future of our culture. We stand for European and worldwide cooperation, in weaving relationships in networks and in being open to the new, the unknown, the different, the other. For us, cross-sectoral co-construction is the key to the future of our work.

Beyond raising the alarm, the objective of this statement is to bring together all those who share the ambition to redefine the core meaning of cultural independence, the way sectors interact, and the way they relate to public authorities and the private sector. We have a special part to play in federating citizens around an alternative vision of culture with independence at its centre; in creating a sense of community across creative initiatives; and influencing public policies in the sense of greater social consciousness. We believe that by raising our voices as one and starting to advocate for these elections now we can build a new founding act of a new European paradigm for culture, media and arts that is fair and inclusive for all, both within and beyond Europe’s borders as well as for the future generations.

reworks 2023 venues

 

From its very first day, reworks presents the wide spectrum of contemporary electronic music in Greece as a living part of Thessaloniki. Taking place in different locations throughout the city on every edition, reworks tells a unique story  to its visitors. 

From the east to the west side of Thessaloniki, reworks creates cultural bridges, presenting different areas of the city, breaking stereotypes, by showcasing the different aspects of electronic music and its relation with the urban space. This philosophy, of evolving various different places, creating practically a journey within the city,  is considered a novelty for the Greek festival standards.

In its 19th edition,  reworks will present its content on 4 different locations in Thessaloniki. DJ and live performances will take place on some of the most emblematic locations of the city, while reworks will return back to its roots, to the place where it first started and bloomed.

Royal Palace (Kivernio)

reworks by Day

 Wednesday 20 September

 Thursday 21 September

 Friday 22 September

 

 

Palataki (Royal Palace) is the neoclassical mansion located at the cape of Karabournaki in Kalamaria (Thessaloniki) and has probably the finest view in the city. It is a fine example of neoclassical architecture, designed in the 1950s by I. Christopoulos. 

The Royal Palace  is not open to the public. Following the success of reworks, reworks agora and preworks in 2021 and 2022, we are ready to return to the yard of this emblematic location for a 3-day music experience.

The yard of the imposing historical building will host reworks by day  on Wednesday 20th, Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd of September .

 

Practical info: 

  • Due to the high attendance expected,  we kindly advise you to come as early as possible in order to avoid delays on entry. Plus enjoying and supporting all artists performing from the beginning which is also very important. 
  • Palataki is situated in Kalamaria. We advise the use of taxis or public transport (bus) as there is no parking space nearby.
  • POS accepting credit cards will be available at every sales point on the venue, but due to restricted and therefore weak 3G & 4G signal in the area of Palataki, there are periods where the POS credit card receivers are not even operating. Therefore  it is strongly recommended to have cash with you in order to avoid any unpleasant delays when served.

Paul Kalkbrenner at reworks day 3

One of the greatest of all time is coming to reworks 2023

Berlin’s Paul Kalkbrenner has charted a career path like no other. A techno talent, who over the course of two decades has emerged from the underground, to top charts, act in and soundtrack a movie, headline festivals and amass millions of fans, all while refusing to compromise his grand techno sound.

 

 

Kalkbrenner is synonymous with dance music. He is a figurehead and pioneer in the electronic music scene, an uncompromising artist who has endured despite dance music’s fickle trends and obsession with the new.

Thessaloniki loves him so much and each one of his past appearances is an absolute highlight and landmark in the history of reworks. We are more than excited for his return and we are looking forward to his show at reworks day 3, on Friday September 22nd.

Tickets out now.
