Stereo Nova at reworks day 2

They have marked the history of modern electronic music of Greece. Their legend has been sustained for decades, with a great nostalgia for this unique duo but also an anticipation of whether we would ever hear them again.

This anticipation is over as on September 21st, after more than 25 years, Stereo Nova will come to perform in Thessaloniki and reworks!

Stereo Nova came suddenly on the surface for the first time in 1992. With their emblematic first self titled album they have changed the way that everyone was listening to music. It is not an exaggeration to say that  Konstantinos Bhta and Michael Delta have  shaped the modern sound of the 90s in the country. Reflecting the period they have created tracks about the urban and dystopian landscape of the metropolis, the daily routine, the late hour illegal rave parties and the club culture as a phenomenon, combined with a romantic innocence and a unique musical identity, sweet and so updated.  

Most of the youth have been nurtured via this Stereo Nova era. With five timeless albums that they released with  5 years, they have influenced far too many eversince. “New Life 705”, “Puzzle in the air”, “Little Boy”, ῾Wireless world”, the masterpiece album “Telson” which is regarded as one of the most important albums of all time in Greece, “Vitamina Tek” have left their stigma and sound as refreshing as they have been made today. Being on the top of the game, the duo decides to split  in 1997 each one following a remarkable solo career. 

In the meantime, with no new work or performances as Stereo Nova still their music through its longevity has continued to preserve their myth.  Until 2018 when out of nowhere they announced a new album after 20 years titled “Uranos”. And 5 years after a new single titled “Irida” just came out recently starting a new promising chapter for them.  

During those 26 years  Stereo Nova have not performed at all except 3 times all of them in Athens. Their performance for the European Capital of Culture in 2023 has opened up a window of hope that Stereo Nova might perform again. Only 2 performances have been announced, one in Athens in July. 

As for the second? We are honored and delighted to welcome this important and legendary group on Thursday 21st of September on reworks, after 26 years on a show that will make history.

Preworks: INNELLEA, Adana Twins, Ison, Momery στις 28 Ιουνίου

Η αντίστροφη μέτρηση για το Reworks Festival 2023 αρχίζει… ώρα για preworks!

To μεγάλο event που μας προετοιμάζει για το μουσικό γεγονός του Σεπτέμβρη στη Θεσσαλονίκη, επιστρέφει και φέτος στο Βασιλικό Παλατάκι.

Πέρσι το preworks παρουσίασε τους ARTBAT, τον Ison και τον Symmetric σε ένα μοναδικό απόγευμα το οποίο ακόμη έχουμε στην μνήμη μας.

Αυτή τη χρονιά υποδεχόμαστε τον Innellea, έναν από τους πιο αγαπητούς και επιτυχημένους παραγωγούς/djs της γενιάς του. Με δεκάδες chart topping tracks κι ένα πρόγραμμα ασφυκτικά γεμάτο για τους επόμενους μήνες, ο Innellea επιστρέφει σε έναν χώρο που λάτρεψε και γνώρισε την αποθέωση λίγους μήνες πριν στο Reworks Festival.

Σε αυτό το απόγευμα που προμηνύεται συναρπαστικό, θα βρίσκονται μαζί μας και οι Adana Twins. Το chart-topping δίδυμο βρίσκεται αυτή τη στιγμή στο καλύτερο σημείο της καριέρας του, με συμμετοχές στα μεγαλύτερα φεστιβάλ και παραγωγές που υποστηρίζονται από τους κορυφαίους της σκηνής.

Στις 28 Ιουνίου, το ραντεβού μας γνώριμο, αφού από τις 17:00 θα βρεθούμε όλοι μαζί στον υπαίθριο χώρο του Βασιλικού Παλατιού, δίπλα στη θάλασσα, σε ένα από τα ομορφότερα σημεία της Ανατολικής Θεσσαλονίκης.

Τα ευχάριστα νέα δεν σταματούν εδώ, αφού μαζί μας θα βρίσκεται και ο Ison αλλά και οι Momery που καταφθάνουν με περίσσεια ορμή χάρη και στην πρόσφατη νέα κυκλοφορία του στο label Habitat των Mind Against.

 

Τα εισιτήρια είναι τώρα διαθέσιμα μέσω Cometogether.

– Λόγω του μεγάλου αριθμού προσέλευσης που υπολογίζεται για σήμερα, συμβουλεύουμε να έρθετε από νωρίς για την όσο πιο άνετη προσέλευση σας. Δείχνοντας επίσης και την υποστήριξη σας σε όλους τους καλλιτέχνες που εμφανίζονται, κάτι πολύ σημαντικό.

– Μιας και δεν υπάρχει ιδιωτικό ή δημόσιο parking στην περιοχή, συνιστάται η προσέλευση με ταξί ή λεωφορείο.

– Θα υπάρχουν ενεργά POS σε κάθε σημείο πώλησης μέσα στον χώρο, στα μπαρ και στην είσοδο όπως σε κάθε διοργάνωση, ωστόσο λόγω της πολύ χαμηλής διαθεσιμότητας του δικτύου 3G & 4G στον χώρο του Κυβερνείου, συναντώνται καθυστερήσεις ή ακόμη και μη λειτουργία των POS ανά διαστήματα. Για την αποφυγή οποιαδήποτε καθυστέρησης λοιπόν συμβουλεύουμε την χρήση μετρητών.

Palataki (Kivernio)

Reworks by Day
Wednesday 14 September
Friday 16 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. 

Palataki actually means the “small palace”, also known as the Goverment House (Kivernio). It was initially built as the residence of the Minister of Northern Greece. Later on it became the former royal family’s residence in Thessaloniki.

The Royal Palace  is not open to the public. Following the success of Reworks 2021, Reworks Agora 2022 and Preworks 2022 we are ready to return to the yard of this emblematic location for a 2-day music experience.

The yard of the imposing historical building will host Reworks on Wednesday 14/9 and Friday 16/9 afternoons.

 

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.

During the weekend of 26 & 27 September 2020, reworks connekt presented 14 music performances, 3 discussion panels, 2 interviews and 3 visual performances.

More than 1,8 million people from 52 countries joined at least one of the exclusive online activities including the highlight performances by Nina Kraviz, Dubfire, Patrice Bäumel, Christian Löffler, the first ever dj set at the top of The White Tower in Thessaloniki, video performances filmed in Japan, Spain, Norway etc. All videos are available via Reworks Festival official Youtube channel.

In 2021 the restrictions in Greece were a bit more loose but still present. Reworks presented a series of live concerts and dj sets at the marvelous historic location of Kyverneio/Palataki in Thessaloniki. The successful 4-day schedule showcased Reworks as the only contemporary music festival in Greece that ran with the presence of an audience that year, following the regulations and protocols set by the authorities for the prevention of Covid-19.
