Thessaloniki is the second biggest city in Greece, located in the north of  the country, with a very long history starting from 315 bc.

It is a vibrant port city, filled with Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman remnants as well as more recent post-industrial structures.

September is one of the busiest months for the city, with summer temperatures and many events, like the Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art and the International Fair.

REWORKS therefore, is the perfect occasion to discover every side of Thessaloniki, from the picturesque streets of the old town to the always busy and vibrant city center and it offers a great opportunity for holidaying in Greece, with the Halkidiki peninsula, Mount Athos, Mount Olympus and more at close proximity.

Venues

Thessaloniki Concert Hall

Thessaloniki Concert Hall

“Agora” in Ancient Greece was the gathering space where free citizens would meet in order to discuss important issues. Reworks Agora, the cross-thematic forum of the Reworks festival, is aiming for a similar forward-thinking approach to the future vision for creativity, presenting emerging topics, initiatives and artists that inspire the dialogue on the development of culture, entrepreneurship and technology. Located in Thessaloniki, Greece, Reworks Agora is opening Reworks Festival on the 13th of September 2017, and it aspires to be an inspiration to local creators and cultural workers, creating synergies with international experts and initiatives. Discussions, presentations, talks are held every year in order to showcase the most innovative developments in music industry, digital culture, creative economy and art, contributing to their growth in Greece, while the program is also enhanced with concerts, installations and screenings. Reworks Agora in the framework of the European program We are Europe, welcomes this year European Lab, the forum of one of the biggest electronic music festivals in Europe, Nuits Sonores and Insomnia Festival from Tromso, Norway, to co-curate with Reworks Agora part of the panels and screenings respectively. Reworks Agora is presenting the concert of the experimental pianist and composer Volker Bertelmann, or Hauschka as he is widely known. A musician who brought a new dimension to the prepared piano technique and is also known for his compositions in the field of cinema, theater and art. He has been awarded repeatedly for these compositions, while the music he created for the film Lion was nominated for an Oscar in 2017. Thessaloniki Concert Hall is a contemporary cultural and conference center of international standards, which is one of the landmarks of the city, being in perfect harmony with its history, combining elements from both the Byzantine past and its later cosmopolitan role.
AEGLI - GENI HAMAM

AEGLI - GENI HAMAM

The second day Reworks will present a special project for the first time in the space of Geni Hamam – Aegli. More information for this project will be announced soon. Aegli is located in Geni Hammam, a beautiful building of the Ottoman era. It was built approximately during the last quarter of 16th century from Husref Kedhunda, an owner of many buildings in Thessaloniki, who probably was Kehagias (manager) for vizier Sokolou Mehmed Pasha. It operated as a hamam with separate rooms for men and women, with the usual layout of rooms, until 1912. For many years inside the hamam was operating winter cinema (until 1978) and in the garden was also operating summer cinema. Nowadays, Aegli has entered its new period, operating all year round, marking great success, which establishes it as one of the important spots of the city.
BLOCK33

BLOCK33

The 3rd day, Reworks is moving again this year to the space of Block33, presenting Dixon, Ben Klock, Aleksi Perala, Tijana T among many more other international acts. The space that hosts Block33 is a lot of 3 acres located in Sfagia area in Thessaloniki. Its story begins at 1907 when it started to operate as a tannery. The gradual deindustrialisation of the area resulted in the gradual abandonment of the site. Today, the building in which the factory was housed is considered to be a monument of industrial heritage in Thessaloniki and any interventions are aimed at the partial restoration of the building, especially on the external facades which are considered to be of great importance.
FIX COMPLEX

FIX COMPLEX

Reworks turns a new page in its history by including FIX complex to its venues, for Saturday September the 16th. The industrial complex of FIX brewing company in Thessaloniki was built in 1892 and exemplifies the industrial architecture of the 19th century. It is located in the old industrial zone of the city and its total space is extended to 25 acres. The increased capacity of the venue will begin a new chapter in the festival activities.
THE MET HOTEL

THE MET HOTEL

On the 5th and last day, Reworks like every year, says goodbye from the tallest Rooftop of the city. This year we will have the chance to enjoy the retro and at the same time futuristic pioneer of the German House scene, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Pablo Valentino, founder of FACES Records, an artist who fascinates with the technique, knowledge and great musical range, as well as Andreas Athineos. Within walking distance from the city center, close to the west gate, The Met Hotel is a modern hotel with plenty of amenities, that satisfies even the most demanding visitor. Its amazing terrace with its modern decor and incomparable views of the city's harbor and beyond, is the best setting to magically end the last day of Reworks and arrange our appointment for the next year.
