The Festival of Traditional Dance and Music of Patmos after 7 years of consistent presence in the cultural activities of the island and the country in general, has become one of the most important institutions for the promotion and dissemination of the Greek cultural heritage.

Patmos, one of the Unesco World Heritage Sites, with its rich cultural presence, will host some of the most beautiful examples of the Greek musical-dancing tradition, while for the first time it welcomes the musical-dancing tradition of a country abroad, Latvia.

The 7th Festival of Traditional Dance and Music of Patmos will be held from Friday 7th September to Sunday 9th September 2018, at the outdoor amphitheater of the Holy Cave of the Apocalypse, with Free Entrance.

Artistic directors are Maria Michelli and Theologos Michellis.

Patmos will be the meeting point for 180 dancers from different regions of Greece and abroad (Latvia).

In the three-day musical-dancing event, which is attended by hundreds of Greek and foreign visitors every year, 10 dancing groups will be hosted, presenting their special musical-dancing tradition, their traditional costumes, and their customs, accompanied by professional musicians of Greek traditional music.

From Macedonia to Crete and from Thessaly to the coast of Asia Minor, Greece will show its cultural heritage, being accompanied to this journey by the country of Latvia and its particular musical-dancing tradition.

Alongside the three-day festival, a seminar titled «The musical-dancing tradition of Patmos» will take place, addressed to the members of the dancing groups that will be hosted on the island, including a presentation on the local cultural identity and the teaching of the local dancing repertoire by Maria Michelli and the contribution of Theologos Michellis for the special characteristics of the music tradition of Patmos.

The main goals of the festival are the promotion of cultural diversity, cultural exchanges and artistic partnerships and the promotion and diffusion of Greek and Latvian music and dance tradition. In combination with offering a quality event to the public, the Festival of Traditional Dance and Music of Patmos is one of the island’s top cultural events.
