Festival of Religious Music of Patmos

Festival of Religious Music of Patmos

The Festival of Religious Music of Patmos, which was initiated in 2001, is now one of the most important and unique summer musical events in terms of content and is aimed at presenting events of a high-quality musical and spiritual content, as befits the sacred site where it is hosted.

At the Festival of Religious Music, the environment and the natural habitat of a beautiful island meld in an ideal manner with the religious music and create a marvellous harmony, which leads to special paths of enjoyment and devout concentration, reflecting the sacred and the works of mankind in their very best version, precisely in the manner that the Festival’s Art Director, Mr Alkis Baltas, formulates his fixed position: “Only a spiritual and serious musical festival could be held in the foreground of the Sacred Cave where John wrote down his Revelation, and that is exactly what takes place.”

During the 14 years of its history, the Festival of Religious Music has presented a multitude of artists, offering the audience a summer experience that is totally different from any other musical event, in an outdoor environment. It is not by happenstance that each year the Festival constitutes a pole of attraction for numerous visitors, who wish to experience the particular atmosphere of the performances that are held, but also to enjoy the beauty offered by the island and its ever-welcoming inhabitants.
