Our story

Back in summer of 2004, a group of friends had the idea to bring the music they love to the place they know. The concept is adopted by all the people of Ireon and so the first 3days IREON ROCK FESTIVAL take place.

Name change
Ιn 2008, the Ireon Rock Festival merges with the Cultural Association of Ireon and is renamed to Ireon Music Festival including more music genres like ska, pop, electro, new wave, post-punk, alternative etc.

Success of the festival comes from shared love of good music, love, volunteerism and the solid identity of the Festival, just as some friends envisioned 20 years ago.

The event is co-organised by the Cultural Association of Ireon and the North Aegean Region Administration
