Our story

Samos, Summer of 2004:
a group of friends has the idea to create an event to bring together the music they love with the place they know.
The concept is adopted by the Cultural Association of Ireon and the local business association,
and the first three days of IREON ROCK FESTIVAL are born.

Since the beginning of the festival, Blues Bug, local rock bands, dj's and artists from the domestic music scene have included: Filippos Pliatsikas (2005,2016), Domenica (2006), Locomondo (2006,2007,2009,2015), MPLE (2006), Mikro (2007,2008,2012), Marsheaux (2008), Dimitris Korgialas & Evridiki (2008,2011), Nigma (2009), Imiskoubria (2009), Cyanna (2009), Babis Stokas (2010), Pavlos Pavlidis (2010), Myronas Stratis (2011), Professonal Sinnerz & Komis X (2011), Maraveyas Illegal (2012,2018), Yiannis Aggelakas & 100°C (2012,2017), Kako Synapantima (2012,2013,2018), Active Member (2013), Vasilis Papakonstantinou (2013,2018), Leonidas Balafas (2013), Imam Baildi (2014,2016), Koza Mostra (2014,2017), Sokratis Malamas (2014), Nikos Portokaloglou (2015), Ypogeia Revmata (2015), Burger Project (2015), Soul Fire (2016), Panos Katsimixas (2016), Kitrina Podilata (2016), Konstantinos Vita (2017), Villagers of Ioannina City (2017), Jimmys Panousis (2017), Cayetano (2018).

But, the Festival has evolved. Every year since 2007 it pushes forward to host international artists with global recognition, such as: Aswad (2007), Vegastar (2008), The Stranglers (2009), Stereo MC'S (2010), Manga (2011), Jaya The Cat (2011), Covenant (2012), Dub Pistols (2014), Peter Hook & The Light (2015), Inner Circle (2018). 2008: the Ireon Rock Festival merges with the Cultural Association and is renamed Ireon Music Festival. New genres showcased included; Pop, Electro, Reggae and Ska music.

Success of the festival comes from shared love of good music, love for the place, volunteerism and the solid identity of the Festival, just as they envisioned 15 years ago.
