Villagers of Ioannina City offer an intriguing mix of traditional Greek folk melodies and psychedelic and progressive rock with stoner vibes. Like their countrymen 1000Mods, they are immensely popular both in Greece and beyond. They are accompanied by Monkey3 on their current tour.

The mesmerizing sounds of the bouzouki and the warm vocals are combined with powerful guitar riffs and luscious keyboards, which results in magical soundscapes that stimulates the imagination. These Greek pioneers, who hail from Ioannina City (yes!), manage to create a progressive sound in which the old and the new come together naturally. Influences from bands like Tool, Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath are also present in their material. Fans of these acts, as well as of Porcupine Tree, Stoned Jesus and My Sleeping Karma should have a field day with Villagers of Ioannina City.

Swiss band Monkey3 offers grand and engaging songs too, which features smart tempo switches, calm intermezzos and numerous sections in which they cut loose and rock out. The Swiss are grandmasters in creating kaleidoscopic soundscapes and structure their compositions so well that you wouldn’t even notice that their music is almost completely without vocals. This is space rock of the highest order that brings to mind old legends like Pink Floyd, Yes and Ozric Tentacles.

Toundra (previously announced as the third band on this bill) have had to cancel their entire tour unfortunately.
