August Full Moon at the Acropolis Museum

A live concert featuring songs about the moon will be performed in the museum's courtyard by the Hellenic Air Force Band.

On August 12, city-dwellers and tourists can enjoy the Acropolis Museum’s annual celebration of the August Full Moon with an open-air concert of Greek songs dedicated to the moon. The performance, by the Hellenic Air Force Band, will take place in the museum’s courtyard at 21:00 and will include classic hits from the world of cinema as well as well-known foreign melodies.

Made up of senior and junior officers who are also professionally trained musicians, the band participates in international festivals abroad and leads the parade of expatriate Greeks that takes place on New York’s 5th Avenue on the March 25 Greek Independence Day celebration. It is conducted by Major Alexandros Litsardopoulos and will star the singers Elena Orfanidi and Aggelos Mousikas.


The museum will remain open until midnight and entrance will be free as of 21:00, giving visitors the opportunity to tour the exhibition areas and enjoy the views of the Parthenon showered in August’s moonlight.

The restaurant on the second floor of the museum will be open during the same hours.
