The Rockwave Festival journey begins in 1996.This was the first attempt in Greece to create an institution of an annual live music event to host contemporary pop and rock artists and bands. The goal was achieved!

Since 2004, Rockwave Festival is taking place half an hour drive from the centre of Athens in the naturally preserved area, TerraVibe Park in Malakasa, offering a full festival experience. Beautiful green surrounding, camping, shops, bars, fun games, merch and memorabilia are all there! Today, established but yet enthusiastic as ever, Rockwave is the most popular festival in the area of South East Europe, synonymous with the arrival of the summer season, a main attraction for Greek and international audiences.
