Astralón Suggests : Music Calendar | April 2023
We welcome spring with ultra-interesting music concerts!
Αpril is here with sunny days but also accompanied by rainy and cloudy moments, which – for sure – cannot stop us from attending special concerts in Athens and Thessaloniki. From ambient to classical music, and from electronic pop to new wave and synth pop, here are some of our team’s suggestions.
Location: Gagarin 205 Live Music Space, Athens
Date: 8 April 2023
As part of their tour, which started in 2022 and continues, the Austrian band, HVOB, is also coming to Greece. On Saturday, April 8th, they will take to the Gagarin 205 stage to perform, where they will present their latest album, TOO, among other things songs, and show us why they are one of the most iconic electronic pop acts in the world right now.
Lip Forensics, shortly before the release of their new album, entitled ”APOPHENIA”, will open this unforgettable music event.

Location: Megaron Athens Concert Hall, Dimitris Mitropoulos Hall
Date: 19 April 2023
A figure that captures the history of ambient in a unique appearance in Greece. The award-winning Canadian composer, music producer and sound artist, Tim Hecker, will unfold, in front of the Athenian audience, all his talent and sounds, symbols of a unique intersection between disharmony, electronic noise and melody, with which he has engaged throughout his career.
Special guests, Saber Rider and Anna vs June, are two promising presences in electronic music. Having cooperated recently, the two musicians move between improvisation and elements of different cultures and cultures, which have influenced them musically and stylistically, creating sounds that represent them and fascinate their listeners.
