Chania, Crete island - GR, 17th August 2002

Chania Rock Festival 2002

It was the 17th of August, 2002. We travelled to Chania, which is a beautiful town on the west part of Crete island, Greece.
No one could expect a move like the one of Nick Athinaios and Max FM, who definitely deserve congratulations for something so unique, as far as the situation of a rock/metal scene in Crete is concerned!
And there it was... 6 bands including very big names, that none of us could ever expect to see live in CRETE (to meet them while on vacation, perhaps yes, but definitely NOT LIVE!).
So the lineup was: UDO (DE), Anathema (UK), Valley's Eve (DE), Deviser (GR), Inner Wish (GR), Shorrowful Angels (GR).
The festival's organising part was almost perfect, with only a very few details missing, like a couple of problems in the sound, at some parts, but they are not even worthy mentioning!

Words are of no essence... pictures are! Therefore, I will stop mumbling right here and will go on with a form of visual communication...

To close this, I wish that people like Nick Athinaios will continue their beautiful and excellent work in the future! All the best!
