Tuned City Messene will take place between June 1st and 3rd entirely in Ancient Messene and the village Mavromati next to it. In order to avoid delay, guests are kindly asked to be on the site 30 minutes prior to each performance. Guests are also advised to wear comfortable lightweight clothing and good walking shoes, and have available with them a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and water.

Ancient Messene is quite remote. From Athens you have to plan a 3 hours drive. You can also check Kalamata-Airport for a more direct connection.

With the support of the Creative Europe Program of the EU and the financing by the Onassis Stegi all events will be free of charge for the audience! The OCC will cover all entrance fees to the actual archaeological site for our guests. The offer is not applicable for groups organised by travel agencies unless there has been a prior agreement with the Onassis Stegi.

If you plan to attend, you can prebook your festival pass here.
