The European Festivals Association (EFA) has been uniting distinguished music, dance, theatre and multidisciplinary arts festivals from Europe and beyond for more than 60 years.Thanks to EFA’s history and the continuous support of its members, EFA was chosen to implement the pilot project EFFE by the European Commission.

                The first of EFFE’s initiatives is a quality label. This label is given to festivals with an artistic commitment, involvement in their local communities and a European and global outlook.

                Gyzi Megaron Festival has been selected to receive the EFFE Label 2015-2016. It is now part of the EFFE Platform, initiated by the European Festivals Association, which consists of festivals that stand for artistic quality and have a significant impact on the local, national and international level. The Label recipients represent 31 European countries and offer a wide range of genres and activities to their audiences.

2016 has been defined as Greece’s Year in Russia and Russia’s Year in Greece, by an agreement formed as a joint statement, signed by the two countries in October 2013.

                This year aims to build useful partnerships of mutual benefit with substantial development in both countries’ cultural, scientific, business and social relations, expanding Greek accessibility in Russian society, especially the province, opening up new areas of cultural, scientific, academic and business cooperation, and seeking new markets for tourism, Greek products and Greek innovative productivity.
